U.S. Preventive Medicine Views Bernanke's Comments as Strong Support for Prevention and Wellness Programs
Date:6/19/2008

DALLAS, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke's comments this week that improving the performance of the U.S. health care system is one of the biggest challenges facing the nation, plus a new study that shows employer health care costs will rise nearly 10 percent this year, lend strong support to the growing need for a greater emphasis on prevention and wellness, according to U.S. Preventive Medicine, the leader in disease prevention.

Speaking to a Senate panel, Bernanke said the greatest health care challenges fall into three categories: improving access to health care; bolstering the quality of care; and controlling rising costs. Bernanke's comments this week came as PricewaterhouseCoopers released a study predicting that medical costs for employers will increase nearly ten percent both this year and in 2009.

"We fully agree with Mr. Bernanke's comments, which clearly raise the need to integrate prevention, early detection and comprehensive disease management into our health care system," said Christopher T. Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. "As the world's leader in prevention, we recognize that the solution to the health care crisis is complex, but these pieces are proven to work and should be immediately integrated into all employer, consumer and government health programs, not only in the United States but worldwide."
