The impact of incentives
PicMed’s clinical incentive packages were created to address employers’ increased interest in using incentive solutions to motivate individuals to engage in healthier behaviors that may result in health care cost containment.
Our incentive capabilities are coupled with wellness and clinical programs spanning the entire health care continuum. Effective incentive solutions can help employers drive participation in clinical and preventive programs that may promote life-long adoption of healthy choices that can result in healthier, more productive employees
Do incentives really work?
A recent study of UnitedHealthcare employer groups, representing nearly 40,000 members, compared results for health assessment and online health coach completion statistics when incentives are offered and when they are not. The results showed:
- More than 70% completion of Health Assessment with incentives compared with 10% completion with no incentives
- 31% completion of Wellness Coaching programs with incentives compared to 3% completion with no incentives
- As high as 90% participation with on-site biometric screenings when incentives are offered
