- America is Losing Ground on Dire Diabetes Complications: Let's Turn It Around
Epidemiologic and statistical experts from the diabetes division of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote an important article on the surge of diabetes complications between 2010 and 2015, largely due to lifestyle modifiable factors in the May 21, 2019 issue of JAMA. The article is a dire warning about young (age 18-44) and middle-aged (age 45-64) adults who disproportionately represented the resurgence in diabetes complications.
While work needs to continue to better understand the demographics and behaviors of subsets in these age groups, the message is that we have to do more to prevent diabetes and reach diabetic individuals who are on a collision course with serious maladies.
APH is dedicated to reversing this untoward trend – and has done so for many clients – but there is more work to do.
- Is Wellness Outreach with Blinders on Really Still Happening?
Yvonne Daugherty, VP of Development, Advanced Plan for Health
So many health and wellness-related programs today are pinpointing one area of disease, such as diabetes, and providing advice and support for just that one area without taking into effect a holistic picture of the person receiving support. Programs are not as effective this way, and often the members are just ‘checking the box’ in taking their health plan’s calls and texts in order to get the promised rewards.
- What's all the Fuss About Avoiding Flu Shots?
With this season’s flu season starting, we’re asked more and more by clients why there is so much resistance to getting the flu shot, and how they can counter the objections.
Coming out of the record-breaking flu season of 2017, we know this is important and very serious to address. The CDC said 2017's Influenza Death Toll Was the Highest in 40 Years! “The flu, as well as flu-related complications, was responsible for 80,000 U.S. deaths last winter. That’s the highest flu-related death toll in the U.S. four decades.” Of the estimated 80,000 who died of flu and its complications, 180 were children – and “approximately 80 percent of those deaths occurred in children who had not received a flu vaccination.”
- Influence on Lifestyle Change Does Have an Impact on Outcomes
Once populations are targeted for support and intervention via our Poindexter advanced and predictive analytics (via current state and predicted risk factors), we’ve found that one of the most effective ways to support targeted employees and members is through live or telephonic nurse influence and intervention.
Nurses are able to deliver individuals the education and support they need to make important lifestyle and preventative care changes. This is one of the most effective programs that we’ve seen in delivering needed outcomes.
- Pre-Emptive and Analytics-Based Early Action Can Delay Kidney Dialysis, Reduce Plan Costs and Improve Quality of Life
Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, MSN, CCM - Vice President, Clinical Operations, Advanced Plan for Health & Joy McGee-Cory - Senior Vice President, Advanced Plan for Health
Early intervention is the key to slowing or stopping chronic kidney disease (CKD), improving the quality of lives for those at risk and containing health plan costs. Avoiding dialysis for just one member represents a health plan savings of $350,000 to $700,00 per year, which more than pays for the CKD program by itself.

- Taking the final mile with Population Health data findings - Nurse Navigation is one avenue
More and more frequently, our current and prospective employer group clients will ask us what we see as the most effective avenues to support employees and members who have been identified through analytics for outreach and support.
There are many avenues that our clients are taking to get individuals the education and support they need. Nurse Navigation is one of the most effective programs that we’re partnering with our clients to launch and manage. We thought this would be a good topic to cover during National Nurses Week.
