More than half of the annual deaths in Broward County are caused by heart disease, cancer, stroke, or diabetes.
TOUCH Partners are working together to improve access to coordinated patient-centered healthcare for all Broward residents in order to manage chronic diseases and improve long-term health.
We work to encourage individuals and their health care providers to engage in preventive services by:
- controlling high blood pressure and cholesterol by integrating proven intervention strategies into usual clinical care
- improving outcomes of arthritis, asthma, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes through chronic disease self-management programs.
