Our current health care system was not designed to provide coordinated care for these individuals who are primarily insured by the Medicare and Medicaid programs. As a result, these individuals are not receiving optimum quality of care for many of their chronic illnesses. As the “baby boom generation” gets ready to become Medicare beneficiaries, more providers with specialized training, resources, and new approaches to delivering care for chronic illnesses will be needed to meet their health care needs.

Frequent users of the ED tend to have chronic health problems, and while most ED patients identify a place where they usually receive care, few have had contact with their physicians prior to seeking ED care (Milbrett & Halm 2009; Weber et al. 2008). Increased use of the ED is associated with a lack of access to primary care services (Rust et al. 2008), and a majority of ED visits take place on the weekends or on a weekday after physician office hours (Pitts et al. 2010), or by patients who were discharged from the hospital within the last seven days (Burt et al.

2007). Kroll and colleagues (2006) identified multiple barriers affecting access to primary preventative services for individuals with a chronic disability. They divided these barriers into two primary domains: structural-environmental (conditions in the physical and social environment impacting service delivery), and process (barriers experienced as services were provided to patients). Examples of structural-environmental barriers include: lack of transportation services to appointments, lack of disabled parking spaces and wheelchair ramps into medical buildings, lack of adaptable equipment such as accessible bathrooms, special weight scales for individuals in wheelchairs, and adjustable exam tables.
