Wellness Program Highlights

Over the past 12 months, there are a few stand out statistics that capture the success of our wellness efforts. Across our entire workforce, we’ve seen total population health risks decrese by 79% (at risk and high risk). Additionally, due to the positive efforts in our diabetic population to close gaps in their care and maintain regualr wellness visits, we’ve made note of a decrease of $374 PMPM; a total difference of $4,016,760 per year.

Most Proud of ...

We have truly changed the culture at Harris Health. Employees are regularly seen in walking meetings and also walking during breaks. Also, people are requesting more healthy options in our cafeterias and our participation in wellness programs continues to increase significantly year over year. We have a variety of programs and resources that meet the diverse needs of our employees and their families. One highlight is our Livongo™ Diabetes Management Program. Diabetes can be such a challenging and disabling condition if left unmanaged. The clinical results we have seen with this program have been remarkable and the feedback we have received from participants is overwhelmingly positive.
