tools for improving core stability and overall strength, and telephonic

health coaching.

"We recognize that our future success is dependent upon our people," commented John Galley, Vice President - Compensation, Benefits, and HRIS of UPMC. "We are in an industry where the supply of labor has not kept pace with the need. Good, talented people are in demand, including nurses, pharmacists, and other clinical and non-clinical personnel. With the labor market tight and likely to be tighter in the future, we want to make investments in our people to make sure they are as healthy, satisfied, and productive as they can be."

An important component in UPMC's approach to health and productivity is an emphasis on wellness, especially identifying health risks before they become a chronic condition or disease.

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.
