Technology Brings Targeted Solutions to Chronic Illness

According to a recent article titled " A New Generation of Benefits: Chronic Illness" from Leader's Edge Magazine, "90% of U.S. healthcare spend goes toward people with mental health issues and other chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. That number does not factor in lost economic productivity, which when included brings the total cost to around 20% of GDP."

 

Chronic illness is a huge challenge faced by employers. Not only is it costly, but it also has a large impact on the health, well-being and productivity of their workforce. 

 

The article includes a helpful infographic that highlights some unique strategies, including population health management tools to treat and prevent chronic disease like autoimmune disease. These solutions are designed to impact employee health, which directly connects to employer spend.
