AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) Report Details Hardships of Chronically Ill and Their [Medical] Caregivers, Urges Reform. The survey results highlight the lack of coordination that exists within the U.S. health care system. More than one in five chronically ill patients felt their health care providers did not do a good job communicating with each other; nearly as many (20 percent) said their health had suffered as a result. Uncoordinated care, among other factors, resulted in medical errors for nearly one in four patients. AARP. March 23, 2009. (Also see: Physician and Patient Relationships)
