Alere's Dr. Ron Loeppke to Speak on 'Health and Productivity as a Business Strategy' at First Annual IBI/NBCH Health and Productivity Forum
Date:2/11/2009

obesity, arthritis, back/neck musculoskeletal problems and anxiety disorders took on new significance in driving total health-related costs for employers.

The results suggest that when healthcare costs are either viewed in a silo or without the broader context of "full cost", the cost impact of a given condition may be seriously underestimated. Accounting for absenteeism and presenteeism in addition to medical and pharmacy costs present a more accurate picture of the full costs that companies bear because of poor employee health.

The first phase of the research study was completed in 2007. Findings from the second phase are expected to be released this spring. The study gathered data from 10 employers and 50,000 employee respondents and analyzed more than 1 million medical and pharmacy claims.
