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.
For example, at Avera—a health care system based in South Dakota—every $1 spent on Avera’s To Your Health wellness program generates $2.84 in health care savings since 2012.
