Health systems around the world have built complex care management models to better care for the small group of patients who represent an outsized amount of health care spending. The most successful care management programmes activate patients to better self-manage in the community, thereby reducing their over-reliance on the hospital.

A few years ago, specialty providers in the Netherlands began proposing minimum volume thresholds for certain procedures.

In two research studies this year, the Global Forum investigated the connection between health and non-health care services.
