A new study by RAND Corporation, a nonprofit research organization, finds that while more than 53 million Americans are providing a significant portion of health and support services to individuals with serious illnesses, these family caregivers are often overlooked by the U.S. healthcare system and need to be better integrated into health care teams. The study, entitled A Framework for Integrating Family Caregivers into the Health Care Team, was sponsored by Seniorlink, Inc., a leading tech-enabled health services company.
The study is among the first to take an in-depth look at how to integrate family caregivers into professional healthcare teams – often comprised of physicians, nurses and social workers, among others – by incorporating interviews with payers, providers and caregiver advocates.
