A new way to tackle chronic diseases: Using whole-person care models in the GCC

GCC health providers can use customized whole-person care models (WPCMs) to care for subpopulations that are at disproportionate risk of, or suffering from, non-communicable diseases. WPCMs have five elements: a care coordinator, a multidisciplinary healthcare team, care collaborators, informatics, and incentive structures. Providers also need foundational capabilities, with digitization as a core aspect of these capabilities.
