high-need patients

People with complex, long-term health care needs, and those living in poverty, often struggle the most to get their needs met. In this video, The Commonwealth Fund's Melinda Abrams and Mark Zezza, along with Jennifer DeCubellis of Hennepin County Health in Minneapolis, talk about new models of care that can help health care providers improve the health and health care of their high-need patients, while also lowering costs. They also explain how focusing on these patients has the potential to improve care for all Americans.
