Making Sense of Colorectal Cancer Screenings: Age, Risk Factors and Health Analytics

Colorectal Cancer is a combination of rectal and colon cancer considered to be unpreventable and expected to account for 50,630 deaths in 2018. According to Cancer.net, Colorectal Cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosis among both women and men. The good news is that while Colorectal Cancer may be unpreventable, most of its associated risk factors are controllable and successful treatment is not uncommon – particularly in cases where proactive screenings lead to early intervention.

Fatty Liver Disease – Is This Silent, Life Threatening Epidemic on Your Radar?

What if you could impact liver health and keep some plan members / employees from progressing to more serious, life altering, expensive liver disease; like liver cirrhosis and ultimately liver cancer, failure or a liver transplant?

Most people are not aware of fatty liver disease until they are told that they have this potentially deadly, life-sapping condition. Even once diagnosed, people often don’t know how to address the situation and reduce their risk. This is why APH is taking a proactive stance in broadcasting the prevalence and risks of fatty liver disease, which impacts at least a quarter of our population1, and can be prevented or slowed by addressing sedentary lifestyles and poor eating habits, and encouraging those impacted to work with their healthcare provider and nurse health coach / nurse navigator to manage health risks and chronic disease conditions.

Informed and Healthy Employees Make for Healthy Benefit Plans

Employers have found that it is not only the catastrophic conditions inherent in the high risk employee cohort, but also individuals who have reached the high risk group as a result of many different health issues (co-morbidities), lacking a personal physician, and inappropriately using the hospital or emergent care services for preventable problems. Plan members who are bouncing from one physician to another, because they may not understand what they need or where to obtain the requisite services, also present opportunities to improve clinical and financial metrics.
