Quote attributable to Melanie Matthews, HIN Executive VP and COO:
"This webinar offers participants the chance to learn from leading researchers and innovators in this area of population health management. Health risk assessments help identify high health risk candidates for health coaching and other risk-reduction interventions, but the integration of HRA results with other data can paint a more complete picture of an individual's health needs. Companies that invest in health risk assessment tools should see corresponding savings in medical claims, providing the high-risk individuals commit to proscribed wellness and disease management initiatives.."
