Several recent articles highlight the rapid expansion of the chronic disease management market over the next 6-10 years. With a Medicare population that is expected to grow from 44 million today to 79 million by 2030, the need for comprehensive chronic disease management programs has never been more prevalent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 90% of the nation’s $3.5 trillion in annual healthcare expenditures can be attributed to people with chronic and mental health conditions. Obesity alone affects one in three adults and costs the US healthcare system $147 billion a year.
