I do believe that such a delivery model would achieve the cost savings mentioned at the end of the article. I'm curious, though, about how they would measure up against the additional costs from the program. The authors make the implication that the cost savings would be in excess of these additional costs. Is there an estimate (however rough) for what each of those might be? How much are we wasting on excessive hospital stays, extra tests, preventable readmissions, etc.? How much is this program projected to cost?
