The U.S. spends $3.8 trillion annually on healthcare expenditures, 90% of which is spent for people with chronic and mental health conditions. A staggering 60% of adults have at least one chronic disease and nearly 30% have three or more. Managing chronic conditions can also be challenging; the presence of multiple conditions magnifies utilization, costs, and vulnerability to complications.
Learn how AI can help HCOs to promote early diagnosis of chronic disease, mitigate the effects and progression of chronic conditions, and proactively avoid adverse events and complications. Discover how AI can help to identify undiagnosed patients, predict individuals at high-risk of disease progression, determine opportunities to improve chronic care management, and predict avoidable acute care utilization and other adverse events.
Data indicating the status of the body’s vital and life-sustaining functions, with core vital signs including blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate, and body temperature.
Data capturing the most important problems facing a patient, when it occurred and when it was resolved, and lists other illnesses, injuries and factors that affect their health.
Remote monitoring data capture key vital signs and health behaviors (e.g. blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose, activity levels, etc.).

The United States spends $3.8 trillion annually on healthcare expenditures, 90% of which is spent for people with chronic and mental health conditions.¹ Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are conditions that last one year or longer and require ongoing medical care, limit a person’s activities of daily living, or both.
A staggering 60% of adults have at least one chronic disease and nearly 30% have three or more.¹ Managing chronic conditions can be challenging. These conditions do not exist in isolation and frequently occur with other comorbidities. This is especially true for older adults—81% of older adults have at least two chronic conditions and 25% have five or more.²
The presence of multiple conditions magnifies utilization, costs, and the vulnerability to complications. Adults with three or more conditions are 3.6 times more likely to have an ED visit, 5.3 times more likely to be admitted, have 10 times higher healthcare costs, and fill 36 times more prescriptions than an adult without any conditions.² They are also 15–18 times more likely to experience physical and social limitations which can lead to functional decline, particularly for older adults, and significantly decrease their quality of life.³ As the population continues to age, the prevalence and impact of chronic diseases is expected to continue to grow.
Care management programs can mitigate the effects of chronic diseases, prevent adverse events, improve health outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs. Healthcare organizations (HCOs) can use AI to amplify the success of their programs. Predictive analytics enable HCOs to identify high-risk individuals and predict adverse events and potential complications. AI-driven insights also surface specific modifiable risk factors that may have otherwise gone undetected. With these insights, care teams can personalize care plans and improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
