The Role of Data Optimization in Reducing Healthcare Costs and Improving Employee Health and Productivity
Companies across the country are struggling to keep up with the ever-increasing costs of providing healthcare coverage to an employee population that has grown increasingly unwell. Employers spend billions each year due to their employees’ poor health, but employees’ pocketbooks are affected as well. Because of high-deductible health plans, they’re responsible for an increasingly larger portion of their own healthcare costs. This has led many to make tough choices about their care, like putting off care or not taking their prescribed medications. For employees living with chronic conditions, this can have disastrous effects. For employers, it further increases costs and reduces productivity.
