Elk Grove Village, IL – The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and health information company HCMS Group have updated their online calculator to include a new health condition.

Blueprint for Health provides employers with an estimate of the impact of medical costs, absences and work impairment among employees. First introduced in 2007, the tool has been expanded to include information on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Conditions such as hypertension and diabetes were already part of the tool.
