Wellness programs can reduce corporate healthcare costs by 20 to 55 percent and worker's compensation and disability costs by as much as 30 percent. Also, companies providing wellness programs are perceived by employees as offering important additional benefits, which enhances workforce retention.
That's why Novant Health offers Work Well. Be Well!
, a comprehensive program with a wide range of wellness options designed specifically for your company's needs. Work Well. Be Well is more than a one-time screening visit to your workplace. It's a custom-designed, comprehensive program for improving the long-term health of your employees.
Primary Care Physician Connection
It is well-documented that one of the most effective ways to prevent and manage disease is for individuals to have a primary care physician. That's why, in addition to providing employees with the tools and resources needed to improve their health, we can connect your employees with our extensive network of Novant Health physicians, who are nationally-recognized for quality and service.
The Fast Pass
gives employees expedited access to Novant Health physician practices. Appointments for the employee and their family members are guaranteed within two business days.
Lifestyle Management Programs
Our services are designed to help employees become engaged in improving their own health. Often, this involves changes, or better management, of individual lifestyle behaviors. That's why we developed programs that can be offered on-site in a supportive environment. These programs include:
- Tobacco cessation - to help identify triggers for smoking or the use of other tobacco products and to evaluate an employee's readiness to quit and take advantage of the best techniques to achieve success.
- Stress management - to help employees identify the warning signs and symptoms of stress, understand the effects of stress on health, and apply relaxation exercises and specific techniques to reduce stress.
- Diet and weight loss - to give your employees the information, tools, support and guidance to improve overall health, reduce body weight and create a new, healthier lifestyle. Components of this program include individualized meal plans, instruction on how to read nutrition labels and grocery shop for better health, and a personalized exercise plan.
Health Screenings, Risk Assessments and Health Coaching
Our highly-qualified and licensed staff can provide on-site employee health risk assessments and biometric screenings for cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and more. Your employees will receive a thorough report with valuable information about their risk factors for chronic disease. They will also receive individualized feedback on how to improve their health by reducing health risks or how to manage existing conditions.
These reports can also be used to help you evaluate where your employee population's health risks lie, so you can determine the best programs to offer them to get healthy. But more importantly, employees identified through our biometric screening as being at risk for disease, including heart disease and diabetes, can receive personal health coaching to improve their health. The tangible, bottom-line impact for your company can be lower healthcare costs, reduced absenteeism and a more productive work force.
On-Site Wellness Centers
As your partner for a healthier workplace, Novant Health can provide you with an on-site clinic staffed by a registered nurse who is available to employees on a walk-in basis to treat minor illnesses and injuries or perform basic lab tests.
