21 Creative Wellness Program Promotional Strategies, a February 8, 2006 audio conference on CD-ROM, provides an inside look at the most effective strategies three different wellness professionals have used to boost participation and outcomes in their wellness programs.

Click here to listen to some comments from our audio conference presenters.

Wellness programs are only as successful as the number of participants in the program. Getting individuals motivated to participate in programs is perhaps one of the biggest challenges that wellness professionals face.

During this 60-minute audio conference on CD-ROM, your expert panel of speakers, William Baun, manager, human resources and wellness department at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Aaron Hardy, wellness coordinator with Washoe County School District, and Rebecca Kelly, wellness coordinator at American Cast Iron Pipe Company (ACIPCO) Health Services, will provide inside details on the creative wellness promotional strategies that they've used to spark interest and participation in their wellness programs.

In this "roundtable" audio conference, each of these industry experts will take turns describing seven of their most effective strategies in promoting their programs -- from concepts to results.

You can "attend" this program right in your office and enjoy significant savings – no travel time or hassle; no hotel expenses. It’s so convenient! Invite your staff members to listen in.

The growth and market adoption of consumer-driven healthcare continues to drive health plans and employers to develop more widespread member and employee health improvement initiatives.

Workplace Wellness Case Studies: Tactics To Promote Health and Reduce Risk looks at what’s working in health plan wellness and health promotion programs—award-winning and unique efforts, best practices, ROI, and lessons learned.

Starting with case studies of health improvement innovations in place at three national health plans, this 111-page report then delves into two parallel tactics that are gaining ground among employers: pitting departments against each other in a friendly competition for the healthiest workers and rewarding employees for healthy lifestyle choices. Both the game plan for healthy workplace competition and a profusion of winning ideas for incentives are profiled here.

You’ll get case studies from some of the pioneers in wellness programming, including American Cast Iron Pipe Company, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Alliance Plan, HealthPartners, Meridian Health System, Texas Health Resources and Washoe County School District.

You'll get details on:

  • Analyzing the outcomes for a program run by Highmark to reverse heart disease;
  • Forming a winning wellness team;
  • Designing incentives to increase wellness program participation;
  • Evaluating the payback on wellness programs;
  • Targeting your marketing to multiple audiences;
  • Using health coaches in wellness programs; and
  • Ensuring your wellness program's compliance with HIPAA.
