An estimated 60 million Americans live with chronic pain, a condition that is more prevalent among the elderly.

As the 75 million Baby Boomers move toward retirement, more and more Americans are expected to have untreated or undertreated pain. Left untreated or undertreated, individuals suffering from chronic pain become high utilizers of healthcare services to address their pain. Disease and case management programs that address chronic pain can reduce this often excessive healthcare utilization, while improving the quality of life for those suffering from chronic pain.
