A new IOM re­port says the epi­demic of chronic ill­ness is near­ing a cri­sis level, driven by a sys­tem that re­wards treat­ment for a spe­cific con­di­tion and not broader over­all health. “The health­care sys­tem doesn’t re­ally mind more peo­ple with more chronic dis­ease. That’s the elephant in the room,” says Dr. Pa­trick Rem­ing­ton, left, who helped over­see the IOM re­port.
