The new program will deliver a comprehensive support system that has a meaningful impact on the life of a person with diabetes and his/her health outcomes
Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
The new program, WellnessConnect for Diabetes℠, was developed with guidance from Lockton Companies and builds on Accountable Health Solutions’ DiabetesConnect℠ program which leverages the industry’s only cellular glucometer, combined with Accountable Health’s robust member engagement capabilities, proprietary clinical algorithms and robust data analytic capabilities and adds a custom incentive platform to help close gaps in provider care, including eye exams, provider visits, HbA1c testing and more.
Accountable Health has also teamed up with SurePoint Wellness for convenient home delivery of diabetes medications and supplies as well as for medication adherence tracking. With WellnessConnect for Diabetes employers can better address a chronic condition that drives $245 billion in annualized healthcare costs in the United States.
“We are thrilled to bring this innovative and game-changing solution to the market,” said Kailin Carroll Alberti, Senior Vice President of Health & Wellness Solutions for Accountable Health Solutions. “The new program will deliver a comprehensive support system that has a meaningful impact on the life of a person with diabetes and his/her health outcomes.”
WellnessConnect reaches all members with diabetes, not just those identified as “high cost claimants.” The approach empowers members by using technology and personalized engagement that actively involves them in the management of their health. Employers also can offer diabetes-specific incentives to drive appropriate care.
“We look forward to being a part of the WellnessConnect solution, delivering an end-to-end solution for employers that will create a comprehensive benefit for individuals with diabetes,” says Gordon Roll, CEO of SurePoint Wellness.
“What is so unique about the WellnessConnect program is that it not only leverages cutting-edge technology and engagement tools but also encourages a strong doctor–patient relationship and development of a patient home through its smart incentive design and data sharing,” comments Rich Allen, Director of Health Risk Solutions at Lockton Dunning Benefits. “Managing the diabetic population continues to be a struggle for employer groups and, based on our expertise and experience in this space, we are confident that WellnessConnect for Diabetes will provide an effective solution to manage the disease’s escalating costs.”
The program is designed to lower employee health plan claims costs, improve worker productivity and increase provider engagement. This all occurs while the employer is able to offer a rich and effective benefit to its members.
