The article, “Overcoming Patient Barriers to Chronic Disease Management” by Sara Heath states,

“Improving adherence to chronic disease management and treatment plans is a critical facet of improving outcomes and keeping costs low. In order to engage patients, communicate efficiently, and help individuals achieve their wellness goals, providers must identify barriers to patient adherence and work collaboratively to overcome those obstacles.

Chronic disease is a prevalent and expensive issue in the healthcare system. About half of US adults, or 117 million individuals, have at least one chronic disease, according to 2012 data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This high volume of chronic illness accounted for approximately 86 percent of healthcare spending in 2010, the CDC says.

Those costs are further exacerbated by the nearly 80 percent of patients who drop out of their chronic disease management programs, setting them up for complications or worsening symptoms down the road.”
