Did you know that in Ontario, 44% of adults over 20 years old have at least one of ten common chronic diseases? Living and managing such a disease can be extremely difficult, and feeling in control of it can be a long process.
In 2015, in Ontario, chronic diseases were responsible for nearly 75% of deaths. And yet, many of these conditions are preventable. Cancers, cardiovascular diseases, chronic lower respiratory diseases, and diabetes represented an estimated annual direct healthcare cost of $10.5 billion.
Having a member or a client with a chronic disease also has hidden costs for you that take the form of absenteeism and disability. Novus Health has partnered with care coordination and chronic disease management experts, HealthCare 365, so you can offer your clients and members a new service designed to help them navigate the healthcare system, optimize care and most importantly, mitigate costs.
Your members will benefit from personalized ongoing hands-on support, coordination, and navigation for accessing healthcare related to their condition. In time, this will help you significantly reduce medical and care associated claims.
Our combined team of medical professionals:
- Cover current conditions and lifestyle concerns
- Monitor patient’s health status to address any emerging concerns
- Research and answer health-related questions
- Explain medical consultations and results
- Review current medications and supplements
- Remind patients of appointments and make suggestions for symptom management while awaiting specialist and hospital appointments
Boost client satisfaction while reducing the stress and anxiety of members, and employees.
