Care Delivery: Building integrated care for patients with many co-morbidities

The term integrated care can sometimes feel like an over-used buzzword.  So it can help to think about what it means for the very patients who are most often failed by existing fragmented systems of care. For Jonathan Darer that means those with complex co-morbidities and how they are treated across the medical system from acute to their homes. Here we to talk to Dr.Darer, Medical Director, Siemens Healthineers and former chief innovation officer at Geisinger to explore why and what integrated care for such patients should look like and how to best deliver it. Few healthcare systems in the world are yet capable of delivering a continuity of care experience that is needed for these complex patients.
