DALLAS, Feb. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthMine, Inc., the consumer engagement technology company that developed the industry's first and only Personal Clinical Engagement (PCE) platform, announced that it has just released a whitepaper on how to strengthen corporate wellness programs by creating sustainable consumer engagement. It reveals that Personal Clinical Engagement (PCE) is key.
Titled "Strengthen Health and Wellness Programs," the new HealthMine whitepaper shows that most consumers disengage from their employer-, insurance- or third party-sponsored wellness programs because they do not receive timely, clinical, or personalized information to help them manage their health. These programs often focus on "lifestyle management" and hype distributions of activity tracking devices. But without connecting activity information to comprehensive health data--including biometrics, medical claims, and insurance benefits--health and wellness programs might as well be throwing employer dollars in the garbage.
When individuals aren't given the big picture to understand how their daily actions make a difference in their overall health, they lose interest in their wellness program and disengage. To deliver value for an organization and its members, a wellness program must be utilized continuously. Sustainable engagement happens when a wellness program has four key attributes:
- Clinically comprehensive data—including both lifestyle and disease management information and tools.
- Personally relevant recommendations—including both health goals and actions for preventive care, condition-specific care, medication adherence and healthy lifestyle.
- Seamless integration with benefits—including automatic access to deductible status, out-of-pocket tabs, and pricing visibility.
- Automatic accessibility anytime, anywhere—with availability on any device in a single, friendly user interface.
When individuals are engaged sustainably in wellness plans, they set, monitor and measure progress toward health goals, and lower their healthcare costs.
The HealthMine Whitepaper: Building Stronger Corporate Health and Wellness Programs is available for download today.
