The Value of Wellness: A Healthy Workforce is a Competitive Advantage
Dr. Fabius will highlight research in the literature that connects a healthy workforce to better performance and productivity. He will feature his textbook – Population Health: Creating Cultures of Wellness to define population health and its component parts. Additionally he will feature his own research connecting award winning “culture of health” companies to marketplace superior performance. Dr. Fabius will close by sharing his most recent research on quantifying – a corporate culture of health - by sharing an evidence based methodology that can score both mid-market and large employers out of 1000 points. This process also identifies gaps from benchmark and can develop a multi-year strategic plan for employers to achieve flat or decreasing health care costs while improving the health status of their covered lives.

Leveraging the Value of Health and the Power of Prevention
The main reason the U.S. is experiencing a healthcare cost crisis, is because we have a health crisis in our society—which is causing an increase in the burden of chronic illness that is driving a growing demand for healthcare services. A sustainable solution to this cost conundrum is to reduce the health risk factors that lead to chronic disease: to move beyond our reactive, illness based, sick-care system to a proactive, wellness oriented, true health care system built from a foundation of value driven population health management and upon the pillars of prevention.
Therefore, leading employers are looking beyond healthcare benefits as a cost to be managed and rather to the benefits of good health as investments to be leveraged.
This presentation will review practical employer initiatives that are delivering compelling results in lowering healthcare costs while enhancing the health and productivity of the workforce.
The bottom line is that good health is good business.
