NDEP Webinar Series - Population Health Management: Improving Health Where We Live, Work, and Play
Join us Tuesday, February 24 at 12 noon EST. Register Now!
United States health care costs continue to soar, outpacing inflation and taking up increasingly larger portions of business, government, and consumer budgets. But while costs are rising, overall health and well-being are declining. A population health management approach considers health quality and costs beyond the clinical setting to integrate health information, management, and support into people's daily lives.
The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) invites you to join them in this webinar that will show you a different way to think about health and wellness on the job and in the community.
At this webinar, you will:
- Recognize the social, economic, and physical environmental factors that contribute to health.
- Find out how employers and communities can work together to control health care spending plus have a positive influence on health outcomes.
- Hear how new technologies can be used for patient engagement, education, and management.
- Tap into resources for enhancing health management in the workplace, in the home, and in time off.
