Published By: Polycom     Published Date: Mar 13, 2015
The days are gone when health issues would be treated clinically in isolation from the many other factors that affect the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health care and care delivery are identifying the social determinants of health for various populations such as environmental conditions, economic status, and access to resources and support.

How Employers Can Help Manage the Chronic Disease Epidemic

Published By: Fitbit     Published Date: Jan 28, 2019
Chronic disease is a major expense for America’s healthcare system. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 90 percent of the $3.3 trillion in U.S. healthcare spend is for chronic diseases. If appropriate steps aren’t taken to improve both prevention and treatment of such diseases, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease predicts that the projected total cost of chronic disease in America could tip the scales at $42 trillion by 2030. The most expensive conditions in terms of direct healthcare costs are diabetes, Alzheimer’s and osteoarthritis, and the three most common chronic conditions are hypertension, dyslipidemia and osteoarthritis.
