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.

How The New Broker Can Take The Lead With Predictive Modeling

Data analytics is the current and most effective means to achieving population health management, but let’s face it: To many employers, population health management is merely a health-benefits catchphrase, an empty expression that represents a goal but lacks the means to achieve it. However, in the right hands, data analysis is much more than that. Data analysis gives brokers the edge to fulfill population health management goals by providing common-sense human interactions to take action on the steps identified for plan performance.

Healthcare Moves into the 21st Century

Innovation is defined as a new idea, more effective device or process. Healthcare is widely considered one of the least innovative business sectors by the tech industry and yet, according to a recent survey by Ketchum, consumers value innovation in healthcare above innovation in all other industries. Considering that many doctors still fax prescriptions to pharmacies to be filled, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this group is slow to adopt technological advances. Things are changing though.
