Webinar Description

Research shows employees who have a primary care physician and work with them on prevention have lower costs and better health outcomes. So why is the employee’s doctor missing from almost all employee health promotion programs?

In this session, we’ll review the research showing the benefits of having a primary care physician and working with them every year on prevention. Then we’ll look at the historical reasons why wellness programs did not interface with the physician. We’ll review the changes under the Affordable Care Act that are making it practical for employee wellness programs to include the employee’s doctor as a key team member. And, we’ll give examples of proven ways for employee wellness programs to work with physicians and collect data that they are missing today. Finally, we’ll show how the improved data from the doctor’s office allows for new ideas in program and incentive design.

Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • explain the improvements in health outcomes and reductions in healthcare costs when an employee has a primary care physician and works with them annually on prevention.

  • explain the components of an Annual Preventive Visit under the Affordable Care Act, and distinguish it from a worksite biometric screening.

  • implement a simple, paper and fax-based approach to collecting data from Annual Preventive Visits and Follow-Up Visits, to use within their wellness program.
