Over 50% of U.S. patients have one or more chronic conditions — such as diabetes, obesity, or cardiovascular disease — and growing. Just the most common chronic diseases cost $2 trillion annually, and yet the solution has been elusive. With one foot in fee-for-service and another in value-based reimbursement, the challenges to health care organizations and payers are monumental. The obvious approach is to get patients to take responsibility for their health care choices, but that is a daunting task — until you understand the educational, emotional, and behavioral aspects of that change, and have an integrated delivery mechanism that delivers proven results.
Join us for this webinar, and you will learn how that powerful combination solves the clinical, behavioral, and financial challenges that accompany treating chronic condition patients — all while improving patient satisfaction and loyalty, and improving outcomes and the bottom line.
