Date:6/4/2008

Launch leverages 15 years of national leadership in employee health and productivity

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., June 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HealthPartners today announced the creation of JourneyWell - a HealthPartners business designed to help businesses change employee health from a burden to a strategic asset.

Deepening HealthPartners 15-year commitment to evidence-based, results-driven employee health and wellness services, the creation of JourneyWell leverages a comprehensive range of health and productivity management programs (http://www.healthpartners.com/files/42683.pdf) including proprietary, award-winning curricula recognized for quality outcomes and cost-effectiveness. The suite of products and services are far more robust than current offerings in the health and wellness marketplace.

"Nearly one quarter of health care costs are directly related to changeable behavior and lifestyles. There is vast, untapped potential for reducing costs, improving productivity and living healthier lives," said Mary Brainerd, president and CEO of HealthPartners. "With the creation of JourneyWell, we're strengthening our presence in this growing market - partnering with employers to uncover this exciting potential and turning employee health into a business advantage."

JourneyWell products and services, which will be marketed nationally, include a customizable set of products designed to help businesses lower medical care costs, increase productivity, boost morale and improve recruitment and retention for businesses.

"For years, HealthPartners has set national benchmarks in the areas of health promotion and disease prevention," said Nico Pronk, vice president, JourneyWell. "We're proud to expand these award-winning offerings - with proven, measurable results - beyond our own customers to employers nationwide."

Since 1994, HealthPartners has offered individually-tailored programs based on scientific evidence. The group's most popular program, 10,000 Steps(R), has been implemented by companies nationwide and has received the Innovation in Prevention award from the Department of Health and Human Services. As a leading provider of health, wellness, and disease self-management programs, JourneyWell will have a specialized focus on behavior change programs.

"JourneyWell products will help employers prevent tomorrow's high-cost claims by managing the health of an entire population - one individual at a time," said Sharon Stein, vice president, JourneyWell.
