Disease management started in the U.S. during the 1970s in order to decrease variability in clinical and managerial processes, control costs, and improve the quality of attention. Throughout the 21st century, a growing body of literature has emerged allowing the assessment of concepts, components, methodologies and challenges of management disease programs.
