Episode Description

Health Systems interested in providing valuable, preventative service within their communities are working with local employers to create initiatives that improve population health. Many of these initiatives begin with risk-stratification processes and include onsite health centers, clinician engagement, employee rewards, new technology components and system service lines. What are the results of these one-on-one relationships? Improved health outcomes for employees and reduced claims’ expenditure for employers. It can also mean increased market share and downstream revenue for the system. Join Robert and his guest, Dan Birach, president of the HEALTHWORKS Division at Carolinas HealthCare System, a public, not-for-profit system headquartered in Charlotte, operating 900 locations throughout North and South Carolina. The two will discuss HEALTHWORKS’ relationship with local businesses, the elements needed to improve community health outcomes and the division's impact on the system.
