The Accountable Care Forum will outline the benefits of using an integrated accountable care system to assist patients suffering from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, and who require rigorous, all-encompassing treatment plans. The study will involve a pool of people aged 18 and above diagnosed with type-2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and those at high risk of developing the disease.
Conference participants will receive detailed action plans and recommendations, including the process of identifying the cohort; the singling out of individuals within the group suffering from diabetes; a screening plan for the remaining subjects; the development of a care pathway; the establishment of a multidisciplinary team to manage patient care; and individualised healthcare plans and project monitoring.
