Chronic Care Management : The Silver Tsunami is Coming. Are you Ready? 

Posted on 8 February 2018 | 3:26 pm by Chris Caspar, CEO


In the U.S. today, one in four Americans has multiple coexisting chronic conditions. That number rises to three in four Americans at age 65 and older1, or approximately 36 million Medicare eligible patients4, potentially creating a state of multimorbidity6- the co-occurrence of multiple chronic or acute diseases and medical conditions - within one person. The impact of these conditions can go beyond the patient as family members step in to help with even the most basic activities such as bathing, getting dressed or preparing a simple meal. Many times, it can be a challenge to know what’s best for the patient without a plan and direction on how to manage complex medication schedules, doctor visits and the overall burden of the co-occurring conditions.
