Pennsylvania group improves health, lowers cost
Philadelphia Inquirer, February 11, 2009

The group, Health Quality Partners, educates patients who have chronic diseases and gives them monthly face-to-face contacts with nurses. The program could inspire those involved in ongoing efforts across the U.S. to find better ways to manage chronic illness.
