Disease Management Responds to the IOM's Challenge to Enhance Healthcare Quality, Integrates into Medicare and Medicaid, and Proliferates in the Private Sector

The disease management enterprise is emerging as one of the major initiatives to make America's healthcare system more efficient and cost effective and to enhance healthcare quality and reduce medical errors. Disease management is proliferating in both the private and public sectors.

Disease management efforts are nested throughout the health system - at the employer and plan level, within healthcare providers and in freestanding disease management enterprises. The Disease Management Summit presents case studies of disease management efforts in a variety of settings. The Summit explores the role of disease management in patient safety, Medicare and Medicaid initiatives in disease management, the regulatory setting for disease management, custom care, evidence-based medicine, information flow, and recent innovation by private disease management companies.

The Summit seeks to better educate government agencies, the health care industry (including health plans and providers), employers, and the general public about the important role disease management programs play in improving health care quality and outcomes for persons subject to chronic conditions.
