Predictive Risk Assessment in Employee Health Management for Utah Businesses
Historically, the Western model of health care has focused on secondary and tertiary treatment — or treatment rendered in response to symptoms that have already presented. However, research tells us that comprehensive preventive primary care helps patients avoid many types of acute and chronic illnesses.
Predictive personal health risk assessment, when incorporated as a part of primary care efforts, can identify those chronic illnesses a patient is prone to developing within three to five years. Early diagnosis allows the patient to work closely with their physician to take necessary steps, including lifestyle changes, that can help mitigate potential outcomes.
Focus on Patient-Centered Care, Wellness & Assistance Programs
Patient-centered primary care services focus on preventive strategies that keep employees and their families healthy. This approach to care delivery also helps manage chronic illness more effectively while reducing health care costs.
With the implementation of effective wellness coaching and employee assistance programs (EAPs), your employees will take greater responsibility for their health, making proactive behavior changes that can transform their lives.
We have also found that, depending on the size of your employee population, establishing on-site or near-site clinics can transform the health care experience and outcomes while reducing your benefits costs. This is an appealing benefit for attracting and retaining talent that also reduces employee time away for doctor visits.
