Bridging healthcare to patients to ISAAC Improve Sickle Cell care in Chicago

[Improving Sickle Cell Care in Adolescents and Adults in Chicago] ISAAC

Many Chicago adolescents and adults with sickle cell disease (SCD) experience severe episodic and chronic pain, progressive organ damage, frequent hospitalizations and re-hospitalizations, fragmented care and alarmingly high mortality. Despite the heavy toll in human suffering and related disruption to daily life, relatively few resources are devoted to improving the lives of people with this condition. ISAAC is a study designed to improve clinical care and patient outcomes of people with sickle cell disease by designing, testing, and implementing an integrated model of longitudinal and emergency care.
