UPMC WorkPartners Announces New Health Management and On-Site Health Services

New Website Promotes Robust Suite of Health and Productivity Services

PITTSBURGH, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- UPMC WorkPartners, part of the world-renowned UPMC global health enterprise, announces a major expansion of its integrated health and productivity services to companies in Western Pennsylvania and across the country. Highlighting the expansion are on-site clinics and mobile health management, as well as state-of-the-art health and wellness product lines, and an enhanced website. The new www.workpartners.com includes downloadable product brochures and online quoting capabilities for brokers.

"For nearly 15 years, WorkPartners has steadily expanded our suite of services to provide innovative, best-in-class approaches to significantly impact employee health and productivity in the workplace," said David. M. Weir, President of WorkPartners. "With our customized approach, WorkPartners has the unique ability to bring comprehensive, integrated solutions to a wide range of employers  throughout the region."

The new health management services offered by WorkPartners include the award-winning UPMC MyHealth suite of health and wellness programs, health coaching, health risk assessments, and customized interventions.

"The challenges of today's economy, coupled with the uncertainty of health care reform issues, make planning for managing the health and productivity of your employee a strategic business decision," Weir said. "If we want to get in front of rising medical costs and improve the health and productivity of our workforce, we must get more of our employees involved in managing their health."  

These programs, although new to the market, have already been implemented with proven results at the various companies of UPMC, the parent company of Work Partners. "Our programs can be designed to enhance a company's existing services or fully implemented from ground up," Weir said. "Supporting all our programs is a tremendous analytics team that measures the performance of each program to ensure its effectiveness."

"The depth of resources and expertise available through UPMC WorkPartners is unmatched in the industry, and provides both employers and employees a true collaborative partner that is also a known leader in the field," said Diane P. Holder, President and CEO of UPMC Health Plan and President of the UPMC Insurance Services Division, which includes UPMC WorkPartners.
