Alere's Dr. Michael Taitel Presents Compelling Evidence at IBI/NBCH Health & Productivity Forum that Wellness Programs Positively Impact Health & Productivity
Date:2/4/2010

rticipation study conducted by the Alere Center for Health Intelligence with two other Alere top tier employer clients.

The participation study compared the health risks of employees who only participated in the health risk assessment (HRA) with employees who participated both in the HRA and additional wellness programs following the assessment. The organizations assessed included a multi-sited technology and communications company with 32,000 employees and a multi-sited, aerospace and defense company with 25,000 employees. Results in both cases consistently showed that employees who participated in wellness programs following the HRA experienced significantly higher reductions in health risks than employees who only completed the HRA.  

"We initiated this study to determine the value of providing incentives to improve participation in wellness programs after the initial HRA," Taitel says. "We found that participation in wellness programs in addition to the HRA does result in a significantly greater risk reduction for such cost-driving factors as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stress, tobacco use and obesity, among others. And this translates into greater healthcare and productivity savings."

"These findings show that when employees participate in wellness programs, their health risks and associated health costs decrease over time," says Taitel. "This supports the call for employers to provide both incentives for participation and investment in the communications and leadership, along with the grassroots support (effort) needed to develop an organizational culture of health."

Dr. Taitel has led groundbreaking research on wellness-related issues conducted by the Alere Center for Health Intelligence. In 2008, he published a study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (JOEM) that examined various factors that influence employee participation in health risk assessments.(1) Last
