Chronic care is medical care which addresses pre-existing conditions or long-term illnesses. As opposed to acute care, which is concerned with short-term illnesses, chronic care aims to maintain patient wellness by keeping the symptoms of these conditions or illnesses in remission, while maintaining the necessary treatment regimes and quality of life.
Chronic Care Treatment
Effective chronic care often requires the careful tracking of patient status to ensure the appropriate treatment is given. Appropriate treatment becomes challenging when multiple disorders co-exist, a development called multi-morbidity. Another challenge of chronic care is the coordinating of medications that could adversely interact with one another, a development referred to in some circles as “therapeutic competition.”
