Pop Health Podcast - Preventative Care
Lightbeam Clinical Transformation Advisor, Christine DiNoia, BSN, RN, and Clinical Engagement Manager, Shelley Davis, MSN, RNC, CCM, join Laurel Derr on the Population Health Podcast discussing this month’s topic: preventative care. Projections by the CDC indicate that by 2030, more than 80 million people in the United States will have at least three chronic diseases. With the continuation of COVID, it is crucial to focus on getting patients in for preventative visits and screenings, as we have seen a considerable decline in both of these. The Health Cost Institute reported that in the last year, mammograms and pap smears were down 80%, and colonoscopies were down 90% compared to 2019.
