Winning the Battle on Disease Production and High-cost Medical Claims

How Genesis Health System Fought Back Against Metabolic Syndrome

  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

This webinar will cover how a specific behavioral counseling program uniquely addresses the four primary goals of effective employer health promotion to its employee population — measurable outcomes, program scalability, employee engagement and simplicity of implementation and administration. Attendees will learn how Genesis Health System team members reversed the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and thereby reduced their risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and other serious health issues.

What You Will Learn:

  • The role that metabolic syndrome can cause in future high-cost medical claims and the production of preventable diseases typically driven by obesity, poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyles
  • Best practices for reaching large employee populations spread across different facilities through a skill-building curriculum that blends video content, live coaching and online community support
  • The primary methodologies used in behavioral science to draw in employee participation and drive long-term adoption and adherence
  • The mental health needs (e.g., confidence, self-esteem) and skill-building techniques that are integrated into effective behavioral counseling programs
