Best Practices in Analytics-Powered Bariatric Management Programs

The U.S. is experiencing a crisis in obesity. More than two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health (NIH). Obesity contributes to, and worsens, fatty liver disease, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis and more. Excessive weight also increases the risk of early mortality. Bariatric surgery is a means to address this issue – but it is not a magic bullet, and it is not an easy path.

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.
