Pennsylvania governor touts new program to help chronically ill
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says the state has begun one of the nation's most comprehensive programs to help people who suffer from chronic diseases. The program is in place in southeastern Pennsylvania and will be expanded statewide over the next year. It calls for educating patients about ways to improve their health, coordinating their care through teams of primary care doctors and other healthcare professionals, and changing the way insurers reimburse providers.
