Healthcare Cost Containment System gets to the heart of costs – October 12, 2015

 

Healthcare cost containment is a key concern for politicians, with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently proposing to amend the Affordable Care Act. But while the Clinton proposal is stirring debate, it is unlikely to pass Congress.

Dr. Ron Loeppke, U.S Preventive Medicine’s (USPM) Vice Chairman doesn’t want to wait for Clinton – or anyone else – to have a speedy answer to the pressing problem of rising health care costs. His answer is a preventive health care agenda: “We need to the get to heart of the health care costs issue problem by leveraging the power of prevention. Organizations – especially companies – need to be thinking differently about how to reduce health care costs.”

A Living Laboratory Of Research

At USPM, Loeppke has a living laboratory to explore and find innovative ways to drive prevention. He’s created a UPSM’s Preventive Plan, a three-part health and well-being assessment combined with biometric screening designed to drive sustained behavior changes focused on wellness. Participants receives their own personalized Preventive Score and Preventive Plan.

“The key to the plan’s success is that it drives real sustained behavior changes,” Loeppke says.  “The plan provides individual incentives for participants who reach achievements in the health and wellness program.” The program uses interactive competitions and personal progress tracking, which motivates people to address health issues before they cost the company large sums of healthcare costs. “This means healthier employees, which, in turn, means lower healthcare costs for the company.”
