Containing Costs Through Improved Healthcare Experience
Onsite healthcare allows us to keep healthy people healthy and help those with risk factors or chronic conditions achieve their optimal health. Because each person is unique, we develop individual health coaching and maintenance plans.
The cost of healthcare drops significantly for the organization when employees have the tools they need to manage their own health. By keeping employees productive and healthy, you can mitigate the effects poor health has on the business's bottom line.
For example, we helped the City of Plantation, Florida, see improvements in 84 percent of at-risk patients in just seven years. As a result of our onsite health coaching and preventative care services, they saw a cumulative savings of $14.97 million.
Working with Patients at All Risk Levels
The key to population health management is working with all patients, not just medium and high-risk patients. Research done by Dr Dee Edington and the University of Michigan Health Management Research Center indicates that as employees move out of the medium and high-risk categories, others are already moving in. Our preventative services reduce patients' upward flow from low-risk to medium and high-risk.
Health Coaching and Risk Assessment
We take each employee through a confidential health risk assessment to understand lifestyle factors that might be affecting their health. Then, we perform a health screening that measures blood pressure, weight, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels to see if there is any indication of potential health risks, and to set a baseline for improvement. Through a combination of risk reduction coaching, chronic condition coaching, and individual or group education programs, we help people make long-lasting lifestyle changes that will preserve or improve their health status into the future.
