In 2010, the Strategy for Tackling the Challenge of Chronicity in the Basque Country was published. It contains policies and projects aimed at reinventing the health delivery model with the purpose of improving the quality of care for chronic patients and advancing toward a more sustainable, proactive, and integrated model. We present 3 projects here: population stratification, integrated care initiatives, and innovation from health care staff.
