Helping Employees Help Themselves
Health Management programs help individuals realize that they are in control of their own health and should take serious note of how their current lifestyle choices may affect them in the future. The fact is that most people could add five to 10 years or more to their life expectancy by choosing to follow good health practices.
Health Management programs are both proactive and reactive, helping to achieve the following:
- Control costs through efficient disease-management programs
- Avoid costs by monitoring and educating pre-disease participants
- Create more health-conscious plan participants
Tangible benefits of a health-management program include a healthier, happier, and more productive workforce and the return on investment that can result when the costs of chronic diseases, including prescription drugs and surgeries, are lowered. These benefits and more are possible when employees participate in the following:
- On-site health screenings
- Health risk assessments
- Disease Management / Health Coaching
- Wellness Education Classes
Through the information gathered from the health screenings and health risk assessments, Physicians Care makes recommendations on how to best address the serious health risks that exist in your covered group.
All of these efforts are intended to engage and empower participants, help them be accountable for their health, and give them direction for living a healthier life.
