Integrated and patient-centred management of Parkinson’s disease: a network model for reshaping chronic neurological care

Chronic neurological diseases are the leading cause of disability globally. Yet, our health-care systems are not designed to meet the needs of many patients with chronic neurological conditions. Care is fragmented with poor interdisciplinary collaboration and lack of timely access to services and therapies. Furthermore, care is typically reactive, and complex problems are managed inadequately because of a scarcity of disease-specific expertise and insufficient use of nonpharmacological interventions. Treatment plans tend to focus on the disease rather than the individual living with it, and patients are often not involved in clinical decision making. By use of Parkinson’s disease as a model condition, this article show an integrated care concept with a patient-centred perspective that includes evidence-based solutions to improve healthcare delivery for people with chronic neurological conditions.

Association of Integrated Team-Based Care With Health Care Quality, Utilization, and Cost

The value of integrated team delivery models is not firmly established. So we evaluate the association of receiving primary care in integrated team-based care (TBC) practices vs traditional practice management (TPM) practices (usual care) with patient outcomes, health care utilization, and costs.


Conclusions: Among adults enrolled in an integrated health care system, receipt of primary care at TBC practices compared with TPM practices was associated with higher rates of some measures of quality of care, lower rates for some measures of acute care utilization, and lower actual payments received by the delivery system.
