According to the CDC, many employers are unaware of the linkages between health and productivity. While employers understand that investing in human capital improves the company bottom line, they are only beginning to understand the impact health has on worker productivity.
In fact, indirect costs of poor health including absenteeism, disability, or reduced work output may be several times higher than direct medical costs
Productivity losses related to personal and family health problems cost U.S. employers $1,685 per employee per year, or $225.8 billion annually
These indirect costs affect all employers, even those who avoid direct medical costs by not funding health insurance.
Quality Care Partners works with the employer to create programs that fit with the environment of each individual company. While our community-based approach to Disease management has been extremely successful, we also offer a telephonic program that provides the support and education that members with chronic diseases need to better understand and manage their disease. Quality Care Partners’ programs are customizable to the needs of the employer while still being centered on achieving outstanding results, including reduction in ER visits, shorter length of stays and happier, healthier employees.
Before enrolling in the QCP Disease Management program, my health was not good. I was not able to control my chronic condition and was suffering from complications due to my disease. Since being in the disease management program with QCP, I have learned how to manage my disease and my health has improved and I feel better than I have in a long time. I am more active now and truly cannot thank QCP enough.
