World Innovation Summit for Health

A Healthier World Through Global Collaboration

Accountable Care

The Accountable Care Forum will outline the benefits of using an integrated accountable care system to assist patients suffering from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, and who require rigorous, all-encompassing treatment plans. The study will involve a pool of people aged 18 and above diagnosed with type-2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and those at high risk of developing the disease.

Conference participants will receive detailed action plans and recommendations, including the process of identifying the cohort; the singling out of individuals within the group suffering from diabetes; a screening plan for the remaining subjects; the development of a care pathway; the establishment of a multidisciplinary team to manage patient care; and individualised healthcare plans and project monitoring.

Forum Chair: Mark McClellan, MD, PhD
