  • Chronic disease are ongoing, generally incurable illnesses or conditions such as heart disease, asthma, cancer, and diabetes. These diseases are often preventable, and frequently manageable through early detection, improved lifestyle choices, and lifestyle modifications. 26% of Americans have multiple chronic conditions.
  • Close to 16% GDP.
  • “ We must [address] the crushing cost of health care. This is a cost that now causes a bankruptcy in America every thirty seconds . By the end of the year, it could cause 1.5 million Americans to lose their homes. It is one of the the major reasons why small businesses close their doors and corporations ship jobs oversees.” President Barack Obama, February 24, 2009 Address to Joint Session of Congress It is estimated that the out of pocket cost of medical care has increased by approximately 30% in the past 5 years.
  • According to the National Business Group on Health – the cost of a single heart attack is between $760,000 to $1 million when you factor direct and indirect costs. More than 109 million Americans report having at least one of the seven diseases, for a total of 162 million cases. The total impact of these diseases on the economy is $1.3 trillion annually. Of this amount, lost productivity totals $1.1 trillion per year, while another $277 billion is spent annually on treatment. On our current path, in 2023 we project a 42 percent increase in cases of the seven chronic diseases. $4.2 trillion in treatment costs and lost economic output. Under a more optimistic scenario, assuming modest improvements in preventing and treating disease, we find that in 2023 we could avoid 40 million cases of chronic disease. We could reduce the economic impact of disease by 27 percent, or $1.1 trillion annually; we could increase the nation&apos;s GDP by $905 billion linked to productivity gains; we could also decrease treatment costs by $218 billion per year. Lower obesity rates alone could produce productivity gains of $254 billion and avoid $60 billion in treatment expenditures per year.
  • According to a 2009 report published in Health Affairs 54% of US firms (small and large) that offer health benefits offer a wellness program. The most common programs are gym memberships and web-based resources for healthy living.
  • A survey conducted by Buck Consultants in October 2008 found that line managers were “very involved”in the development of a wellness programme in only 5% of cases, while the HR or benefits staff were very involved in 78% of the cases. Enhanced Engagement &amp; Teamwork Positive Contributions Increased Productivity Peak Performance Improved Image Reduced Health Risks Controlled Costs
