“It is easier and cheaper to prevent the onset of a disease than it is to treat it once the disease has developed.”
The Efficacy and Cost-Effectiveness of Integrative Medicine
To better inform those interested in the transformation of health care, Bravewell has released "The Efficacy and Cost-Effectiveness of Integrative Medicine."
This report summarizes the data supporting the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of an integrative approach to health care from three sources—medical research conducted at universities, studies carried out by corporations developing employee wellness programs, and pilot projects run by insurance companies.
The research reveals that immediate and significant health benefits and cost savings can be realized throughout our health care system by utilizing three integrative strategies:
- Integrative lifestyle change programs for those with chronic disease
- Integrative interventions for people experiencing depression
- Integrative preventive strategies to support wellness in all populations
