WASHINGTON DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE(TM) -- APRIL 7, 2006: Quality and value, together, are the yardstick today for disease and care coordination programs, a reality reflected in the theme for this year's Disease Management Leadership Forum, "Raising the Bar: Delivering Health Care Value." Never before has it been more important to demonstrate to payers, public and private, that disease management improves lives and saves money.

  • Scientific and general poster presentations;
  • Pacesetters Series, introducing new products from the disease and care coordination community's most progressive companies; and
