Developed by leading clinical preventive medicine specialists, The Prevention Plan is proven to help reduce important health risks such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. A study of Prevention Plan members -- published in the peer-reviewed Population Health Management – showed significant improvements over a one-year period.
The goal of the study was to evaluate the impact of The Prevention Plan on health risks after one year of integrated primary (wellness and health promotion) and secondary (screening and early detection) prevention.
One important component of The Prevention Plan is the prioritizing of each member’s personal health risks. This study found that a significant number of members moved from a higher risk levels moving to lower risk level.
- 48.70% of individuals in the high-risk category moved to moderate risk
- 46.35% moved from moderate risk to low risk
- 15.65% moved from high risk to low risk
- 87.33% remained in the low risk category
Specifically, 15 health risk measures among the study group were analyzed and reassessed a year later. The group showed significant reduction in 10 of the risks measured, with the most noticeable reduction in the proportion of members with high-risk blood pressure (42.78%), high-risk fasting blood sugar (31.13%) and high-risk stress (24.94%).
