Abstract: Multimorbidity is the most common chronic health condition in adults and is associated with poor health outcomes. Optimal care for people with multimorbidity requires a person-centred approach that considers goals and preferences, improves quality of life and coordinates care across services. Because care is focused on patient outcomes, rather than disease outcomes, this provides an ideal setting for delivery of the Healthy Living Polypill (HLPP). Precision in delivery of the HLPP for people with multimorbidity involves active participation of patients in goal setting, strategies to address functional limitations and frailty, and support to develop the self-management skills necessary to adopt and sustain healthy behaviours. The multidisciplinary team is a key feature of integrated care for people with multimorbidity and all members should have the necessary skills to deliver the HLPP. Integration and continuity across health and social care sectors enhances outcomes and increases opportunities for personalised delivery of the HLPP.
