Why Adopting a Chronic Condition Program is Important for Your Organization?
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about half of all adults—117 million people—have one or more chronic health conditions. And one of four adults has two or more chronic health conditions1. Seven of the top 10 causes of death in 2010 were chronic diseases. Two of these chronic diseases—heart disease and cancer—together accounted for nearly 48% of all deaths3. And, 84% of all health care spending in 2006 was for 50% of the population who have one or more chronic medical conditions2. These are staggering statistics that affect us all. For organizations, keeping their members’ chronic conditions under control is essential for quality outcomes and financial success. Adopting a program to address, educate and empower members on managing their conditions will create sustainable behavior change with lasting results.
