Disease management has evolved over the years and the industry has begun to shift its focus to chronic care management and integrating wellness and prevention into its strategies. With an aging population, and more people living longer with multiple chronic conditions, healthcare costs will continue to rise. Efforts to improve the quality of care, provide more convenient access to care, and the use of technology to facilitate communication are emerging as important trends.

The 8th Disease Management Colloquium will tackle DM initiatives in health systems, at the employer and plan level, within healthcare providers and in freestanding disease management enterprises. It will present case studies of disease management efforts in a variety of settings. It explores the role of disease management as it affects Medicare, Medicaid, the commercially insured, and the under- and uninsured; the role of evidence-based medicine; the use of incentives for physicians and consumers; new tools and techniques; innovations by health plans, disease management companies and the community; and key legislative and policy issues affecting the future of disease management.

The Colloquium seeks to better educate government agencies, the health care industry (including health plans and providers), employers, and the general public about the important role disease management programs play in improving health care quality and outcomes for persons subject to chronic conditions.

The industry is raising the bar and new and innovative programs, tools and concepts are being developed. Join us at the 8th Annual Colloquium!
