The American Heart Association Supports Disease Management (again)

From 'The American Heart Association's 2008 Statement of Principles for Healthcare Reform' published in Circulation and available online:

'Any healthcare reform proposal should provide sufficient public health funding, medical education funding and clinical training resources for programs that improve chronic disease management, care coordination and patient-centered care. To address the growing needs of the population and to respond to the success of team-based approaches to care delivery, healthcare reform efforts also should support and promote the development of new models of care delivery, including those that emphasize the roles of allied health professionals.'

The Disease Management Care Blog seconds that motion.
