Re-centering diabetes care through community: the iHealthSpace example.

Wagner's modern construct for chronic care recognizes the primacy of 'productive interactions' among the patient, their personal community and the care provider team. No longer the only locus of care, the health system should operate within the context of and have access to the people and resources of the larger community involved in the patient's care. Shared medical visits in the care of patients with diabetes serve as a model for collaborative care inclusive of the patient community in complex chronic disease management.
