Customized approach to Wellness Consulting

Below is an outline of the HUB STRATA approach to developing a Wellness Program.  This process will be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.

Stage 1 - Identify: Organizational Health Risk Assessment

In this stage, data is collected and analyzed to identify the main cost drivers at your organization.  From this information, the focus of the wellness program is chosen.  The analysis can include the following:

  • Employee Health Risk Assessment
  • Health Screening Clinic
  • Extended Health Claims Review
  • Drug Utilization Review
  • Disability Claims Review
  • Absentee Data Review
  • Employee Assistance Plan Utilization
  • Employee Engagement Survey

Stage 2 - Solutions: Program Development

In this stage, the program is developed to address the main cost drivers identified in Stage 1.  The process can include the following:

  • Survey Employees
  • Establish Wellness Committee
  • Determine Delivery Methods
  • Develop Content
  • Establish Incentives
  • Create Communication Strategy

Stage 3 - Evaluate and Measure

This stage involves the ongoing monitoring of the program and evaluation.  HUB STRATA will repeat some of the analysis from stage 1 to measure the ROI of the program.
