19,000 users; 10-61% drop in high risk health behaviors
Medforma's programs help lower health risks across all key costly preventive diseases. Period. Our efficient online tools "zero in" on health behavior change that people are ready to change, effectively using employee's valuable time and employer budgets. Medforma users report success rates of 63% or higher at changing one targeted health behavior for more than one year. This produces ROIs of 10:1 minimum or a savings of $500-$1000 per employee per year. Of course, the return on investment goes far beyond medical cost savings and includes improved productivity and morale. You can change your company culture when you give your employees the tools they need to become a healthier, more vital workforce.
Medforma's programs apply to all employees and dependents regardless of selected health plan or providers. This, along with our pledge of privacy, results in participation rates that far surpass typical wellness programs. There's never any hidden agenda to use data for insurance rating or denial purposes, create medical or disease management referrals, distractive advertising or sell additional supplies or services. Medforma data is collected independently of health plans and stays with the company year after year even if the health plans change. This is valuable in allocating wellness resources as it provides a long-term unified look at the entire workforce's progress in reducing targeted health risks.
Medforma programs are designed to be easy, efficient, and effective to use.
The best way to learn more about them is to read what employers and employees who have used them liked most:
