Primary care is the key to individual wellness. Roughly 22% of Americans have no primary care physician and 38% don’t get a yearly physical. Health risks often go undetected and can turn into a serious chronic disease or health event such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer. Many forms of these diseases are preventable with regular primary care visits, along with diet and exercise.
The most common excuse for not seeing a PCP is a lack of access and convenience. “I can’t get an appointment” or “I’m too busy to go during the workday” are common complaints. This causes employees to be reactive, utilizing urgent care, specialists or the emergency room, where the costs of care are significantly higher and continuity of care is typically lacking.
Traditional corporate wellness programs fail to generate ROI due to employee’s lack of primary care engagement. Avance Care’s TotalHealth program takes a different, but effective approach by closing the loop on care from screening to treatment and follow-up. Along with onsite or near-site biometric screenings, employee portal, onsite health education programs, incentives, health coaching, and health and fitness challenges, TotalHealth leverages Avance Care’s network of primary care practices to help employers control

Your employees are your greatest asset. They can also be a big expense. The average increase in healthcare costs is 6-8% for employers who do not provide an employee wellness program. But how do you implement a high-impact program that will engage employees? The answer is simple. The TotalHealth program engages employees in yearly primary care and biometric screenings, health tracking through a wellness portal, onsite wellness programs, and incentives. The result is healthier, engaged employees and a better bottom line for employers.
When your clients have employees who struggle to engage in wellness and maintain a healthy lifestyle, TotalHealth is the solution. We’ll work with your clients to build a corporate wellness program that engages all employees in healthier lifestyles and reduces healthcare costs.
