We take a patient-centric approach to this focus area, using our data to help prevent, detect, diagnose and treat chronic disease and multimorbidity.
Chronic conditions are among the most common, costly and — in many cases — preventable health problems. Despite the dramatic advances in treating individual pathology, health outcomes for these conditions suggest that we need multimorbidity research to combat epidemic trends that threaten the health care system and public health.
Our researchers consider the complexity of chronic disease and broader contextual realities to both address disease prevention and help clinicians better care for patients.
Our findings lower overall health care costs while leading to an improved quality of life and lower mortality for individuals with co-occurring conditions.
