Savvier Health, a corporate health empowerment company, its ongoing mission to improve the health, well-being and productivity of employees while simultaneously boosting the bottom line of their companies, has issued an intriguing guarantee to businesses. Savvier Health is so confident that its 60 minute physician-conducted ‘Maximum Medical Care, Minimum Medical Costs’ teleseminars will transform the lives of its participants it vows to repay companies twice their cost in select health-related products and services if they do not see a significant increase in employee productivity and fewer sick days within 6 months of the teleseminar.

The health-related products and services a company could qualify for as a reimbursement would be based on the company’s total investment in the teleseminars, but include services such as a complimentary customized corporate health and wellness Website for 1 year, including set up, design, and hosting, valued at several thousand of dollars. Savvier Health is so confident that its teleseminars will have such a dramatic impact on both the employees and their companies it can easily give such a substantial guarantee of its services.
“It’s really quite simple,” states A.M.Hester, M.D., company spokesperson. “We have traditionally had a very paternalistic health care system. Patients have never been taught how to partner in their health care to optimize their health while they lower their costs. You don’t have to be a health care professional to learn the fundamental ‘patient skills’ that can make the difference between successfully managing a chronic disease or suffering a devastating, life-altering outcome. Patients have far more untapped power than they realize. They can even help save their own lives in an emergency, unfortunately, most people just don’t know it yet.”
According to the most recent annual Employer Health Benefits study published by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Education Trust, health insurance premiums for family coverage have increased by 73% since 2000, compared to inflation growth (14%) and wage growth (15%). The study goes on to say that, on average, employers paid $4,024 for single coverage and $10,880 for family coverage in 2005.
In addition to the direct costs of illness, there the indirect ones. Harris, Rothenberg International estimates the full labor cost of absenteeism to be close to $250/day for an employee making $20K/yr, close to $500/day for an employee making $40K/yr, and over $1,000/day for an employee making $100K/yr.
Savvier Health’s teleseminars are very economical. Companies can sponsor several hundred teleseminar participants for the cost of one employee’s annual health benefits. Put another way, more than 30 participants could be trained by a board-certified physician to live longer, healthier, more productive lives while slashing health care costs for less than the company’s cost for 1 sick day for a single employee making $40K/yr.
It is easy to see how the ROI for businesses can be astronomical for Savvier Health’s teleseminars alone. Savvier Health also offers customized corporate health and wellness Web sites, in-house employee empowerment workshops (in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, Philadelphia, and New York City), customized employee wellness newsletters, medical record-keeping guides, and live Webinars. Visit http://savvierhealth.com for more details.
