UPMC Health Plan will present its "groundbreaking and innovative research" on workplace wellness during today's Joint Forum. The Health Plan's presentation, "How to Leverage Integrated Scorecards and Predictive Modeling to Promote a Culture of Health and Productivity," was one of only 12 selected nationally from a variety of national and regional corporations involved with health care coverage and benefits.
