Disease Management Helping To Control Managed
Care Costs; Success Stories Revealed
Manasquan, N.J. -- Managed care organizations are using a variety of disease
management organizations to better control healthcare costs, according to the
recently published Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition.
# # #
The Managed Care Yearbook looks at how: a congestive heart failure
program at Humana achieved a reduction in hospital admissions, emergency room
visits and healthcare costs; a diabetes program improved employee compliance
outcomes at Black & Decker Corporation, and an asthma program at the Rochester
Park Medical Group increased medicine regimen compliance and decreased missed
days of usual activity.
The Managed Care Yearbook also covers how to: achieve successful
outcomes with your disease management program, use outcomes measurement for
clinical quality improvement, operationalize disease management and overcome
disease management obstacles.
The Yearbook details the critical success factors in disease management,
such as targeting a definable disease that is manageable. Three other factors are
described in the Yearbook as well as how to capitate diabetes disease management
programs, which is difficult because comorbidities are interwoven with the disease.
You'll also get the details of how one health system has identified 30 health
conditions that account for approximately 80 percent of its costs. And, how that
system is addressing these conditions.
Within the 478 pages of The Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition,
you'll also have access to information on managed care trends, cost containment,
healthcare quality assurance, accreditation, Medicare and Medicaid managed care,
making managed care work, member retention strategies, innovations, mental
health, legislation and regulations affecting managed care, management information
systems, executive compensation and managed care market news.
The Managed Care Yearbook, Fourth Edition, is available for $243.50,
which includes shipping and handling.
