Taking chronic disease in a better and different direction! 

"Disease Management" programs aren't effective, neither are generic, run-of-the-mill wellness programs.

You need programs that understand the problem and are dedicated to fixing it.  

ONLINE

Completely online. All that is needed is an internet connection and The Academy can be taken from anywhere in the world. 

PRESENTATIONS

On-site, interactive presentations of our 12-module curriculm in The Academy

HIGH-IMPACT COACHING

Some people need more help. This is our most effective version of The Academy. 

Where we excel…

From most perspectives, the current state of chronic disease is terrible – from the incidence and prevalence to the treatment and costs. The picture is not rosy. There are many reasons why, but fundamentally, the approach to treatment targets a symptom – it’s really nothing more than disease management paraded around as healthcare. Prevention and/or wellness aren’t much better. We try to fit a square peg into a round hole and then blame the end-user for not following directions. 

We have a somewhat different approach – focusing on and fixing the problem. 

FIXING THE PROBLEMS

Chronic disease is the main driver in year-to-year costs for health plans. The pool of diagnosed always grows, never shrinks. So your expenses always increase. The approach to fixing this problem isn’t effective, so nothing really changes. 

TYPE 2 DIABETES

This is the most expensive condition to have and to treat. EVERY organization should be focused on this problem! We are very successful at fixing the problem of insulin resistance and helping people get off of most (if not all) of their medications. 

HIGH CHOLESTEROL

Whatever your organization is spending on cholesterol medication, that amount is increasing. And it’s increasing for two reasons: 1) The criterion for putting someone on a statin has gone from 220 to 200, increasing the pool tremendously; and 2) People follow a poor lifestyle, which leads to elevated cholesterol. This is a double-whammy! 

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Most organizations we work with aren’t too concerned with high blood pressure, because it’s relatively inexpensive to control with generic prescription medication. This is a bad perspective to have. The long-term risk for kidney problems doesn’t just disappear, which means the longer someone is hypertensive (even controlled with medication) the greater their risk of costly kidney related problems. 

CASE STUDY

Blue collar manufacturing

A group with nearly 800 employees with just over 500 on a self-insured plan was spending nearly $700,000 per year on three different type 2 diabetes drugs – Insulin (all forms), Invokana and Januvia.

DEMOGRAPHICS

58% male, obese (34 BMI) and nearly two chronic conditions per person. 

IMPLEMENTING THE ACADEMY

A little more than 200 went through either the presentations or 1-on-1 coaching version of The Academy over a 15-month period. 

OUTCOMES – 67% decrease in spend

Before implementing The Academy, monthly expenses for these drugs combined was nearly $60,000, when we finished, it was about $20,000!  

$2.50 ROI

Implementing The Academy was an investment of about $185,000. Their savings were $469,000, which translates into an ROI of $2.50!
