Multiple chronic conditions are common and expensive among patients aged ≥65 and are associated with lower quality of life, poorer response to treatment, worse medical and psychiatric outcomes, higher mortality, and higher costs of care.
The primary purpose of this study is to conduct a randomized clinical trial (RCT) to examine the effects of C-CHESS--a web-based intervention--on health outcomes and healthcare use among older adults with several chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, COPD, BMI over 30, congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, arrhythmia/atrial fibrillation, chronic pain, arthritis.
The investigator's hypothesis is that patients assigned to TAU+C-CHESS will have better quality of life and fewer primary care visits than those assigned to TAU+Internet.
Treatment as usual (TAU) + Internet, TAU + C-CHESS
