Chronic Disease Management
The profile of diseases contributing most heavily to death, illness, and disability among Americans changed dramatically during the last century. Today, chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and diabetes are among the most prevalent, costly, and preventable of all health problems. Seven of every ten Americans who die each year, or more than 1.7 million people, die of a chronic disease. The prolonged course of illness and disability from chronic disease arthritis, for example, result in extended pain and suffering and decreased quality of life for millions of Americans. Chronic, disabling conditions cause major limitations in activity for more than one of every ten Americans, or over 25 million people.
