Screen for Chronic Conditions
Whether you are a doctor, insurer, public health official or disease management organization, gaining a heightened awareness of individuals with chronic health conditions is always a worthwhile goal.
Until now, the only way to identify those who might benefit from medical treatments, new drugs or improved education was to analyze claims data that is sometimes not available until 6 to 12 months after a claim arrives. The problem with this is that time is of the essence. The sooner you can identify someone with diabetes, asthma, COPD and other conditions, the sooner you can help.
The Optum SF-12v2® and SF-8™ Health Surveys are perfect for measuring population health. They identify people at risk for a variety of chronic conditions, both at present and in the future. Additionally, these surveys can measure disease burden in select populations.
The benefits of using our health surveys are far-reaching. When you make patients aware that they are at risk for a chronic condition, they can get the help, information or treatment they need.
