Wellness: Partnering with Providence to support your goals

Guest speakers:
  • Jessica Molay, health and wellness product manager, Providence Health Plan
  • Michael Severson, health management consultant, Providence Health Plan

According to a 2013 Healthcare Survey by AON Hewitt, “…wellness, prevention and health risk management are front and center in the minds of HR leaders. Every facet of the current health care mindset is focused on improving health outcomes and healthy-living behaviors.” Interestingly, over the next few years, nearly 50 percent of employers intend to shift their health care strategies from primarily improving risks and reducing costs to improving worker productivity and reducing absenteeism.

As you’ve no-doubt discovered, “wellness” covers a very broad swath – from policy, staffing and assessment, to campaigns, incentives and evaluation – it can be quite complex to sort out what’s relevant, available and most effective for a given organization. Where do you start? Whether you have an established wellness program, or you’re just beginning; what is the most effective way to further develop it with a strategic path forward?

Join us as two of our Providence Health Plan wellness professionals – Jessica Molay from the product team and Michael Severson from the health consulting team – discuss:

  • Key wellness trends and challenges in the market
  • The Providence strategy to addressing these challenges
  • Resources available to deliver on that strategy, including offerings that are unique to Providence
They will highlight real-world examples of customers who are successfully leveraging our array of on and offline tools, services and expertise to achieve their goals – with the ultimate goal of a healthy workplace culture and positive measureable outcomes.
