Sponsored by: Diabetes Disease Management: Practical Strategies for Identifying At-Risk Populations and Avoiding Complications

Diabetes Disease Management: Practical Strategies for Identifying At-Risk Populations and Avoiding Complications, a June 28, 2006 audio conference, will examine case studies of diabetes disease management programs.

A disease management focus on diabetes can not only reduce the healthcare costs related to diabetes, but can also impact the costs of the many chronic conditions that are exacerbated by diabetes.

During this 90-minute audio conference, industry experts David Larsen, director of quality improvement at SelectHealth, and Dr. Jaan Sidorov, medical director with Geisinger Health Plan, will describe how their programs identify potential members for diabetes disease management programs, the interventions given and the impact these programs are having on patient outcomes and the bottom line.

3.) Health Risk Assessments: First Line of Defense in Population Health Management

A powerful component of a health population management strategy is the Health Risk Assessment (HRA), which evaluates a population's health status and targets actionable programs to address identified risks. Whether implemented by employers or health plans, developing effective HRAs and mining the resulting data is a strategic means of harnessing healthcare costs and fostering consumer awareness of their own health state. Last month, the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) polled its online audience to gauge the presence and power of HRAs in the healthcare industry.
