A recent survey finds almost 42 percent of businesss with 200 or fewer staff have some sort of disease management program.
That’s a enormous increase from four years ago, when just 28% of smaller employers offered such wellness programs.
There’s more to come, too. Fifteen percent of respondents that didn’t currently have a disease management component to their medical plan hope to add one by 2011.
The highest-demand disease management programs are for diabetes, asthma and heart disease.
