Did You Know?
- Individuals with multiple metabloc risk factors are three times as likely to have a heart attack or stroke1
- The presence of multiple metabolic risk factors is thought to be one of the drivers of the growing problem of diabetes and cardiovascular disease1
- It is estimated that nearly 25% of the U.S. population suffers from the presence of multiple metabolic risk factors2
Telligen offers a unique program to address members with metabolic risk factors. We identify and work with members who are currently in a “pre” disease state to prevent them from moving to a disease state. Through education support and coaching tailored to the member’s specific risk factors, Telligen’s coaches work to slow the progression toward a disease state.
The Data Identified At-Risk Program works with members who are not typically supported by disease management programs today and need more intensive coaching than what wellness programming provides. Our evidence-based coaching teaches healthy behaviors and how to sustain them to lead to a healthier workforce and potential avoidance of high medical costs.
