MANASQUAN, N.J. — There is an ongoing controversy surrounding return-on-investment (ROI) of disease management programs is calculated. Historically there's been a high level of difficulty measuring the financial impact of DM programs because of unclear parameters.  To make matter worse, changes in health costs over time cannot necessarily be attributed to just one cause.

What are the true cost savings of specific disease management programs? And what is the best way to calculate the ROI of your DM programs? Is there a standardized methodology for evaluating programs? Do you need to examine only healthcare cost savings or the impact on the patient’s day-to-day functioning, absenteeism and overall productivity?

Join the Managed Care Information Center and experts on disease management analysis for a discussion about disease management and ROI in the special 90-minute audio conference, "Disease Management ROI: Benchmarks, Metrics, and Case Studies for Success," scheduled for Thursday, May 3, 2007 at 1:30 PM Eastern Time.
