It’s a well-known fact that people with chronic conditions normally use more healthcare resources, including physician visits, hospital care, and prescription drugs. 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
An effective disease management program focuses on improving employee health and reducing healthcare costs while improving the quality of life for those with chronic illnesses. The result is a reduction in healthcare service use and costs associated with avoidable complications, such as ER visits and hospitalizations.

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
