Any discussion of health improvement programs eventually gets around to one key point: Where's the ROI? And while the measurement of improvements in clinical outcomes is fairly straightforward, quantifying the impact of health and behavior change on healthcare utilization and medical costs is still a major challenge.

However, by relying on a combination of science and program evaluation methods, health improvement companies are getting closer to quantifying these results. Strategies for improving and measuring the clinical and economic effects of health coaching, disease management and other population health management efforts are detailed in Real ROI from Health Management: Cost Savings through Coaching and Disease Management, a new special report from the Healthcare Intelligence Network.

This 50-page report provides strategies, models and advice for achieving ROI from health improvement initiatives from the following thought leaders:

  • Ariel Linden, DrPh, M.S., president of Linden Consulting Group;
  • Craig Nelson, M.S., D.C., director of health services research with American Specialty Health;
  • Dexter Shurney, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., medical director, Employee Health and Care Plan of Vanderbilt University and Medical Center; and
  • Paul Terry, president and CEO of StayWell Health Management.

Based on their experiences with health improvement programs focused on nutrition, exercise, tobacco, medication adherence and more, these experts detail the measures to look at when evaluating health coaching and population health programs and provide case studies of how they are using these measures to demonstrate a health management ROI.
