Sponsored by: Value-Driven Healthcare in Action: A Four-Pronged Approach to Meet Consumer Transparency, Quality and Access Demands

Rewarding members and employees for being savvy medical consumers and shopping is an increasing trend in healthcare, notes Sue Lewis, senior vice president of health and productivity solutions at IncentOne. Companies are leveraging the corporate Intranet, meetings and health fairs to spread the word on incentives to their populations. She has also observed that companies offering consumer-directed health plans are in the best position tax-wise to extend benefits to dependents and retirees. To hear Lewis' comments, please visit:

Lewis, along with Gary Austin, a healthcare industry consultant on corporate/product strategy and program management, Linda Davis, a consultant to the Buyers Health Care Action Group (BHCAG) in Minnesota and Mark Xistris, director of provider relations & health information for The Alliance, will examine how their respective organizations are using these four strategies to stay competitive in the fast-growing consumer-driven movement during a May 30, 2007 audio conference, Value-Driven Healthcare in Action: A Four-Pronged Approach to Meet Consumer Transparency, Quality and Access Demands.

While incentives are clearly growing in popularity, many employers, especially mid-sized companies, are only now beginning to consider them. They face a dizzying array of choices.

5.) Beyond Mugs and T-Shirts: Wellness Incentives That Boost Participation and Health Improvement

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. In order for incentives to work, they need to be designed and administered effectively. Incentives need to be significant enough to incent behavior and designed to be fair, convenient and realistic. Beyond Mugs and T-Shirts: Wellness Incentives That Boost Participation and Health Improvement explore the types of wellness incentives that work to boost participation and, most importantly, health improvement.
