Abstract/OtherAbstract:
For years, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has showcased the abilities of home care providers to address the needs of the chronically ill and disabled more efficiently and effectively than all too often occurs in our current health care system. Among the populations served by home care providers across the nation, you'll find many who suffer from diabetes or are at risk of developing this disease. Conservative estimates of the direct costs of diabetes are that one out of every seven dollars spent in the U.S. health care system is goes for care or treatment related to diabetes, and the reality may be much greater than that.
