Pennsylvania Governor Rendell Thanks 'Pioneers' for Making Pennsylvania the National Leader on Chronic Care Management and Creating Patient-Centered Medical Homes

n the Prescription for Pennsylvania. And what's exciting is that we've just started. Just imagine the effect it will have the longer it is used for all chronic disease and as more regions of the state begin to use it," the Governor added.

The results for pediatric patients with asthma have been equally encouraging. Compared to last June, twice as many patients now have a documented asthma action plan that tells them how to take their controller medications, how to avoid asthma triggers that may prompt an asthma attack, and what to do in the event of an attack and depending on the severity of the attack.

"When we started finalizing the Prescription for Pennsylvania in 2006, Rosemarie Greco and Ann Torregrossa of my Office of Health Care Reform told me the extent and cost of chronic disease on the people of Pennsylvania," the Governor said. "I thought they had misspoken. They said 75 percent of health care costs can be traced to 25 percent of patients with chronic care; that those with chronic disease only receive 56 percent of the care they need; and that hospitals were charging more than $3 billion for avoidable hospitalizations for chronic disease which would not have been necessary if people were receiving evidence-based care in the community. It was stunning.

"Then, Ann laid out for me a plan, built on the work of a dedicated genius, Dr. Ed Wagner, that could reduce the burden of chronic disease, save money and, most importantly, save and improve lives. Because we also wanted all patients to get better care, we combined the Wagner model with the patient-center medical home concept and I made it a cornerstone of my Prescription for Pennsylvania health care reform plan. And here you are today -- proof that the idea was the right one and that it could make a tremendous difference."
