Chronic medical conditions drive more than 75% of health care spending. However, people with a chronic condition typically get care through a health system designed for acute care — fragmented, episodic care triggered by an adverse health event. This episode discusses how employers can better engage the sicker portion of their employees and family members to improve health and reduce costs.
Scott Wallace is a visiting professor at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and a leading expert in employee-health strategy and chronic-disease-care design.
