Health risk management provides employers with baseline qualitative and quantitative employee health information for developing worksite disease management and treatment programs.

Confidentiality of individual employee health information is prioritized, and employers only receive an analysis of the aggregate data. This information can then be used to develop relevant worksite incentives and communication materials to best keep employees healthy and happy.

A health risk management strategy tailored to the needs of your organization could include employer health opportunity assessments, health screening programs, health coaching programs, and more. Health risk management is an important element in workplace risk reduction programs and strategies. Contact us to learn more about how health risk management can help your organization lower benefits costs while improving employee satisfaction.

Why consider health risk management?

The Health Policy Institute at Georgetown University provides an excellent synopsis of the motivation for health risk management:

“People with chronic conditions generally use more health care services, including physician visits, hospital care, and prescription drugs… Disease management programs are designed to improve the health of persons with specific chronic conditions and to reduce health care service use and costs associated with avoidable complications, such as emergency room visits and hospitalizations… Substantial reductions in health care service use and expenditures have occurred for many individuals enrolled in disease management programs.”
