Return on Investment

When clients ask us to conduct Return on Investment (ROI) analysis on their corporate wellness program, we use a matched-case cohort model, a medical claims-based methodology. This model adheres to statistical rigor and current scientific standards for program evaluation.

It is also recognized by the industry as the best method for measurement in a real-world corporate wellness program (as opposed to a research experiment). The result is a statistical analysis that clearly demonstrates the population health and cost trend changes from one year to the next.

Your ROI won’t be reported in a vacuum. We can demonstrate how your overall population health, risk factors and other data compare to similar organizations in our extensive database.

In our experience, ROI advances and grows as a culture of health is established and a program matures—the more a participant takes advantage of our services, the higher the ROI. This is why we focus on participant engagement—and one of the reasons for our 94% client retention rate.

Examples of client ROI:

State employee health benefit plan

  • First year of program ROI for all participants was $2.90 for every $1 spent
  • The average savings per participant was $270.
Large manufacturing company with multi-year program
  • Latest year program ROI for all participants was $3.62 for every $1 spent
  • The average savings per participant was $1,563 over three years
