Chronic disease burdens our health system with higher care visits, readmissions, care, and costs. Those with higher numbers of chronic diseases are responsible for higher costs. o Drivers of Risk include Food Accessibility, Access and Barriers to Primary Care, and Health Insurance Coverage. o Spending is ballooning and challenges are converging, but overall takeaways were presented that outlined opportunities to consider.
