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.
