Personalized Medical Wellness Program
to Tackle Runaway Healthcare Costs
Heal n Cure selected to present at the “Overcoming Obesity” conference
The Obesity Medicine Association (OMA), formerly known as The American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP), has selected Heal n Cure’s paper “Delivering the Return on Health for Corporate Wellness Programs by reversing Obesity” for a Poster Presentation at its upcoming conference, Sept 10-13, 2014 in Austin, TX.
Corporations in the US are deploying ‘Corporate Wellness Programs’ to reduce their healthcare expenses. However, those programs have failed to deliver the ROI, because they do not address the medical needs of employees who are high health care utilizers.
Studies have shown that these high health care utilizers lead to 70% of the health care expenses, resulting from Urgent Care visits, ER visits, subspecialist visits, imaging diagnostics, and invasive interventions. Obesity, Type 2 diabetes, Ischemic Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, Sleep Apnea and associated co-morbidities are highly prevalent in this population. Also, they are at risk for high cost conditions like Stroke, Heart Attack and many different kinds of Cancers (endometrial, breast, colon), leading to high health care utilization.
We present a solution that can help save healthcare costs by enhancing existing corporate wellness programs to identify and serve high health care utilizers. Further, we discuss the specific clinical outcomes achieved by a Bariatrician led care team which provides comprehensive, evidence-based, personalized care for high health care utilizers.
