    Program Announcement

    The Golden East Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management is pleased to present the following program for our members and guests:

    TOPIC:  “Stop asking the question why does healthcare cost so much ….?”

    Presenter:  Chris Caramanico, CEO, Orthus Health

    As health care costs continue to increase, employers and employees are searching for ways to keep these costs under control and as manageable as possible. One of the ways to do this are through preventive health and wellness benefits, which are designed to help maintain or improve employees’ behavior to achieve better health and to reduce health risks. By warding off health problems or lowering the incidence of health problems among employees, organizations can save on long-term health costs.

    By offering employees the means and the educational tools to take control of their wellness, employers promote a healthier, more productive work environment. And, a well-executed program can reduce health care costs, augment productivity and increase employee retention, providing further support for the correlation between personal health and job satisfaction.

    It’s time to rethink “wellness” by taking action and inspiring change.  And, Orthus Health believes the way to do this is to:

    1. Discover hidden savings and emerging modifiable risks
    2. Direct personalized action that motivates positive change
    3. Deliver individualized health and lifestyle interventions
    4. Drive meaningful health cost trends that last

    This presentation is about the science behind “wellness” in today’s world and what every human resources professional should be thinking about to best control health care costs.
