The human and economic costs associated with chronic disease continue to soar, creating a burden for patients and the healthcare system overall. According to the CDC, six in ten adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease, and four in ten adults have two or more chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are not only the leading cause of death and disability in the U.S., they make up 90% of the nation’s $3.3 trillion annual healthcare costs.
Focusing on life-changing resources to prevent chronic diseases or slow their progression will not only optimize quality of life, it will reduce demand on the healthcare system. Predictive analytics can identify patients at higher risk of developing chronic diseases or in the early stages of their progression. By using this valuable insight, care teams can intervene with personalized programs and services that can help patients avoid long-term health problems that are difficult and costly to treat.
