We’re already in the midst of a chronic disease crisis in the U.S. as nearly 40% of the country has two or more chronic physical and mental health conditions. Add to that the rising costs of staying healthy — things like healthy food, preventive care, and medications — and you’ve got a perfect storm brewing.
Is there time to prevent it before system-wide healthcare costs skyrocket even more?
We think so.
Built right, chronic care solutions help treat existing symptoms while instilling behavior changes that slow or prevent long-term progression. Improved, lasting habits like healthy eating, exercise, and medication adherence can stem the tide, and well-trained providers can help members adapt healthy habits to any budget.
