BioIQ Presents Wellness and Health Screening Trends for 2012

Complimentary Webinar and RFP Guide Now Available from the Leader in Health Screening.

With nearly 60 percent of individuals in the U.S. receiving health care coverage through employer-based health insurance,1 and average annual per employee healthcare costs projected to surpass the $10,000 milestone in 2012,2 employers are increasingly investing in wellness solutions to reduce costs.

The uncertainty introduced by the landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in conjunction with global economic challenges have further motivated employers to reduce costs by addressing the health of their covered populations. Studies from Wellness Councils of America and other reputable sources reveal that, on average, every dollar spent on wellness yields three to five dollars in savings, which has spurred more than 81 percent of U.S. employers to enact cost-saving wellness programs.3 The resulting dollars flooding into the wellness market have spawned a multitude of innovations, while market maturity has generated more demanding wellness outcomes. At the intersection of these forces lie three major wellness trends that will impact employers and consumers in 2012.

The 2012 Wellness Trends Webinar from BioIQ discusses these issues, with the goal of helping HR and wellness professionals to institute successful programs and avoid costly mistakes when establishing health screening and wellness strategies. It also provides an update on how health care reform will affect employers in 2012 and offers compelling examples of how today’s wellness leaders are implementing programs to reduce health care costs. BioIQ CEO Justin Bellante will present the free Webinar: Wellness and Screening Trends That Will Impact You In 2012.

BioIQ is also offering an updated version of its Health Screening RFP Guide & Template, which reviews the critical questions to ask vendors before launching a screening and wellness program. This free handbook gives practical advice on how to assess screening options, detect hidden fees, and easily determine the best fit for your population and health strategy. It also serves as a valuable template that will save time when reviewing vendors and sending out proposal requests.

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