Description

Chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease account for approximately 9% of populations covered by insurance but account for nearly 65% of total healthcare costs. In addition, these conditions affect the lives and health of over 125 million people in the US and account for more than $500 billion in medical costs. Disease management, sometimes referred to as population health management, is probably the most promising approach that targets and supports intervention for patients with these high cost conditions. Adoption of a coherent disease management program can provide solutions to reducing overall costs by targeting individuals with these chronic conditions and often times co-morbid conditions.


This event will address the major challenges large self-insured employers are currently facing in managing the high-cost of employees with chronic conditions. The main program will feature end-user organizations presenting best practices/case study-driven sessions highlighting ways in which they have managed the rising costs and surrounding challenges of treating chronic conditions.
