With the uncertainty regarding the future of the Health Care System, physicians and private practices are looking for solutions during these fearful and uncertain economic times. Fortunately, there is a new cash-based model that doctors are implementing that can have both a positive financial outcome for health systems while providing a solution to rising health care costs by reducing obesity.
The obesity epidemic and the incidence of disease and injury have forced the need for a preventable, medically integrated, outcome-based model of medical fitness. Today’s crisis leads to a new spectrum that will combat rising health care costs and lower reimbursements and bridge the gap between traditional treatments and long-term prevention.
In 2018, CMS will be releasing the Diabetes Prevention Program aimed at adding wellness and preventative services to help combat the rising cost of health care and as a solution to manage and prevent chronic disease. It’s my focus along with several other affiliations such as the Medical Fitness Association to help bridge the gap between traditional treatments and long-term prevention.
Inside this presentation I will equip fitness and wellness professionals a consistent and predictable system that will help them get into a successful medical fitness career.
