Seeking lasting changes for persistent health care issues.
Chronic disease kills an estimated seven out of ten people each year. And these same chronic diseases—several of which can be controlled, but not cured—now account for 86% of our nation’s health care costs.
That’s a big shift. And a big deal. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable and controllable.
Most of us understand that solving health care issues tied to chronic disease involves many interlocking disciplines: prevention, care delivery, treatment methods, administrative and payment processes and more.
Are you working on an innovation that advances one or more of these things?
