CareConcepts: Initiative to integrate payor-sponsored disease management into primary care practice

Executive Summary:  The Connecticut Center for Primary Care developed CareConcepts to improve outcomes for chronic disease patients by incorporating payor-sponsored disease management into primary care practice. Funding from The Physicians Foundation supported the CareConcepts team in developing and implementing the educational program, building relationships with Primary Care Coalition of Connecticut and Transforming Healthcare in Connecticut Communities and deploying care coordination models and health information exchange. After the completion of the grant, the CareConcepts team aimed to develop and deploy a program that could be statistically proven to improve clinical outcomes for patients with chronic diseases.
