Healthcare costs in the U.S. are continuing to skyrocket and employers are assuming the largest portion of the bill.
Recent research shows the greatest cost to employers is due to lower productivity and higher absenteeism from preventable disease. Lifestyle related chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes are responsible for three-fourths of health care spending. Identifying individuals with metabolic risks, such as obesity and elevated blood pressure, is the first step toward developing a comprehensive preventive program.
Based on your company's risk analysis, modest investments in health and wellness programs will result in significant savings. Strategies focused on lifestyle behavior changes have been shown to yield a solid return on investment for each dollar invested.
