Employee Wellness Solutions in Northcentral PA: Healthy Partners by UPMC Susquehanna
Everyone shares the expense of poor health. Over a five-year period, employee healthcare costs rose 45% and employer healthcare costs rose 36%, according to the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. On the other hand, a healthy work force is an economical work force. An economical work force means less sick time, less cost to insure, more productivity, and a better ability to attract potential employees.
Role of Wellness
Wellness programs significantly reduce these rising healthcare costs. According to the Harvard Business Review, for every dollar employers invest in wellness, they see an average savings of $2.71. Our Healthy Partners program focuses on doing just that – saving companies money on healthcare costs and improving the health of employees through implementing wellness programs.
As the primary healthcare provider in the community, it is in our best interest to provide wellness programs to raise awareness of the services we provide, so that we can improve the overall health of the community's population by maximizing healthcare utilization.
Healthcare costs continue to rise and are a burden on many employers and employees. Wellness programs reduce these costs and present a unique opportunity for us to work together to improve health and save money.
To measure the potential impact of a wellness program on an organization, we have spent the past several years putting our own organization to the test, successfully saving nearly $2.8 million over the course of five years. You can read more about the planning and implementation of our wellness program in our case study. We understand that, as an employer, you may not have the staff in place to plan and implement your own wellness program. Our goal is to be an extension of your company, to give you everything you need in implementing a wellness program, and to assist in improving your company's employee and fiscal health.
