Abstract

The process of implementing management of chronic diseases can be a rigorous task for any healthcare system willing to invest resources for this care model. This paper intends to address aspects of implementation of chronic care programs, including the key disciplines required to provide adequate services. To incorporate details associated with chronic care management, a review of chronic care management program literature was conducted, with the intent of assimilating information for a model suitable for an interdisciplinary team. The study determined that implementation processes are full of intricate details. Staffing needs to be well researched, and a multidisciplinary approach, including the patient and family/caregiver, are imperative to a successful program. Finally, implications such as the lack of administrative staff knowledge, are reviewed in order to allow for further exploration to be completed on this topic.
