Evidence for Better Care

Improving Chronic Illness Careís Chronic Care Model brings together the best in research and practice for chronic illness care interventions. The hallmark of ICICís Chronic Care Model is that it is evidence-based, using only those interventions that have proven themselves in research and in practice.
ICIC has assembled supporting bibliographies of peer-reviewed literature covering†specific chronic conditions: asthma, depression, diabetes, frailty in older persons, hypertension, and congestive heart failure,†in addition to†the Chronic Care Model itself. Articles on other conditions may be included because they describe effective interventions reflecting Model-based care.
