Today we are excited to announce a new tool for employers looking to quantify the reduction in health care costs that can result from a wellness program.
By visiting the “Measurable Results” section of incentaHEALTH.com, employers can enter the number of employees in their company and calculate how much the incentaHEALTH Wellness Program should save in reduced health care costs.
Employers can also enter the state with the largest concentration of employees to tailor the results to the specific percent overweight and obesity rates for their state.
The calculator combines national research data correlating body mass index (BMI) to levels of medical claims, absenteeism, and prescription drug usage. This data is then applied to the typical program performance experienced by clients using the incentaHEALTH program. By using the actual program engagement rates and measured reductions in BMI experienced by incentaHEALTH customers, we can estimate real-world reductions in health care costs. And since this outcomes data is measured by our patented HEALTHspot kiosk located in the workplace, we have moved beyond self-reported data and now have authenticated outcomes.
