Improving Health, Controlling Costs
It’s no mystery what employers are seeking from their health plans: cost control and improved employee health. We help health plans make progress on these efforts with disease and case management, wellness programs and a host of online and print member educational resources. Often, these types of programs are tailored to behavioral deficits — eating too few vegetables and fruit, not taking medications as prescribed, lacking exercise, as revealed by health assessments and claim data. This approach lacks an empirically derived understanding of the underlying self-management competencies that are driving poor behaviors and escalating healthcare costs. The Patient Activation Measure® assessment takes member support and education a major step forward by revealing the competency-based drivers of these deficits, and allowing resources to be tailored to each member’s level of activation.
