miCare offers a solution to help organizations address increasing costs of healthcare and benefit programs while improving workforce productivity, health and even morale.
According to Gallup, when a company increases employee and their dependents' engagement and well-being, it lowers medical costs and improves worker performance. Engaged individuals are generally in better health. They have lower incidences of chronic health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, diagnosed depression, and heart attacks. Likewise, engaged employees are therefore a lower healthcare liability to their employers. They have 46% fewer unhealthy days as a result of physical or mental illness, are 39% less likely to be diagnosed with a new disease in the next year, and are 43% less likely to be newly diagnosed with anxiety or depression. These findings add up to big savings for companies' medical costs and help boost productivity numbers.
These findings suggest that organizations that make an effort to improve their workers' healthcare engagement help employees improve the quality of their lives, minimizing the costs of decreased productivity. Most organizations make the miCare clinics available to dependents as well, improving the health and well-being of all members of the household. A healthier home translates to benefits in the workplace!
