Valuable to entities looking to improve health plan and financial outcomes through employer-driven health and wellness program solutions

WESTLAKE, TX, July 24, 2018 – Advanced Plan for Health (APH), a provider of advanced and predictive data analytics technology today announced the publication of their latest eBook, Insights and Impacts: Employer-Driven, Analytics-Powered Health and Wellness Programs. The eBook is a comprehensive resource on research and best practices employers need to know to develop a health and wellness solution based on strong analytics to identify targets as well as to measure results.

Most employers know that their workforce is plagued by poor lifestyle choices and care decisions that diminish productivity and increase costs. Savings are very much needed to afford new expensive, lifesaving medicines and treatments, along with inevitable catastrophic cases that plague nearly every health plan. The first step toward changing this situation is defining the top problems a company faces, and then implementing strategies to optimize employee health and wellness, which will improve clinical and financial metrics to cushion costs of high dollar cases.

Proactive employers have created programs in the workplace to address general health and wellness, which may include biometrics, health risk assessments and some type of reward for participating in activities that improve health and functionality.  While that is a great start if well-executed, employers have learned that in order to truly move the needle they must step in and go the extra mile to ensure their employees and their families receive the care and support they need in their highest cost, highest risk areas (current state and predicted).

One of the greatest challenges of employer health and wellness program success is the ability, or lack thereof, to ensure that there is access to easy-to-use actionable health plan data and trends which enable them to step in and proactively bend the trend through targeted member intervention. To better control costs and worker productivity, many employers have turned to impactful advanced and predictive analytics-powered health and wellness program solutions that address fundamental wellness, chronic health conditions and diseases.

The new APH eBook shares details from research findings and extensive client work on controlling costs by implementing the key quality processes, ingredients, steps and measurements associated with successful health and wellness programs.
