Diabetes population health management requires a 360° approach to fit the lifestyles of all patients. This webinar will cover the challenge and promise of diabetes population health, engaging people in healthy diabetes lifestyles, and multi-media interventions for diabetes self-care.
The growth of pay-for-value in healthcare and its accompanying emphasis on population health strategies have increased the central role of quality metrics. For example, Medicare Advantage plans now receive bonus payments based on their quality as measured through STAR ratings. This webinar will address various quality measurement systems and the impact of diabetes on these healthcare quality metrics.
Consumerism is now a central part of healthcare driven by the growth of public and private exchanges, high-deductible health plans and population health strategies. This webinar will cover the role of consumerism and highlight strategies to engage members and patients as consumers using diabetic population health strategies as a case study.
Communication channels are constantly evolving and patients are accessing health information in new and innovative ways. The best channel to reach the Medicaid population might not be the best fit for the Medicare population – or even the Medicare/Medicaid dual eligible population. This webinar will address the latest trends in reaching and engaging these populations in their own diabetes self-care.
Boosting health plan member loyalty and improving health outcomes are two parallel objectives vital to health plan success. For Medicare Advantage plans, a one-percentage point increase in member retention through the Annual Enrollment Period or a one-point STAR rating improvement can represent millions in revenue and enhanced profitability. Effective patient engagement strategies that promote healthy lifestyles can improve member retention. The following tips are recommendations to retain and engage members in pursuing healthy lifestyles.
Diabetes dramatically impacts the health of all populations, and no population is more impacted than seniors aged 65 and older. The CDC estimates that the prevalence of diabetes is more than 2.5 times greater for seniors than adults ages 20-64, and that nearly 27 percent of seniors have diabetes. The key to changing a lifestyle is modifying habits, so the challenge becomes how to help seniors and those with diabetes fit the appropriate lifestyle changes into their habit streams. This paper focuses on how to address this challenge.
