In order to appropriately respond to the increasing burden of healthcare costs employers must move beyond traditional health promotion and move toward a whole-person model of wellness. Evidence-based strategies of well-being and population health management can drive better health and greater value. Employers are implementing these innovative and transformative initiatives based on key metrics gleaned from health risk assessment and claims data analysis, which yield a blueprint for action that includes a Return on Investment (ROI) as well as the full Value of Investment (VOI) outcome measures.
Stress has emerged as one of the most ubiquitous toxic exposures in the workplace and is leading to impaired employee performance, burnout, and stress related illnesses.
This presentation will highlight evidence-based well-being/population health management strategies delivered by U.S. Preventive Medicine (USPM) and Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute (CCWI) that have generated compelling published outcomes—with a key focus on the highly impactful stress reduction/resiliency training program delivered by the Cleveland Clinic.
Following this presentation, participants will be able to:
- identify the key trends that are advancing the Value of Health in evidence-based well-being/population health management initiatives.
understand how comprehensive evidenced-based well-being/population health management initiatives drive enhanced workforce engagement, performance, and cost reductions.
delineate the profound impact of culturally specific, evidenced-based stress reduction/resiliency training programs with long-term outcomes on employee populations.
