The Rand Wellness Programs Study examined two aspects of an employer’s wellness program: the lifestyle management component and the disease management component.
Interestingly, disease management was responsible for 86 percent of the hard health care cost- savings, generating $136 in savings per member, per month, and a 30 percent reduction in hospital admissions.
When employees aren’t feeling well, either physically or emotionally, their productivity declines. Consider the difference between an employee who rolls out of bed and drags in to work versus an employee who exercises before coming to work. Exercise produces natural opiates or endorphins, which increase energy, enhance mood and promote overall wellness. The result? The employee who is exercising, and typically healthier as a result, will likely show up to work with more energy and enhanced positivity.
Studies have shown that patients who receive coaching have an improvement in psychological, physical and behavioral well-being. These outcomes are important and relevant to patient’s quality of life and demonstrates how pharmacists can help make an impact in the larger picture of healthcare.
