Chronic conditions in patient populations are significant drivers of cost in the healthcare systems, driving 90% of the $3.5 trillion the US spends on healthcare annually1

60% of Americans suffer from a chronic condition, and 40% have 2 or more. The rate of Americans suffering from one or more chronic conditions rises to 80% for Americans over the age of 652. With many chronic conditions, early identification results in better patient outcomes.

Poor lifestyle choices result in risk factors which are highly correlated with the prevalence of these chronic conditions. These risk factors include:

  • tobacco use
  • poor nutrition
  • excessive alcohol use
  • lack of sufficient physical activity
