Medicare Set Aside News - CDC Chronic Disease Indicators
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Offers Useful Tool for Self Insurers To Benchmark Their Cases and Programs.
The CDC's Chronic Disease Indicators (CDI) is a useful tool of 97 indicators that were developed to allow states, territories and large metropolitan areas to uniformly define, collect, and report chronic disease data that are important to public health practice. Self insurers can use these tools to benchmark their own data for insights and management.
CDI are divided into eight categories that represent a wide spectrum of conditions and risk factors as well as social context:
- Physical activity and nutrition
- Tobacco and alcohol use
- Cardiovascular disease
- Overarching conditions
- Other diseases and risk factors
