Wellness programs are important to employees’ health and employers’ long-term cost savings. However, many employers discover hurdles to making wellness programs work:

  • • Initiating employee participation

  • • Maintaining employee engagement, year after year

Stride to Wellness helps employers address these issues through a customized wellness solution that includes the services, tools, vendor partners and incentives employers need to motivate their employee population. Stride to Wellness is a results-driven wellness program that evolves as employee engagement grows. Employers can begin with incentives for participation and develop Stride to Wellness into a compliance-based wellness program. This innovative wellness program includes the support of a wellness plan strategist, helping to steer program success using biometric screening results. A biometric screening program helps members improve their health through three important steps: health risk discovery, education and health coaching.

Wellness Program Strategy and Management

Each employer participating in the Stride to Wellness program is assigned his or her own wellness plan strategist for program review, management and support. The wellness plan strategist determines program direction and incentives for best0fit programs and services, based on employees’ clinical health risks; these are derived from biometric screenings. Interactions also include:

  • • Printed program guides to store and manage program documents and reports.

  • • Incentive program development and tracking

  • • Monthly, annual and specialty report distribution and analysis. Examples of reports include risk stratification analysis and value on investment.

  • • Use of the Funding Insight Tool (FIT) to establish budget and incentive dollars.
