We partner with employers to:

  • Build a culture of health that improves the attitudes and behaviors of your workforce
  • Craft a health management solution that works for you based on your needs, goals and budget
  • Improve the health of your population and report outcomes

We function as an accountable business partner that tracks our own performance, not a wellness vendor who only provides services.

Our products and services include:

  • Assessment and strategic design. We provide an objective assessment of the current state of your company around wellness. Information gathered from the organizational assessment drives the development of the strategic plan that delivers the best results for your company over time.
  • Population health assessment. The health status and well-being of individuals and populations are measured through a validated questionnaire assessing dimensions of health and safety behaviors. The survey measures physical functioning as well as social, emotional and mental health and is provided to individuals and reported to the employer as an aggregate for program planning.
  • Health coaching interventions. A health coach is a partner who provides the structure, accountability, expertise and inspiration to enable people to learn, grow and develop beyond what they can do alone. Our certified health coaches build personal relationships with your employees by asking insightful questions that lead to powerful conversations.
  • Health engagement and education. Through our programs you can provide direct assistance to employees by offering fun ways to engage, learn new strategies and make lasting healthy changes. We offer workshops, seminars, behavior change programs and action campaigns.
  • Wellness coordination services. A wellness coordinator, who will be assigned to your site, will get to know and understand your organization and serve as a liaison between the company and the vast resources of IU Health and the community.
