Why Progressive Wellness
Despite the ability of an effective wellness program to reduce healthcare expenses, it has been shown that only 18% of those employees enrolled actually use the wellness program effectively. This is due to lack of individual programs. Just like our logo, a person’s fingerprint is unique to that individual. Similarly, each individual’s health and lifestyle are unique. Current wellness programs lack the individuality required to positively impact all members, both in the short and long term.
An effective and sustainable wellness program cannot be one size fits all. Each person is an individual with individual needs to overcome obstacles to health and wellness. Other wellness programs do not take an active role in each person’s goals. Progressive Wellness (PW) develops unique programs for our members.
Creating Habits for Wellness
The coach will hold weekly meetings via online conferencing, that will be focused on providing the necessary information to the employee. These meetings are the behavioral change and habit instilling the characteristics of the wellness and preventative program. The coach is dedicated to both the employee and management and responsibly ensures that the employee completes the four-month program.
Our incentive program reduces risk factors associated with our member’s overall health characteristics and engages members in behavior change. To drive member engagement, we recommend an incentive structure that allows members to track their progress and earn health points.
The incentive program is based on a simple point structure. The member will gain health points based on the completion of health related tasks such as, Member Health Assessment, Biometric Screening, Engagement in Program Activities, Progressive Disease Prevention, and Health Coaching. This incentive structure will be based off of the selected programs and designed in coordination with the organization.
Biometric Screenings with Lab Work provide vital information about overall health, including cholesterol (total, LDL and HDL), triglycerides, cardiac risk, glucose, blood pressure, resting heart rate, height, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), waist measurement, hip measurement and body composition.
assessmentMember Health Assessment
The Member Health Assessment (MHA) is a short survey that asks questions about specific lifestyle habits and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Members will complete this upon initial login.
Targeted Programs focus on member lifestyles to help them make changes and reach their health goals through a series of videos. Each program consists of four consecutive weekly online sessions that take 20 – 30 minutes each to complete. Assignments are given each session to move on to the next weekly course. Members must attend all weekly sessions and they may only participate in one Health-e Steps Targeted Program at a time.
Unlimited inbound access to the member’s assigned Progressive Wellness health professional through the member portal. Assigned health professionals will create a comprehensive health plan for the member based on the Member Health Assessment and Biometric Screening information. Health Professionals, including registered dieticians, clinicians and exercise specialists, provide another supportive touch point to help foster healthy behaviors in our members. Additionally, assigned health professional will reach out to inactive members resulting in unmatched engagement rates.
