Comprehensive Care Coordination for Chronically Ill Adults is divided into two parts. The first provides thorough discussion and background on theoretical concepts of care, including a complete profile of current demographics and chapters on current models of care, intervention components, evaluation methods, health information technology, financing, and educating an interdisciplinary team. The second part of the book uses multiple case studies from various settings to illustrate successful comprehensive care coordination in practice. Nurse, physician and social work leaders in community health, primary care, education and research, and health policy makers will find this book essential among resources to improve care for the chronically ill.
