A recent study using data from the Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health program found significant differences in the consultations, problems identified, and their management for people with an intellectual disability compared to the general population. This study found an under management of health conditions common for people with an intellectual disability, also that administrative rather than medically related actions dominated their clinical treatments.
