Disease Management

DISEASE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS

It’s a well-known fact that people with chronic conditions normally use more healthcare resources, including physician visits, hospital care, and prescription drugs.

Disease Management

With the number of people living longer today with chronic illnesses - coupled with rising health care expenditures - have prompted health plans / providers, employers, and the government to look for effective ways to reduce healthcare use and costs.

WHAT IS DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Disease management is a proactive approach to employee health that focuses on providing better healthcare while reducing the costs of caring for the chronically ill and is designed to improve the health of persons with specific chronic conditions. This ultimately reducing healthcare service use and costs associated with avoidable complications, such as emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

REDUCTIONS IN HEALTH-CARE SERVICES

We have found that substantial reductions in healthcare services use and expenditures have occurred for many employees enrolled in disease management programs.

HEALTH PLANS AND EMPLOYERS

Historically, disease management programs have been developed and implemented primarily by managed healthcare plans, with almost all healthcare plans have implemented at least one type of disease management program, and many have multiple programs.

Programs for diabetes, asthma, and congestive heart failure are the most common. Preventive PLUS Disease Management Programs can be developed and implemented internally with a focus on perceived industry related illnesses.

BE SURE YOUR EMPLOYEES ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN TO STAY HEALTHY

Spending dollar after dollar on treatable conditions doesn't make any sense if you’re the employee or the business owner.

The simple fact is that by taking better care of ourselves and our employees, the costs associated with conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and even chronic back pain can be significantly lowered with an effective Disease Management Program.
