Disease management programs (DMPs) are structured treatment plans that aim to help people better manage their chronic disease, and maintain and improve their quality of life.
Improving Quality of Care through Disease Management and Components of Disease Management.
The Disease Management Association of America identifies these components as: the healthcare provider should pursue safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable health care. “Full-service disease management programs” must include all 6 of the above components. Programs consisting of fewer components are “disease management support services.”
Identify the target populations: which diseases should be addressed and how can people with those conditions be enrolled in a disease management program?
Establish evidence-based practice guidelines for the conditions that will be managed.
Build collaborative practice models: In addition to physicians, disease management programs utilize nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and other team members.
Educate the Patient: Design a program to teach self-management to patients.
Measure outcomes: establish procedures for tracking costs, utilization, health outcomes.
Systematic application and usage of feedback and reporting.
