Hearing Loss and Associated Comorbidities: What Do We Know?

Published By: Hamilton Captel     Published Date: May 15, 2019

These linkages are often referred to as comorbidities—the simultaneous presence of two or more chronic conditions in an individual. The white paper by Harvey Abrams, Ph.D., focuses on the research literature surrounding seven comorbid conditions associated with hearing loss: social isolation, depression, increased risk of falling, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and even mortality.

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.

Addressing social determinants and their impact on healthcare

Published By: Group M_IBM Q119     Published Date: Feb 22, 2019

Some ethnic groups in the city have rates of overweight and obesity approaching 70 percent of adults. African-American New Yorkers are three times as likely, and Hispanic New Yorkers twice as likely, as white New Yorkers to die from diabetes.1 Is this social policy run amuck? Is it, as some have suggested, an infringement on individual rights? Or is it simply recognition that health issues cannot be treated in isolation from the many other factors that affect an individual’s or a community’s health?
