Increase employee wellness program participation rates with revolutionary, physician-approved at-home testing.
If you said participation, you’re not alone.
Many employers struggle to get their employees to manage their health, especially when it comes to preventative care.
Often, it’s because prevention is out of mind.
Most people start looking for health solutions AFTER they experience symptoms.
Your employees are no different.
But as you know, screening for conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic diseases is essential for healthy employees and, therefore, a thriving team and organization.
Employers pay more than $600B in medical care and lost productivity due to heart disease and diabetes every year.
This number is estimated to increase to OVER $1 TRILLION by 2035.
37.3 million Americans—about 1 in 10—have diabetes.
About 1 in 5 with diabetes don’t know they have it.
96 million American adults—more than 1 in 3—have pre-diabetes.
More than 8 in 10 don’t know they have it.
Screening for HbA1c enhances identifying those at risk for prediabetes, enabling you to identify those at risk of becoming high-cost claimants and intervene.
The average annual healthcare cost for an individual with diabetes is about $16,752, roughly $9,601 of that amount attributed directly to diabetes.
In comparison, the average healthcare cost for an individual without diabetes is about $5,810.
1 out of 4 employees are unaware they have hypertension. When left undetected, hypertension can lead to heart disease.
Heart disease is one of the most expensive health conditions in the US, costing over $300 billion per year.
Employees with heart disease drive an additional $1,000 to $3,000 more per year than indirect costs alone.
An employee with cardiovascular disease has an average of 13 lost workdays per year due to their condition.
High blood pressure-related absenteeism costs employers $10.3 billion per year in lost productivity.
Regular screenings align with your commitment to happy and healthy employees. They are a win-win for you and your employees.
Yet, despite this knowledge, many employees don’t participate.
For some employees, it’s the “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” mentality. They don’t have health issues or symptoms, so they don’t seek medical care or take preventive measures.
Another BIG reason employees don’t get screened: it’s inconvenient.
Busy schedules and demanding lifestyles can make it difficult for people to prioritize regular check-ups, screenings, and other preventive care activities.
A few other factors include:
At-home testing can increase access to care for employees who face barriers to visiting a healthcare provider, such as those who live in remote areas, have mobility issues, or have busy schedules.
As mentioned, inconvenience is a major reason why employees don’t get screened.
Because the tests are taken from home, employees can fit them into their schedules without disrupting their work or personal life.
Other employee benefits include:
