Learning from the International Experience, Year 6

As policymakers debate the best ways to curtail cost growth in health care, one of their top priorities is to address the challenges posed by aging populations and the epidemic of chronic illness. The sixth in a series of grants to the London School of Economics and Political Science will support the work of a team of country health policy experts to compare best practices from around the world in caring for patients with a high burden of chronic disease and then assess the potential applicability of these practices to the United States. Areas of focus will include: bundled payment; care coordination and care teams; preventive care; avoidance of hospital admissions and readmissions; mental illness and dementia as comorbidities; and use of telemedicine and mobile health technology. Project findings will be presented at the The Commonwealth Fund’s 2013 international symposium, and selected papers will be submitted to the journal Health Affairs.
