Disease management: origins, basic concepts, and practical considerations
Concill AM, Horowitz DA

Today's medical educators, practicing physicians, and trainees are challenged by a health care system that increasingly demands prevention and management of chronic diseases. Disease management is an alternative to traditional patient care that encourages a team of health care providers to work collaboratively to help patients with specific diseases that are often chronic and costly achieve the best possible health outcomes. Using a clinical scenario involving a patient with congestive heart failure, the authors discuss the definition, history, and principles of the disease management approach.
