Disease management research looks to discover better ways to coordinate healthcare interventions and communications for populations with conditions in which patient self-care efforts are significant. Such conditions include diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, heart failure, arthritis and other chronic (on-going) diseases. These conditions often require continuing healthcare monitoring, medications and management of disease by the individual and their healthcare team.
