AUDIOCONFERENCE OVERVIEW

In this audioconference you will learn about the fastest-growing, most transparent and valid measurement tool anywhere. Just introduced in 2008, there are almost four dozen health plans, employers and states using it already.

Why? Partly because it is free of charge. You will receive all the necessary tools as part of this audioconference - at no additional cost. And then, in the words of co-presenter Al Lewis, who can be googled as having invented disease management, you can measure outcomes "using ingredients you already have in your kitchen."

But mostly this methodology has become popular because it is more valid than pre-post. It answers some incredibly basic questions which you -- yes, you -- have no idea about. For instance, you've probably undertaken multiple initiatives to manage heart disease to reduce heart attacks...and yet you have no clue what your heart attack rate is, whether it is high or low relative to peers, and whether the rate (along with related events, like angina attacks) has declined since you initiated these programs. The same is true for asthma attacks, CHF fluid overload etc.

Further, you have no idea how much those adverse event rates must decline in order to earn a return on your investment.
