  15. 15. Wellness is a Journey; Not aDestination Health is more that not getting sick or hurt- it is about a experiencing an overall higher quality of life. As stewards of health, we at Lahey, have a responsibility to promote wellness, as well as, treat illness. We are embracing the future of healthcare by taking the lead to create a culture of health for members of our community.
  16. 16. Promoting Preventive Care in theWorkplace In todays fast-paced, digitally driven world, and in the face of difficult economic times, individuals are not taking the time to focus upon simple preventive health principles Our Treating you Right pledge applies to our patients, colleagues and community.  We encourage all to pursue a healthy lifestyle by providing diverse wellness programs and serving as a direct link between improved health and lifestyle changes- so that no one has to face it alone. It’s the right thing to do- but there is also science behind it.
  17. 17. Reasons for Offering HealthImprovement Programs  The current ROI of health and wellness initiatives is distributed fairly evenly with a median between 2:1 and 3:1.  Wellness programs:  Improve the health of colleagues and reduce absenteeism/presenteeism  Improve employee morale and productivity  Provide a positive example to the community
  18. 18. Why Wellness? Wellness initiatives are a strategic imperative for hospitals that want to be sustainable in the new world order of healthcare.  Healthy People 2020 provides a national framework and set of important goals for the health of our nation.  The Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) builds on the Healthy People framework to establish the National Prevention, Health Promotion and Public Health Council, which will coordinate and lead the activities of more than a dozen federal agencies.7  The ACA also includes various incentives to promote employee health and wellness programs.
  19. 19. Lahey’s Health Improvement ProgramGoals: Reduce health care costs.  Assess outcomes and ROI. Engage ALL colleagues in health and wellness as well as high-risk populations and men. Move toward a “culture of health” rather than a program-by-program approach.  Offer programs and services emphasizing awareness, prevention, and positive health behavior change. Foster a campus environment supportive of a healthy lifestyle.
