BioIQ Presents Health Screening and Wellness Trends for 2011

Free Wellness Webinar and Health Screening RFP Template Now Available from the Leader in Health Screening and Corporate Wellness.

February 07, 2011 – It’s no secret that one of the largest costs borne by American companies is health care for employees. These expenses are expected to rise again in 2011 in anticipation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As companies look for ways to stem escalating health care costs in today’s challenging economic environment, many of them are discovering the benefits and proven returns of a well-executed Health Screening and Wellness program.

To help employers, HR professionals, and health and wellness professionals make sense of the rapidly evolving Health Screening and Wellness field, as well as to provide insight into how wellness leaders are implementing programs to reduce health care costs, BioIQ CEO Justin Bellante will present several free Webinars this month titled Wellness and Screening Trends That Will Impact Everyone (Including You) In 2011. BioIQ is also offering a free Health Screening RFP Guide & Template that covers the most important issues for HR and Wellness professionals to consider before choosing Wellness and Screening vendors.

As a Premier Provider for Wellness Councils of America (WELCOA), BioIQ will initially offer these resources to WELCOA members, followed by availability to the broader public.

A successful wellness program begins with affordable and convenient health screening options for employees and dependents. Most companies are aware of the importance of offering these tests but have difficulty choosing the right health screening vendor. HR professionals, in particular, are bombarded by a wide array of information and vendor solutions, leaving them confused about which questions to ask when requesting proposals for health screening solutions.

The biggest challenge companies face is how to effectively motivate and incentivize employees to participate in health screening programs. Additionally, health screening and wellness providers must be able to integrate health data with other wellness initiatives so that employers can pinpoint serious health conditions within their populations and establish a baseline to measure progress year over year. BioIQ helps employers overcome these challenges by providing companies with access to its free Wellness Webinars and Health Screening RFP Guide and Template.

“Employee engagement strategies are changing, wellness models are focusing on outcomes, and consumer health care products are allowing employees to take responsibility for their well-being,” said Justin Bellante, CEO at BioIQ. “Understanding these trends can help HR professionals choose the most effective wellness solutions available to produce sustained health care cost savings.”
