Abstract

The steps involved in shifting from demand to disease management were the focus of one of the forums held during the Second Annual Disease Management Congress [California, US; February 1998]. At the session, an example of a framework that supported demand and disease management in an integrated delivery system was discussed by Lisa Vance from the Providence Health System in Portland, Oregon, US. Dr Les Cordes from the Physicians Medical Group of Santa Cruz County, California, then discussed demand and disease management within the context of the Community-Acquired Pneumonia Program within an independent practice association.
