Employee Health Management Comes Of Age

As employee wellness programs have shifted from “nice to have” to “need to have,” employers have adjusted their views of what constitutes true employee health engagement. Defining engagement as mere participation is out. Engagement in health (rather than simply with program resources) is in. And designing rewards programs to reflect strategic goals is on.

As employers continue to encourage employees down the path to increased responsibility for health and healthcare, will expectations of wellness programs and predictors of engagement continue to shift as well?

Impact of Choice-Based Design on Population Health

RedBrick Health’s large-scale, two-year study followed over 180,000 participants to explore the impact of choice on health outcomes. The study analyzed six risk areas, including professionally collected biometrics and health habits.

Findings reinforce the effectiveness of the RedBrick consumer-centric model: When consumers were allowed to choose their health focus and modality (with data-driven guidance), they achieved clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvements at almost identical rates regardless of intervention modality.

The Financial Impact of RedBrick Health Study

The wellbeing of an organization’s employee population plays a significant role in the health of a company’s bottom line. Improving the health of employees can have a significant impact on an organization’s financial success through health care claims savings and increased productivity. Demonstrated financial savings are an important outcome of a well-executed health and wellness program. Given the imperative to demonstrate financial savings, RedBrick Health conducted a book-of-business study.

This study examined the financial impact of RedBrick Health programs on two commonly measured financial outcomes, health care expenditures and health related productivity loss.
