Abstract: Patients with multiple chronic conditions have been shown to have significant Medicare expenditures. Care coordination programs have been implemented targeting this population by organizations striving to achieve the triple aim of (a) improving healthcare quality, (b) improving the patient experience, and (c) reducing costs. Outcomes of these programs have been mixed. This research brief profiles four published articles that address different aspects of care coordination. Readers are encouraged to access the full articles to learn more details about the intervention strategies and findings described in these articles.
