Alere Health executives will lead a workshop titled “The Value Cascade: Employee Health Management Performance Reporting Best Practices” on Sept. 30 at the 2014 in San Diego, CA. Senior VP of Health Intelligence Michael Connor, DrPH, and Director of Health Promotions & Participant Support Beth Reynolds will present the key value measurement domains and performance assessment techniques for employee health management (EHM) programs, and participants will apply those techniques hands-on by working through two real-world EHM case studies in small teams.

“Employers have long needed effective metrics for assessing and reporting EHM impact,” said Dr. Connor. “This workshop will give HR professionals the tools they need to create compelling reports that meaningfully demonstrate program value and highlight areas where improvements can increase that value.”

EHM is a critical component of employer efforts to improve the health of employees, increase employee worksite productivity and control healthcare costs, and measurement and reporting are crucial to EHM success. Dr. Connor’s workshop will help attendees strengthen their own reporting by applying best practices determined in an extensive market-need assessment and employer pilot testing.

Attendees will gain an understanding of how to provide high-level reporting clarity through a value summary cascade that includes program engagement, health impact, utilization, financial savings and program satisfaction. They will also learn how to include performance assessment measurement of both trends and targets, along with pertinent next steps regarding areas of improvement.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be prepared to better report their own EHM performance by:
