B003 Measuring the Benefits of Both Health and Care Interventions Through Expansion of Employer-sponsored Occupational Services (Intermediate)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Topic Overview:

As employers feel the pressure of providing a solution to the rising cost of healthcare, many turn to on-site services and wellness programs. However, when asked, many employers struggle to provide a measurable return on investment—calculated in terms of improved health and impact to the bottom line. In the Towers Watson 2012 Onsite Health Center survey, which looks at 74 large employers, 53% of those employers do not know or track their return on investment. Through longitudinal studies conducted on large employee populations, this session will offer validated research about the clinical and economic benefits of these services and their related interventions. 

The impact of the services and interventions is reviewed from several relevant angles:

  • Influence on health risk factors.
  • Impact on resource utilization.
  • Effect on medication adherence.
  • Improvement in clinical outcomes.
  • Prompt cost savings.



  1. Recognize the influence of employee wellness programs on health risk factors.
  2. Explain the impact of employee wellness programs on resource utilization.
  3. Identify the effect of medication adherence. 
  4. Describe the value of on-site services and wellness programs in terms of clinical outcomes..
  5. Explain how to measure the cost savings of on-site services and wellness programs.
