Companies Pay a High Price for Employees With Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, According to Study From Thomson Reuters
Date:11/10/2008

University and Bristol-Myers Squibb, which funded the research.

"Employers and workers should continue to develop strategies to manage chronic illnesses that can generate significant costs for healthcare services and may affect productivity," said Teresa Gibson, director of health outcomes for the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters and lead author of the study.

In this case, absenteeism costs were not substantially higher for workers with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis than it was for the control group. However, patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis were somewhat less likely to participate in the workforce, with annual short term disability costs for both conditions exceeding controls by $1,000 per employee.

"These results emphasize the importance of early diagnosis and appropriate treatment to address the costs of disability and lost productivity to employees and employers," said co-author Wayne Burton, M.D., adjunct professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
