The Behavior Side of Preventive Medicine: Workplace, Employees and Pharma

April 13, 2016

The buzz: “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…I’m feeling good.” Bravo to your HR for offering employee health strategy programs! That means everyone is so healthy and fit that attendance and productivity are way up. Not so much? Perhaps they forgot to address how workforce behavior – do they WANT to improve their health habits – and circumstances impact illness prevention, or the importance of engagement, commitment and alignment among employer and insurer plan sponsors, healthcare providers and individual workers.

Now consider this: If life sciences companies would make prevention a core competency, then physicians, insurers, patients and pharma companies should be able to work together to broadly improve prevention and create a win-win for ‘every body’.
