A survey by Neilsen Strategic Health Perspectives and the Council of Accountable Physician Practices (CAPP), found that only 49 percent of theĀ 30,007 respondentsĀ said that their physicians could share information about their health and were aware of medical-history information before an appointment.

Among other rather depressing findings, summarized below by FierceHealthcare:

“Thirty-seven percent of patients diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses –one of the groups that can benefit most from care coordination–reported they had follow-ups or care management, just slightly higher than 36 percent of patients overall.”

“The study also found that only a third of patients have access to 24/7 care like weekend or evening hours, access to urgent care in the same system or other off-hours access like telephone lines.”
