CDC: Workplace Health Promotion Using the Workplace to Improve the
Nation’s Health. 2015
Four of the 10 most expensive health conditions for US employers—high blood
pressure, heart attack, diabetes, and chest pain—are related to heart disease and stroke.
Work-related stress is the leading workplace health problem and a major occupational
health risk, ranking above physical inactivity and obesity.
Productivity losses linked to employees who miss work cost employers $225.8 billion,
or $1,685 per employee, each year.
Full-time workers who are overweight or obese and have other chronic health
problems miss about 450 million more days of work each year than healthy workers. The result is
an estimated cost of more than $153 billion in lost productivity each year.
A 1% reduction in excess weight and high blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol
levels has been shown to save $83 to $103 annually in medical costs per person.
✔ We Can Do This
A Reminder from the World Health Organization
80% of Chronic Illness is Preventable
through Modiﬁable Lifestyle Habits
Our challenge is, knowing what needs to be modiﬁed, and how to modify
Biometrics & Genomics
Biometrics: Biometrics provide a numerical snapshot of health. This quantiﬁcation of health
helps health care professionals identify disease risks by comparing the numbers to what is
considered typical or healthy. Biometrics such as blood pressure, blood glucose, are taken by
healthcare professionals - however now we have wearable technology, NOT to replace medical
diagnostics - but we can take better charge of our health tracking such biomarkers. Knowing and
watching numbers is a key way to monitor our health - knowing when we need to make a trip to the
doctor sooner, and becoming more vigilant to our health.
Genomics: A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. Each
genome contains all of the information needed to build and maintain that organism. In humans, a
copy of the entire genome—more than 3 billion DNA base pairs—is contained in all cells that have a
nucleus. Genomics is the study of our genome - analyzing genes and their inter relationships in
order to identify their combined inﬂuence on the growth and development of the organism. We can
identify if a person is at higher risk of a disease, and the person can make more targeted solutions
about their health, lifestyle choices, and open discussions with healthcare professionals - how to
utilize this knowledge.
Genetics vs. Epigenetics
Genetics: Our genetic material as passed on from Mamma & Pappa
Epigenetics: refers to covalent (chemical bonds
formed from the sharing of electrons) modiﬁcation of the
genetic material (DNA, protein, or RNA), resulting in
changes to the function and/or regulation of these
molecules, without altering their primary sequences. In
some cases, epigenetic modiﬁcations are stable and
passed on to future generations, but in other instances
they are dynamic and change in response to
environmental stimuli. Nearly every aspect of biology is
inﬂuenced by epigenetics, making it one of the most
important ﬁelds in science
Genomic Testing…Sequencing the Genome
Our DNA does NOT have to be our destiny.
Knowledge is Power
Sooner or later, we will shift from population-based medicine to personalized medicine for
most medical conditions, and genomics will be front and center in this conversion
• Know diseases & conditions we are most susceptible to
• Encourage deeper dialogue with health care professionals
• Encourage regular diagnostics
• Encourage better lifestyle habits
• Encourage consumerization of healthcare
• Encourage discussion

Incentivizing with Wearable Technology
BICH can also design an Incentivized with wearable technology program. Along
with the HRA & CCA, for the cost of the wearable technology only, BICH further
customizes the HRA and the wellness programs based on the detailed biometrics
obtained from the wearable device.
New heights of personalization…..employees biometrics determine the wellness

1/5 People Own Wearable Technology
46% said they believe their company should
fund wearable technology for employees.
Raconteur August 2016
“wearable and self-monitoring
medical technology is changing the
way we think about our own
According to a recent survey by software
service company Trustmarque and YouGov,
81% of respondents said they would like to
see more connected and wearable devices
used in healthcare, with half saying
wearables were potentially most useful to
monitor vulnerable people.
Collette Johnson, director of medical at
electronics consultancy Plextek, believes the
use of self-monitoring devices has enormous
potential and could help the NHS save at
least 60 per cent on the average cost per
patient. Crucially, she thinks, the public is
ready for it.”
“And in a patient with a chronic condition,
such as diabetes or chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease, a wearable monitoring
device might alert them earlier to a change
in their health which needs medical
attention. So wearables can help patients
engage with the medical community
Cédric Hutchings, vice president for health
at Nokia Technologies, agrees. “The
greatest beneﬁt from wearables is in chronic
disease management through
empowering the patient”

How data analytics is
changing employee beneﬁt
developments in data
analytics have unlocked the
potential of using consumer
behavior insights to drive
employee beneﬁts strategy.
What better data analytics are there for health than biometrics & genomics? An
HRA for behaviors + these scientiﬁc insights into an employee’s physiology,
could there be anything more accurately predictive? Not rear view of claims -
there is nothing else more predictive to rely on for employee health
beneﬁts strategies than Biometrics & Genomics.
Provide Employees Real time Data they can:
Get Involved in their health
See a Direct Correlation between Effort & Success
Know how to better target their own genetic predispositions
Have the science to support better lifestyle choices
Participate in fun challenges
Motivate Employees adherence to lifestyle and management protocol
Most of all…prevent chronic illness…..
The Cost of Treatment Non Adherence
• Non-adherence also leads to $4 billion in costs to the country’s healthcare system, 5% of
hospital admissions and 5% of physician visits
• Leads to increased beneﬁt costs, lost productivity, temporary disability and increased
• Solving for non-adherence can mean deciphering complex patient motivators and tailoring
strategies speciﬁcally for that person
• Some groups are more at risk than others… Ex. clinically depressed patients—or those with
another underlying condition that impacts mental health—are more likely to be non-adherent
• Conditions with no symptoms, or those that have symptom-free periods, are more likely to
lead to non-adherence
• “Increasing engagement and education surrounding adherence will
result in a reduction of many additional costs that your beneﬁts plan
and employees may be absorbing, as well as fewer hospital visits
and slower disease progression”
Sun Life 2014 “Non Adherence Costs Employers”
The Global Attitude of Patients and Physicians Survey found that more
than one-quarter of type 2 diabetics are not taking insulin as prescribed
by their physician.
• More than 25% of patients surveyed said they had missed, mistimed
(> 2 hours) and reduced doses
• 26% said they had done so ﬁve or more times in a 30-day period
• 20% of respondents said they deliberately did not take their insulin as
• 1/7 allowed blood glucose levels go higher to reduce their risk of
nocturnal self-treated minor nocturnal hypoglycemia.

Winston Churchill: “Personally I’m
always ready to learn, although I do
not always like being taught
• A study in the journal, College Teaching, found that students could recall a
statistics lecture more easily when the lecturer added jokes about relevant topics.
• In her book, Neurologist, Judy Willis showed how fun experiences increase levels
of dopamine, endorphins, and oxygen – all things that promote learning.
• In a study for the Journal of Vocational Behaviour, Michael Tews found that
employees are more likely to try new things if their work environment is fun
