The growth and market adoption of consumer-driven healthcare continues to drive health plans and employers to develop more widespread member and employee health improvement initiatives.

Workplace Wellness Case Studies: Tactics To Promote Health and Reduce Risk looks at what’s working in health plan wellness and health promotion programs—award-winning and unique efforts, best practices, ROI, and lessons learned.

Starting with case studies of health improvement innovations in place at three national health plans, this 111-page report then delves into two parallel tactics that are gaining ground among employers: pitting departments against each other in a friendly competition for the healthiest workers and rewarding employees for healthy lifestyle choices. Both the game plan for healthy workplace competition and a profusion of winning ideas for incentives are profiled here.

You’ll get case studies from some of the pioneers in wellness programming, including American Cast Iron Pipe Company, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Alliance Plan, HealthPartners, Meridian Health System, Texas Health Resources and Washoe County School District.

You'll get details on:

  • Analyzing the outcomes for a program run by Highmark to reverse heart disease;
  • Forming a winning wellness team;
  • Designing incentives to increase wellness program participation;
  • Evaluating the payback on wellness programs;
  • Targeting your marketing to multiple audiences;
  • Using health coaches in wellness programs; and
  • Ensuring your wellness program's compliance with HIPAA.
