Biometric Testing Solutions
MedWatch’s Steps2Health (S2H) program brings biometric testing directly to your client’s worksite enabling companies to affordably and effectively implement preventative health solutions that can reduce overall plan costs. S2H include a customizable biometric test to meet the needs of your workforce and job site.
Health Risk Assessments
Proprietary Health Risk assessment used in conjunction with biometric testing or standalone- provides a picture of member health.
Seventy percent of disease is preventable but once and individual has crossed over to a chronic disease 70% of the events that occur due to that disease are preventable. MedWatch’s Total Lifestyle Coaches work individually with members to encourage compliance with their care standard as well as positive lifestyle changes.
Employee Assistance Program
MedWatch’s Employee Assistance Program provides employers with an organization approach to working constructively with employees who experience personal and work-related problems that impact their productivity and well-being. The program also helps companies reduce direct and indirect costs through an innovative and highly-structured clinical assessment and management model that leverages the significance of behavioral health as either a primary or comorbid health condition.
Complex Condition Management
Between 5 and 10% of your group health plan costs are typically spent on the 1.1% of your population who may have one of 18 identified rare conditions such as MS, Epilepsy, Crohn’s Disease, and Scleroderma. Complex and rare conditions require extra attention to be effective, ensure quality of life and care, and keep costs under control.
Tobacco Cessation is vital to overall health. With our Tobacco Cessation program, members with work one on one with a Coach to develop a personalized plan that focuses on benefits of quitting, assessment of readiness to change, triggers for tobacco use and tools needed to quit.
Diabetic Living Connected
Eight to ten percent (8-10%) of your client’s population is diabetic. These patients are responsible for claims costs 4-5 times higher than the rest of their population combined. Our solution is the most robust in the industry as we identify 24/7/365 when a member needs immediate assistance and/or counseling. We collect and interpret blood glucose readings within minutes of a member’s test; if their blood sugars are dangerously high or low, or trend poorly, we triage and assist them in bringing them back into the normal range. These near-real-time interactions at teachable moments significantly improves member’s results while reducing the likelihood of ER visits and hospitalizations, no less the impact on your member’s health.
Just about everything a mother does during her pregnancy can affect the baby’s growth and delivery. Many potential problems can be avoided or managed if recognized early. Nurses will work with the patient, their doctor, the hospital and the claims office to be sure that mother and baby receive the best care suitable to the situation.
Kidney Care and Dialysis Claim Management
MedWatch identifies members with CKD early in their disease process through our claims analysis and/or biometric programs and/or through an in/outpatient review. Catching that patient as early as possible and enrolling them in the Kidney Care Program can help prevent the progression of kidney disease to kidney failure. If the patient does progress to dialysis, MedWatch’s fully defensible cost containment services will reduce the cost by 60 to 85% of billed charges.
