Health plans face the constant challenge to provide high quality benefits and programs that result in superior health outcomes for members at reasonable costs. The explosion of chronic illnesses like diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease have driven insurers to develop wellness and disease management approaches – through internal investment or outsourcing – that deliver cost effective results.

- Joslin Clinical Guidelines that serve as foundations for building various care pathways and education mechanism for diabetes, metabolic syndrome and related areas
- Risk stratification strategies and tools
- Patient registries
- Care management software for nurses
