Care management delivered by interdisciplinary teams has been demonstrated to be a successful method for treating diseases such as asthma, hypertension, diabetes, and heart failure. Two models have emerged: (1) office-based programs, in which most services are delivered directly from the practice; and (2) insurer-run or purchased (external) programs delivered by third parties. Physician involvement and coordination of patient care with both programs is felt to be advantageous, yet physician involvement has been found to be sporadic.
