This session will show how you can become a much savvier shopper for wellness services and reader of wellness contracts and reports, and keep the worst-case scenario from happening to you. Examples will be shown by name (maybe your vendor or carrier is among the culprits or maybe they’ve flown under the radar screen). By attending this webinar you will know what to look for and how to avoid a possible career-ending move by buying a wellness program that can’t pass your CFO’s sniff test.

Learning Objectives:

In this session you will learn how to distinguish between real and fabricated wellness reports, and see examples of both, by names. In addition, there will be some interactive “pop quizzes” to help you identify phony metrics on your own.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

- Why wellness programs often if not usually overstate savings?
- How to calculate your own ROI from your own wellness programs using a “wellness savings calculator,” which is based on real data?
- Case studies in invalidity: Cigna, Health Fitness Corp., Wellmed and others.
- How to conduct a “plausibility test” on your population health management programs?
