Rethinking Value in Employee Health Care
Employers are losing up to 1.3 trillion dollars in productivity due to chronic disease. That may be why, more than ever before, employers are focused on the total health of their employee population. Factors such as good physical condition, good mental health as well as properly managed chronic conditions lower employee illness and injury.
As employers grow and maintain that growth, they often recognize the value of having an occupational health provider onsite to address injuries, reducing downtime and treatment costs. But traditionally, employers have used a "siloed" approach when offering wellness, primary care and occupational health services. These boundaries have limited the effectiveness of each initiative.

UnityPoint Health at Work believes employers are underrecognized stakeholders in the health and wellbeing of our communities.
