Lyndhurst, NJ (PRWEB) August 20, 2008 -- www.incentone.com [IncentOne]], the leading provider of integrated incentive administration solutions, announced today that it is offering a "Flu Prevention Rewards Program™" to increase participation in employer, health plan and other health care provider sponsored flu shot and other flu vaccine programs.
The impact of the flu is widespread - from corporations to families to health care costs. Direct medical costs related to the flu are estimated to be as high as $10.4 billion annually, with lost school days, work days and productivity estimated at $71-$167 billion annually. The Flu Prevention Rewards Program has been designed to drive the participation rate in company or health care provider sponsored flu shot and vaccine programs in efforts to reduce the staggering overall costs associated with this debilitating illness.
With the flu season quickly approaching the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that the single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year beginning in September and throughout the flu season, into January, February and beyond.
IncentOne's Flu Prevention Rewards Program utilizes a powerful, web-based incentive solution that enables employers, health plans and other health care providers to issue an award to employees or members for getting a flu vaccine. Program participants that have gotten their flu vaccine will receive their award electronically through email or paper through U.S. mail that can be easily redeemed online or by calling the program hotline, choosing from numerous gift cards, merchandise, healthy rewards and more.
The website and award can be customized with company or health plan branding, logo, content and personalized messaging. The website also enables polling, tracking, reporting, custom reward options and other features.
"Flu vaccine programs have demonstrated clear economic benefits", says Michael Dermer, CEO and President of IncentOne. "By using IncentOne's data and collaborating with its industry-leading customers and partners, IncentOne has developed a program to drive participation in flu vaccine programs to both prevent illness and reduce health care costs for health plans, governments and employers."
