Dr. Chad Boult and his team have created a new model of comprehensive health care, called Guided Care, which targets people living with multiple chronic conditions, the typical high-cost Medicare beneficiaries. His plan is based on the simple premise that a patient’s “care plan” is well coordinated, and patients and families are involved in and educated about the care plan. Guided Care is based on the simple notion that one trained professional should guide all aspects of care, uniting the patient, the family, and the medical team.
