Modern medicine is a glittering edifice of possibilities. But it has also become a house of cards. For the average patient, who has multiple chronic conditions playing out among a host of psychological and socioeconomic issues, navigating the health care system is challenging. For clinicians and institutions, designing and executing complex care plans has also become challenging. As a result, many patients do not receive most of the potential benefits that health care has to offer. Unfortunately, some of these missed opportunities result in recurrent decompensations of chronic illnesses, such as heart failure (HF).
