A new study on the effectiveness of mHealth’s ability to facilitate patient adherence to chronic disease management has recently been released, highlighting some interesting results that could help the industry improve as a whole in 2015.
The PCMH model has been shown to reduce costs while improving quality of care and most benefits patients who suffer from multiple chronic illnesses and need closely monitored care from several different providers.
