EMPLOYERS

Employers have been hit hard by the soaring costs of providing employees with health care benefits. Recent studies indicate that almost 50% of corporate profits now go for health care costs versus only 7% three decades ago. Employers are actively seeking new ways to reduce health care costs without jeopardizing their ability to attract and retain workers. These factors have prompted many organizations to assume positive positions on the issue of health promotion at the work-site.
Employee wellness programs have long been advocated as a way to decrease health care costs, reduce absenteeism, and increase productivity. Wellness programs are defined as programs designed to maintain or improve employee health before problems arise.

Diversified Health Care Management Consultants, Inc. can maximize impact on employee health by developing a comprehensive wellness program that focuses on:
1. Increasing awareness of wellness issues (information)
2. Supporting health management (personal change)
3. Promoting healthy work climates (organizational support)

Worker’s Compensation


Injury to workers has a tremendous impact on industry. Almost every day approximately 10% of the average workforce is absent form their job due to disability by occupational or non-occupational situations that prevent them from working. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, American businesses are spending approximately $7.4 billion a year in worker’s compensation costs. It is estimated that by the end of the decade, disability costs will top $340 billion. Every business is incurring part of this expense. In response to these rising costs, companies are beginning to see the advantages to early intervention in response to injuries, as well as, the logic in implementing preventive programs to reduce injury incidence. Therefore, it is easy to understand why effective case management of disability is imperative.
This management of care is now beginning to encompass prevention of new injury through training, ergonomic intervention at the work site, and health and wellness programs. Resolution of first injury and prevention of second injury is also essential in effective case management. This is provided through early utilization of proper medical and therapeutic intervention as soon as the injury occurs.
