The latest disease burden challenge: People with multiple chronic conditions
Abstract:In order for the transformation of the health care system to be successful, all aspects of the health care system must evolve to meet the new challenges created by a changing burden of disease. This chapter focuses on five components of the health care system that have evolved continuously over the past 50 years and will continue to need to evolve if the health care system is going to be responsive to the current and future burden of disease. The five components of the health care system are: 1) biomedical and health services research, 2) health professions education, 3) financing of health care services, 4) delivery systems, and 5) quality metrics.
