9780761919674: Managed Care and The Treatment of Chronic Illness

Managed Care and the Treatment of Chronic Illness is a unique presentation of available research in the treatment and outcome of care for the chronically ill patients in managed care settings. Chronic illnesses require frequent and specialized treatment for patients – anathema to the short-term and cost-effective objectives of MCOs. Professor Christianson, aided by five expert collaborators, addresses MCO strengths and issues in treating these patients, looks at research results comparing treatment in MCOs versus fee-for-service medicine, and considers the various management techniques and programs to deliver care to enrollees with chronic conditions. Finally the authors critically address the anticipation of the future for this growing population and research: the changes in the MCO environment this population will demand for successful care and the suggested directions for future research.

Jon B. Christianson is an economist with extensive research and teaching experience in the financing and delivery of medical care. He has published in the areas of managed care, rural health care, mental health care, and care process improvement, and has collaborated with health care providers in a variety of practice settings to evaluate new treatment approaches. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently is on the faculty of the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, where he is the James A.

Review:

"Managed Care and the Treatment of Chronic Illness will be a stepping stone for health service researchers, policy analysts and policymakers, managed care administrators, and educators in the fields of medicine, epidemiology, economics, and sociology. The book makes an important addition to the growing literature advocating more comprehensive system change to improve the outcomes of patients with chronic illness."
