How We Work

Building a Culture of Well One Best Practice at a Time

Our wellness consultants can provide guidance and best practices for the following:

Phase 1 – Discovery:  We begin by determining your readiness for wellness programming and collecting preliminary data.  We evaluate your environment, culture, and health risks, as well as identification of barriers to success.

Phase 2 – Goals & Programs:  Next we outline goals and objectives for wellness programming and health-improvement strategies. Programs and services are then developed to positively influence health-related behaviors.  We also can provide consulting on worksite health policies.

Phase 3 – Effective Elements of Implementation:  We help build leadership support for establishing a culture of health, as well as effective and legal incentive programs that reward participants for engaging in their healthcare.  We also assist with creating and implementing an effective marketing plan to promote your wellness programs.

Phase 4 – Measurement:  We help implement a process for ongoing evaluation with data collection tools, including reporting to key stakeholders. One of the more important steps is to put legal strategies in place that can identify individual and population health risks.  Once the high-risk members are identified, strategies are implemented to ensure these individuals have access to effective medical management and care coordination. 

The end goal?  Lowering your health costs while improving the health conditions of those who need it most.
