The systematic review by Bleich and colleagues contributes to the much needed evidence supporting management of patients with multiple chronic conditions — multimorbidity.

Although the review’s focus is the United States, it addresses an issue that is highly relevant to all health care systems and raises important questions about how we can design systems to address the needs of this vulnerable group. Literature is now well-established on the impact of multimorbidity on patients, health care providers, and health care systems, but less is known about interventions that can improve outcomes in this group of patients.
