Active Health: CCA Members Employee Wellness Showcase

Empowering better health and wellness: A member success story

Meet Joe.* At 200 pounds, Joe realized he was overweight. He wanted to start eating right and exercising, but he couldn’t seem to find a way to make these activities a priority. Fortunately, Joe connected with ActiveHealth and gained support that helped him lose 40 pounds. Today he is healthier, happier and has reduced his risk for a variety of chronic conditions.

As a leading provider of integrated population health improvement services, ActiveHealth Management partners with employers to develop customized solutions that empower better health and wellness. We have recently enhanced our offerings by developing a multi-modal and personalized approach to health improvement. Joe is one of those members we were able to connect with and help along each step of his unique journey.NEWM_2013_Supporter_Logo_f

ActiveHealth’s Care Engine® technology continuously reviews population health data and matches it with evidence-based clinical best practices to proactively identify gaps in care and opportunities to improve employee health. This system identified Joe, who had significant risk factors because of his sedentary lifestyle and the fact that he was 40 pounds overweight. ActiveHealth also captured Joe’s preference for one-on-one support through self-reported data. As a result, he was immediately referred to an ActiveHealth coaching program.   

A health coach connected with Joe to help him develop a personalized roadmap to reach his wellness goals. Our coaches are expertly trained at building strong relationships with individuals and determining the right course of action to meet their unique challenges. In Joe’s case, he needed help implementing an exercise plan, staying motivated and dealing with stress. His health coach helped him set realistic goals and provided the tools, information and support he needed.

Joe also had access to other ActiveHealth programs and services, including a completely refreshed online portal, on-site biometric screenings, mobile health applications, employee communications, incentive programs and much more.  Wherever Joe is, he has access to the guidance and resources he needs to stay on the path to better health. In addition, the tools give employers visibility into the impact the programs are having on population health so they can also see the success.

Over a nine month period, Joe reached a weight of 178 pounds. His early success, along with ongoing support from his ActiveHealth lifestyle coach, continues to motivate him to make positive lifestyle changes.
