21 Creative Wellness Program Promotional Strategies, a February 8, 2006 audio conference, will provide an inside look at the most effective strategies three different wellness professionals have used to boost participation and outcomes in their wellness programs.

Wellness programs are only as successful as the number of participants in the program. Getting individuals motivated to participate in programs is perhaps one of the biggest challenges that wellness professionals face.

During this 60-minute audio conference, your expert panel of speakers, William Baun, manager, human resources and wellness department at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Aaron Hardy, wellness coordinator with Washoe County School District, and Rebecca Kelly, wellness coordinator at American Cast Iron Pipe Company (ACIPCO) Health Services, will provide inside details on the creative wellness promotional strategies that they've used to spark interest and participation in their wellness programs.

3.) Health Risk Assessments: First Line of Defense in Population Health Management

A powerful component of a health population management strategy is the Health Risk Assessment (HRA), which evaluates a population's health status and targets actionable programs to address identified risks. Whether implemented by employers or health plans, developing effective HRAs and mining the resulting data is a strategic means of harnessing healthcare costs and fostering consumer awareness of their own health state. Last month, the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) polled its online audience to gauge the presence and power of HRAs in the healthcare industry.

4.) Getting The Most Out Of Your Incentive Program

In the early days of health promotion management, program incentives were simple things: apples, time off, an occasional gift certificate or door prize. As incentives became more complex and valuable, so did the ways they were used. Wellness Program Management Advisor asked Michael Carter, vice president of the Hay Group, a human resources consulting group, to help us understand this complex topic.

5.) Wellness Program Management Yearbook, Third Edition

Hot off the presses! The key ingredients for successful programs, comparative statistics, best practices in workplace wellness programs, how you can motivate your employees, "real-world" management methods, new and emerging trends in health promotion and disease prevention and what other companies are doing, all organized and compiled for you in the new Wellness Program Management Yearbook, Third Edition.

This is a desk reference that is bound to get "dog-eared" because you'll go to it often to research a new idea, see what a colleague at another company did, or even to prepare for a presentation to top management.
