Conference Description:

Why Should You Attend:

One way to reduce health care costs is to reduce the overall demand for medical services. This is in light of the fact that approximately 55% of all emergency room visits are for non-urgent problems and about 25% of all physician visits could have been treated at home.

Demand can be managed by providing self-care information that helps employees become more knowledgeable about when they need medical assistance and when they can take care of themselves. This is a very important aspect of consumer driven health care.

This presentation will address the characteristics of successful demand management programs, including goals, strategies, material selection, workshops, telephonic advice lines, software, and promotional activities. Finally, information about 18 self-care studies that demonstrated an average savings of $71.42 per employee in 9 months will be presented.

Who will Benefit:

- HR Professionals
- Benefits Consultants
- Benefits Managers
- Compensation Specialists
- Wellness Coordinators
