It Pays to Have a Healthy Workforce!

Make no mistake about it, wellness saves in more ways than one.

The evidence supporting health plan and employer sponsored health promotion and wellness incentive programs is getting stronger.

Programs launched in recent years are now coming to fruition; bearing promising clinical evidence and strong economic data to validate preventive health management and
wellness reward initiatives.

Sweetening the Pot!

Federal legislation is pending that will provide superior tax incentives to employers who offer wellness and healthy living programs to their employee populations. Thus, employers and health plans now have greater otivation than ever before to incorporate wellness reward and healthy living programs into their healthcare and productivity cost containment strategies.

Despite the promising outlook though, pertinent challenges abound, making it more vital then ever that wellness reward programs are properly designed to ensure optimal program
outcomes, financial results and HIPAA and ADA compliance.

In light of these challenges, Global Media Dynamics is pleased to present its first Wellness Rewards Congress; the only event designed specifically to provide actionable market information for both health plans and employers.

You’ll learn how to drive innovation and achieve progress with regard to:

• Next generation health promotion and wellness rewards programs
• Measuring and evaluating the clinical and economic impact of preventive health management and chronic care programs
• Innovative value-based benefit design strategies
• Proven success strategies to achieve maximum engagement and meaningful behavior change
