Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
FusionHealth, the leading provider of innovative cloud-based solutions that change the way businesses think about health management, today announced that it will be presenting at the Institute for Healthcare Consumerism’s FORUM East Conference at the Cobb Galleria Center in Atlanta, Georgia. FusionHealth is a Silver Sponsor this year of the "Making Healthcare Consumerism Work" Conference. The IHC is dedicated to innovative health and benefit management for health and benefits professionals from employers, brokers and health plan providers.
Dr. Parina Shah, the medical director at FusionHealth will be a featured speaker at the conference. Dr. Shah, along with Chelle Pfiffner, VP Strategic Employer Solutions at FusionHealth will present “The Economics of Healthy Sleep” to conference attendees. Together they will discuss the importance of healthy sleep and the growing, high prevalence of a variety of sleep disorders. These disorders, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, are linked to many chronic health problems. With the cost of treating sleep disorders and the associated medical problems so high, proactive treatment of these chronic conditions through the use of technology to enhance compliance with prescribed therapy can help employers and health plans dramatically reduce costs.
