APH Counterpoints to Recent Workplace Wellness Study Findings

As our leadership team read the recent uChicago News article titled “Workplace wellness programs fail to improve health, study finds,” we felt compelled to share our counterpoints based on decades of experience supporting wellness and well-being programs that do drive quantifiable and significant results.

There are so many definitions of "workplace wellness" that we hope people won't over-generalize after seeing this article and study. Our clients are experiencing strong, measurable health and wellness program results due to analytics-driven proactive outreach and support.

Influence on Lifestyle Change Does Have an Impact on Outcomes

Once populations are targeted for support and intervention via our Poindexter advanced and predictive analytics (via current state and predicted risk factors), we’ve found that one of the most effective ways to support targeted employees and members is through live or telephonic nurse influence and intervention.

Nurses are able to deliver individuals the education and support they need to make important lifestyle and preventative care changes. This is one of the most effective programs that we’ve seen in delivering needed outcomes.

The Self-Insured Employer: By The Numbers

The further we venture into our modern healthcare system, it becomes more apparent that the self-insured employer understands their potential to slash healthcare costs by creating and effectively implementing custom population health management programs. This is not so surprising of a trend, considering that health policy architects designed the Affordable Care Act and quality-based reimbursement initiatives to stem rising healthcare costs through population health management, as we reported in our ebook, "The New Broker."

How The New Broker Can Take The Lead With Predictive Modeling

Data analytics is the current and most effective means to achieving population health management, but let’s face it: To many employers, population health management is merely a health-benefits catchphrase, an empty expression that represents a goal but lacks the means to achieve it. However, in the right hands, data analysis is much more than that. Data analysis gives brokers the edge to fulfill population health management goals by providing common-sense human interactions to take action on the steps identified for plan performance.

Weighing Wellness with Poindexter

In the advent of Big Data and Predictive Analytics, a time when it is becoming more expensive to remain neutral in regards to company health improvement, 60% of corporations  are attempting to implement effective, cost reductive wellness programs. Does this mean all 60% percent of these companies are experiencing improved ROI and a lower bottom line? Perhaps the easiest way to answer that question is to ask another; does everyone fulfill their New Years’ resolution?
