Episode Description

As employers in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida continue to provide health benefits to an increasingly less healthy workforce, they are looking for ways to reduce rising healthcare costs, while managing Workers’ Compensation claims, lowering absentee rates and improving productivity. However, these employers lack the necessary expertise and resources to engage their workforce and help them make meaningful changes to their health. Join Robert and his guests, Roland Garcia, senior vice president and CIO at Baptist Health, George Babish, senior vice president of Organizational Advancement at The YMCA of Florida’s First Coast and Gene Lane, vice president at Applied Health Analytics. Baptist Health and The First Coast YMCA have created a joint venture to address the population health needs in Northeast Florida. We will discuss the partnership of these two prolific not-for-profits, its LLC, Corporate Health and the resulting initiative called PATH, Personalized Approach to Health.
