Chronic conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, cancer, and diabetes are responsible for most of our nation’s health care costs. More than 40% of New York adults suffer from chronic conditions, which refer to diseases that persists over time and are not passed from person to person.
Healthy diet, exercise, and getting enough sleep may help prevent certain chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Here are some guidelines to share with your employees to help those with chronic conditions:
Brighton Health Plan Solutions’ nurse case management program, for example, has helped members lose weight, exercise more, stop smoking, and achieve other health goals. They not only feel better, but they have even been able to stop taking certain medications, saving them both time and dollars.
Actively taking these steps can make it easier for your employees to manage and successfully cope with a chronic condition and avoid future complications.
