- 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.

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.

The further we venture into our modern healthcare system, it becomes more apparent that the self-insured employer understands their potential to slash healthcare costs by creating and effectively implementing custom population health management programs. This is not so surprising of a trend, considering that health policy architects designed the Affordable Care Act and quality-based reimbursement initiatives to stem rising healthcare costs through population health management, as we reported in our ebook, "The New Broker."
