Objective: To evaluate the situation for chronic disease management in China, and to seek the method for improving the collaborative management for chronic diseases in community. Methods: We searched literature between January 2008 and November 2013 from the Database, such as China Academic Journal Full-Text Database, and PubMed. The screening was strictly in accordance with the inclusion and exclusion criteria and a summary was made among the selected literature based on a collaboration model. Results: We got 698 articles after rough screen and finally selected 33. All studies were involved in patient's self-management support, but only 9 studies mentioned the communication within the team, and 11 showed a clear team division of labor. Conclusion: Chronic disease community management in China displays some disadvantages. It really needs a general service team with clear roles and responsibilities for team members to improve the service ability of team members and provide patients with various forms of self-management services.
