Certain populations can be difficult to reach in an attempt to expand the scope and effectiveness of healthcare in the United States. The reasons could be several – language differences, cost, rural locations, ingrained stereotypes, cultural perceptions of medicine, time, and lack of exposure to technology are just a few. Regardless of the cause, disease management programs have been shown to overcome these barriers and improve the health and well-being of a number minority groups.
Listen to HCPro for this 60-minute audioconference “Cultural Diversity and Disease Management: Improving care in ethnic populations.” Dr. Winston Wong, MD, MS and Brenda Schmidt, MS, MBA, diversity population-management experts, will use evidence-based examples to illustrate how your program can target groups with traditionally-high non-participation rates. Concepts such as the use of incentives, the importance of person-to-person contact, the importance of community healthcare, and other creative ideas will be among the strategies presented.
