Baptist Health System Selects HealthScreen Disease Management for Employee Health Management Services
Date:12/17/2009

HealthScreen will provide Baptist with on-going Healthcare Cost/Risk Analysis reports, activity measures and outcomes reporting to monitor the impact of expected health improvements as it translates toward reduced claim costs and positive return on investment over the course of the contract.

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2009 -- HealthScreen Disease Management, an independent health risk management company specializing in clinical/claims based cost risk analysis along with personalized nurse care, announced today that it has been selected to provide on-going data analysis and health management services for Baptist Health System’s employee/dependent population. Baptist, headquartered in Birmingham, is one of the largest health care systems in Alabama and one of the state’s largest employers, with four hospitals and an extensive network of Baptist Health Centers throughout north and central Alabama.

HealthScreen will engage individuals to participate in both “at-risk” and chronic care
Programs with telephonic registered nurse care managers, who actively coach, motivate and promote self-empowerment toward positive behavioral change for a healthier lifestyle. The nurse develops a personal one-on-one relationship with the participant, sets goals for accountability and monitors compliance of their personal health plan relative to the medical condition(s) present. Prescription drug copayment waivers and/or reductions and free condition monitoring devices (such as blood pressure monitors, diabetic supplies, etc.) are offered as incentives to encourage participants to maintain performance protocols. In addition to condition-specific health management and education, nurse care managers encourage wellness and prevention strategies, smoking cessation, weight control and overall life-age maintenance.

HealthScreen will provide Baptist with on-going Healthcare Cost/Risk Analysis reports, activity measures and outcomes reporting to monitor the impact of expected health improvements as it translates toward reduced claim costs and positive return on investment over the course of the contract.

“HealthScreen’s personalized approach, emphasis on engaging employees/dependents, and motivating our members to take control of their health really appealed to us.” said Alan Bradford, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Baptist. J. Melvin Deese, Jr., M.D., Chairman of HealthScreen added, “We are very pleased to lead the on-going effort with Baptist Health System to encourage healthy, productive behavioral and lifestyle changes for their employees and their families. We’ve had many success stories with employers and individuals over the past thirteen years, and we are privileged to partner and work with Baptist.”
