Further-more, the effectiveness of such models may be affected by power relations andmarket failures, but the proved potential of a model may represent a generalizedbenefit for the Colombian health system.Impact:In Colombia, considering complications and management of chronic non‐communicable diseases as isolated cases is considered as the highest cost events inhealthcare provision, since an average of 12.8 million pesos is invested in eachpatient. This has led to rethink the management in these patients by means of acomprehensive model that guarantees the effectiveness of healthcare delivery, inthe framework of a healthcare system heavily affected by payment capacity, wherethe market has a strong predominance, such as the case of Colombia.
