Traditional patient care in the U.S. has been fragmented and redundant, resulting in high healthcare costs and poor patient outcomes. New team patient care models are being attempted to improve outcomes and lower the cost of care. Models of integrated and coordinated care, including the Patient-Centered Medical Home model, have demonstrated some improvements, especially for chronically ill patients. Membership in a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and presence of a diabetes diagnosis is tested and results for the chronically ill are discussed.
