Providing care for individuals with significant medical needs disproportionately drives the cost of medical care in the United States. In fact, 5% of patients in the U.S. account for nearly half of all health care spending. This population of high-need individuals includes a diverse group of people with multiple chronic diseases and varying levels of medical, functional, social, and psychological complexity. Improving care management of this vulnerable population requires the active involvement of a broad range of stakeholders and must include the integration of medical and social services. In Effective Care for High-Need Patients: Opportunities for Improving Outcomes, Value, and Health, a special publication from the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), experts provide insight into care models for high-need patients that have proven results and identify opportunities for action across multiple sectors. Improving the care delivery of high-needs patients, while also considering the cost of care, is possible. But, it’s going to take a coordinated effort from everyone.
