Top 5 Measures of Successful
Incentives Programs

Top 5 Measures of Successful Incentives Programs This Week's Challenge: Healthcare companies have grown increasingly creative in their use of economic and benefits-based incentives to drive engagement and participation in health and wellness programs. We wanted to see how healthcare companies measure the success of their incentive programs. Click here to view a printable version of the chart.

What We Learned: The third annual Health and Wellness Incentives Use e-survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network captured the expanding focus, utilization and impact of health and wellness incentives in the healthcare industry, from types of incentives offered to methods for identifying individuals for incentive programs and reasons for providing incentives. According to 156 healthcare organizations who responded to the survey, the top five measures of a successful incentive program are:

  • Participation: 78.2 percent

  • Aggregate HRA data: 60.3 percent

  • Health claims data: 48.7 percent

  • Program completion: 48.7 percent

  • Self-report: 48.7 percent
