To Manage Chronic Disease, RI Tries A Team
Having a chronic disease like diabetes or asthma can be debilitating. It can also be managed with ongoing medical treatment and taking care of your health. But there's a cost to not managing these conditions - to your health, and to the health care system. That's why health care professionals and public officials have been focusing their efforts on helping patients manage those chronic conditions through better primary care. That's the goal of the "chronic care sustainability initiative" in Rhode Island, or CSI RI.
Rhode Island Public Radio Health care reporter Kristin Gourlay sat down with CSI's new co-director, Pano Yercaris to find out whether those efforts are paying off for patients and their bottom lines.
