In a tribute to end the two days of discussions about scaling, partnering, and commercializing Health 2.0, we heard from two of the biggest “post-insurers”, one of the biggest pharma companies, and America’s leading delivery system.
In this session, Health 2.0 discusses how employers are actively engaging employees with results based wellness programs and providing educational services and tools. Encouraging employees to make better wellness decisions and improving access helps employers, too, since healthier employees mean less sick days, better productivity and lower insurance costs. We talked with a few companies that are embracing wellness programs, and saw the programs in action with live demos.
