Healthentic is announcing the official launch of the Wellness Decision Engine, on February 19th, 2013. For the first time, employers can combine their Medical, Dental and Pharmacy claims data to not only create an accurate picture of their employees’ health but also be prepared to act with wellness programs that fit their specific needs. HRA, Biometrics, and productivity data can also be integrated into these reports.
The Wellness Decision Engine is unique in its approach. Instead of merely reporting on claims, it is designed to look at the whole health of employees. It is able to match individual medical, dental and pharmacy claims to create a holistic view of an employee. The mountains of claims data are then distilled to their essence and combined with others in the group to provide a clear view into the biggest health challenges an organization faces.
Armed with specific information, the Wellness Decision Engine recommends proven wellness programs that address an organizations health needs. By using data, the real problems affecting a specific company’s employees are identified making allocating wellness budgets logical instead of simply guessing where problems might lie.
The Wellness Decision engine was created over a two year period with insights gleaned from over 150 interviews with Benefits Managers from around the United States. By thoroughly understanding the biggest challenges faced by industry professionals, Healthentic set out to tackle these issues with scientific rigor.
One of the biggest challenges in establishing a wellness program is getting executive buy-in. Until now, proving the case for return on investment for wellness has been largely anecdotal and not backed by hard data. The Wellness Decision Engine creates executive reports that can prove the case using actual data and describing the potential health care savings to the organization.
Another unique benefit of the Wellness Decision Engine is its ability to track results over time. By first establishing a baseline of a company’s health, a company can determine which conditions are improving and which are getting worse. The ability to track the effectiveness of wellness programs over time and the ability to redirect wellness dollars to new health challenges that arise is unique to the Wellness Decision Engine.
