Total Health Management
A roof is maintained to avoid leaks down the road because it will cost far more to repair a leaky roof than to prevent a leak in the first place. It is recommended vehicles have the oil changed regularly to keep the engine running smoothly and avoid costly repairs in the future.
Managing health risks is sometimes overlooked. What would one disability cost your organization over the next 12 months? In absenteeism alone, it can be thousands. The only way to reduce health costs is to keep employees healthy, happy, and at work.
The total healthcare value equation is about more than just costs. Employee health is human capital and is a manageable asset. Worker productivity is the measure of success based on health promotion. It is a business issue, not just a health issue.
Our process is as follows:
- Pre-engagement planning/discovery – where is your organization currently?
- Strategic planning – where would your organization like to be?
- Employee-interest survey – what does your workforce value?
- Current culture – what does your culture encourage/discourage?
- Define initiatives supporting vision, goals, and objectives – which programs will work with your organization?
- Health score benchmarking – where is your highest claim risk?
- Incentive program design (incorporate with benefits) – what will motivate your team?
- Mobile health applications (incentives, reminders, and health plans) keep your employee’s health in the forefront.
- Incorporate a supportive workplace – what can you do to promote and sustain initiatives?
- Measure your return on investment – how is total health management making a difference in your bottom line?
