High-Need, High-Cost Patients: Challenges & Promising Models

August 29, 2016

Health systems have applied many innovative new strategies for improving quality and reducing costs when it comes to care for high-need, high-cost patients, who typically have multiple chronic conditions. Which of these innovations show promise, and what can we learn from them?

This briefing defines who high-need, high-cost patients are, discusses the importance of this population to health system transformation, presents current data on this population, and emphasizes the core elements of successful interventions.
