Carlstadt, NJ (PRWEB) April 19, 2005
IncentOne, a provider of award-winning incentive solutions, announced a partnership today with Phoenix Care Management. Mobile, AL-based Phoenix Care Management specializes in assisting clients to constrain healthcare costs through disease and utilization management. The partnership will combine IncentOneÂs EMPLOYEE POWERÂ platform Â the first integrated incentive solution designed specifically for corporate wellness and healthcare cost reduction programs - with Phoenix Care ManagementÂs leading edge disease management program.
EMPLOYEE POWER combines IncentOneÂs proven incentive management system with its industry leading reward portfolio to specifically target wellness and healthcare cost reduction programs. EMPLOYEE POWER will enable Phoenix Care Management to offer increasingly complete disease management programs to their clients.
ÂWhen we think of critical business objectives, none are more prominent with senior management than healthcare costs,Â according to Michael Dermer President and CEO of IncentOne. Dermer goes on to state, ÂIncentives can be a critical tool for influencing employees to make positive healthcare decisions. When we saw how Phoenix Care Management focused on helping clients contain those costs, we knew that EMPLOYEE POWER would be the perfect compliment to their offering.Â
ÂDue to the obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and smoking components of our population, the US populationÂs healthcare costs have grown exponentially,Â says Richard T. Shell, President of Phoenix Care Management. ÂWe have partnered with IncentOne to create the incentive program for individuals to reward a healthier lifestyle. Through this partnership, we expect to reduce our clientsÂ medical claims cost by 20%.Â
EMPLOYEE POWER enables companies to drive specific behaviors that reduce healthcare costs for employers via incentives, and the ability to organize, manage and track all program activities. When combined with Phoenix Care ManagementÂs disease management services that identify specific diagnoses, IncentOne and Phoenix Care Management provide a powerful tool to drive cost reductions. Using EMPLOYEE POWER, managers issue incentive awards to individuals and teams for achieving healthcare objectives, and employees redeem those awards for the rewards of their choice from IncentOneÂs reward portfolio of gift certificates and gift cards from hundreds of national retailers, thousands of brand-name merchandise items, award-winning travel packages, and personal services.
IncentOneÂs EMPLOYEE POWER is provided directly to employers as well as to health industry partners such as insurers, brokers, wellness companies, benefits providers and administrators through its Partner Program. Phoenix Care Management provides utilization management industry services to Third Party Administrators for their clients, and has developed a Claims Analysis System to help identify individuals that can participate in a voluntary program to help achieve a healthier lifestyle.
