How to measure your wellness program’s ROI

Published in BenefitsPro
Authored by Rani Aravamudhan, Senior Clinical Consultant, HDMS


While many employers are willing to invest in wellness programs, they aren’t always clear on the goals for these benefits.

Predictive Analytics: Harnessing the Power of Data

Predictive models are an amazingly powerful use of data. They can inform benefit design and help deliver personalized, meaningful user experiences.

In this presentation, attendees will gain insight into predictive analytics and learn how to leverage health data sets, such as clinical, wellbeing, and social determinants of health information to transform their employee’s health journey, identify cost savings opportunities, and assess year-over-year population-based outcomes.

In addition, the speakers will examine the use of these advanced approach analytics to navigate vaccine prioritization, deferred care risks and virtual care adoption. Although trend disruptions of 2020 have forced many to tune and adapt their current models, there are many opportunities to use existing data to create leading indicators employers can use now to set the stage for long-term change and growth with short-term benefits along the way.
