November is American Diabetes Month
The statistics are staggering. Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabe-tes. Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Additionally, people with diabetes are nearly twice as likely to be hospitalized for a heart attack or stroke. More than half of all amputations in adults occur in people with diabetes. About 60-70 per-cent of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nerve damage that could result in pain in the feet or hands, slowed digestion, sexual dysfunction and other nerve problems.
Healthchoice currently has 1,473 members with a diagnosis of diabetes out of the approximately 23,000 lives covered. To address this growing public health concern, Healthchoice has a Diabetes Health Management program that is available to all Healthchoice diabetic members free of charge. The goal of the program is to address member concerns about managing their diabetes and to pro-vide additional support when needed. A nurse care manager will discuss several topics with the member by phone including carb counting, continuum of care for diabetes, exercise and medica-tions.
To enroll in our Diabetes Health Management program, please call 1- 800-635-4345 X7155. Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:30pm. You may also visit our website at www.healthchoiceorlando.org and complete the Program Inquiry form found under the Orlando Health Team Members or Members Tab. Click here to read more.
2014 Flu Shot Campaign
Orlando Health’s annual flu vaccine campaign began on October 20, 2014. Flu shots are available free of charge to all team members and may be obtained at Occupational Health and other convenient locations throughout the organization. More information is available on the Occupational Health site on SWIFT.
All team members are required to complete a flu vaccine form to document if they are receiving or actively declining this year’s seasonal flu shot.
The seasonal influenza vaccine provides the best protection available from seasonal flu. Vaccination can decrease illness severity, which is particularly important for healthcare workers who may be at higher risk of contracting and spreading the flu due to close contact with patients and guests.
Please note, if a team member is ill with an influenza-like illness, he/she should stay at home so as to not spread the illness to patients or co-workers.Click here to read more.
