Obesity & Weight Management Benchmarks and Case Studies

If your organization is weighed down by the burden of obesity-related healthcare costs
in your population, you are not alone. Obese individuals in the United States are at
greater risk for chronic disease — type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension,
stroke, even some forms of cancer — at an annual cost of $117 billion. Not included in
this estimate are indirect costs of obesity — income lost from decreased productivity,
restricted activity, absenteeism and bed days.

Obesity & Weight Management Benchmarks and Case Studies provides actionable
information on current obesity and weight management programs for adults, children
and adolescents. Whether your organization will focus on obesity and weight management
in the near future or retool an existing program, it will benefit from a review of metrics and
measurements to evaluate and plan your program and compare performance and utilization
data.
