Models for Change Conference

Why focus on behavior?

  • More than 75% of health care costs are due to chronic conditions.
  • Chronic diseases are the most preventable, by behavior change and self-management.
  • There is increasing need to reduce costs and improve access to health care as the demographic bulge of the baby boomers add to demand.
  • As difficult as it will be for health care organizations to make changes to the health care system, the most important and most difficult will be for patients and consumers to change their lifestyle and self-management behaviors.
  • The key to success is understanding what drives adoption and persistent use
