August 18, 2014
Hosted by Robert Chamberlain
Employers are leading efforts to control their healthcare spend and improve the health of their workforce by looking at the risks unique to their population and creating the appropriate health initiatives to address them. To do this, many employers partner with local health systems but what happens when the company has multiple sites, worldwide? They hire a physician to provide the clinical oversight necessary to build a program based on personalized care. Join Robert and his guest, Dexter Shurney, MD, chief medical director/executive director for Global Benefits, Health and Wellness for Cummins, Inc., a worldwide company that designs, manufactures, distributes and services diesel and natural gas engines and related technologies. The company employs 48,000 in 190 countries, 24,000 of which are located in the U.S. The two will discuss Cummin’s major health initiative and the challenges of addressing the health needs of an employee population in multiple locations across the country.
