Date:7/22/2009

Ten million employees around the United States will now have mindful health and diet changes at their finger tips as eMindful.com, a leading source of online health and wellness information and education, partners with Convergence Health (www.convergencehealth.com).

Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2009 -- Ten million employees around the United States will now have mindful health and diet changes at their finger tips as eMindful.com, a leading source of online health and wellness information and education, partners with Convergence Health (www.convergencehealth.com).

"Even as we see growing concern over the health of today's workforce, we know that companies want to work with a one stop shop that can provide health risk assessment, tools for healthy behavior change, and incentives programs," explains Kelley McCabe Ruff, founder and CEO of eMindful.com, which offers online behavior change classes such as mindful eating and stress management. "Clients of Convergence Health, which reaches ten million workers, will now be able to access our proven healthy behavior change classes on-line as part of their commitment to greater health."

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services every dollar spent by companies on improving the health of their workforce, results in savings of $1.49 to $4.91 in health care costs and lost work time. Ruff notes that web-based programs are a natural match for the contemporary workforce.

"Partnering with Convergence Health also allows eMindful to offer a whole suite of wellness products that include the tools for health assessment and information available from Convergence Health," says Ruff.

"Through Convergence Health, employees can complete an online health risk assessment, receive personalized recommendations for improving their health risk factors, and participate in group classes, such as those offered by eMindful, to learn the skills and tools that support behavior change," says Byron Gehring, CEO of Convergence Health. "We put a menu of complementary health tools literally at their finger tips."

This partnership builds on the recently developed partnership with gBehavior.com, a company that develops software packages that allow employers to outline key healthy behavior changes and track their employees' success in adopting them. Employees receive online shopping credits as they achieve the prioritized health goals.

These partnerships have the potential to be a cost-saving enhancement for companies and individuals, she notes. In the past four decades, annual healthcare spending has increased from $75 billion to over $2 trillion. Obesity-related medical procedures, such as joint replacements, diabetes management, and dialysis, increase annual healthcare costs by up to $6,000 compared to healthcare costs for people who are not obese, demonstrating the fiscal value of prevention efforts, says Ruff.

eMindful (www.emindful.com) is the leading Internet source for comprehensive health and wellness services. Courses include mindful eating, stress management, forgiveness, yoga, and qigong. eMindful's online courses offer cost-effective and convenient access to our internationally acclaimed team of experts with whom you may see, hear, and interact via the virtual classroom in the comfort of your home, at the office, or anywhere you can have a broadband Internet connection.
