The Value of Chronic Disease Management in the Workplace

According to the CDC, chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading drivers of $3.5 trillion in annual health care costs. Additionally, absenteeism due to chronic conditions can cost employers anywhere from $16 to $286 per employee per year.

During this episode, Richard Goldstein, MD, MHCM, SentryHealth co-founder, talks about the importance of having a chronic disease management program in the workplace. He also discusses how these types of programs can help employers control costs and how COVID-19 has changed how we view the management of chronic disease.

WellOnMyWay includes robust chronic disease management program for conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and musculoskeletal disorders. Employees achieve a better understanding of how to best manage their chronic condition(s) or minimize the risk of condition development. As a result, they’re happier, healthier, and more productive. You’ll see significant improvements in health care costs, absenteeism, productivity, and employee satisfaction.
