CDPHP Honored for Best Disease Management Program in Upstate New York

Cited as Most Effective Disease Management Program for Fourth Consecutive Year

Albany, N.Y. (Vocus) October 2, 2009 -- For the fourth consecutive year, CDPHP® has been recognized for offering the best disease management program in upstate New York by Health Industries Research Companies (HIRC), a national, independent research organization serving the health care industry. CDPHP was the only health plan in the Capital Region to receive this award, with no other health plans north of New York City or east of Buffalo recognized. Fewer than six percent of U.S. health plans profiled in the report are honored consecutively.

"As a health value plan dedicated to the pursuit of wellness for its members, CDPHP is honored to be recognized alongside some of the nation's leading health plans for its disease management efforts," said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. "We are committed to seeking ways to assist our members--across all product lines--in managing their medical conditions."

HIRC's Ninth Annual Report on the Disease Management Industry profiles the leading disease management organizations (DMOs), assesses their growth trends, indicates their current partnerships, provides recommendations for future opportunities, and recognizes best current programs among health plans, employers, and vendors.

The HIRC report is based on extensive market projections and analysis, surveys, and in-depth interviews with health care industry executives. Report highlights include:

  • Current Disease Management Market Size
  • Disease Management Market Potential By Payer
  • Payers Implementing Disease Management
  • Patient-Centered Medical Home
  • Medicaid
  • Employer Programs
  • Patient Stratification and Outcomes
  • Wellness
  • DMO Partnerships with Commercial HMOs
  • DMO Services and Offerings
  • What HMOs Are Saying About DMOs
  • Recommendations
A Leader in Disease Management
With this latest honor, CDPHP also remains the only health plan in the region that holds three distinct disease management honors:
