Title: Hearst Health Prize for Excellence in Population Health

Abstract

Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) Employee Health Services (EHS) is committed to promoting healthy, vibrant lives and embracing health. Since 1986, EHS has built a comprehensive, evidence-based program designed to measure and assess health risk prevalence, provide targeted and customizable services to address health risks, incentivize healthy behaviors, improve productivity, enhance quality of life, and lower healthcare costs for participants via collaboration between on-site and community-based providers. This unique partnership provides a broad scope of services that may not be available to employees solely through their health benefit plan, and allows a supportive, convenient approach that has proven enhanced health outcomes. EHS impacts over 12,000 SNL employees in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Corporate wellness is as important as ever as health issues and healthcare costs continue to rise. We use the 8-15-80 model as the foundation for our health program strategy: prevent or improve 8 modifiable behaviors and risks that contribute to 15 chronic health conditions that account for 80% of healthcare spending on chronic illnesses worldwide. We utilize patient-centered, cost-effective, community-connected care by providing free onsite services including the NCQA-recognized/AAAHC-accredited medical clinic, health management, preventive health, behavioral health, physical therapy, medical case management, acute care, emergency medical services, and more. Thesemore » programs and services are an employer-paid benefit open to all SNL employees. The organization combines best practices, accredited programs, and top health care providers to bring employees the most comprehensive approach to health care.« less
