Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (2004) studies show that up to 67% of health care costs are preventable and due to unhealthy behaviors. In other words, 67% of your risk factors could be reduced or eliminated with lifestyle changes.
Based on our health promotion clients' results (2003-2005), you can estimate that your group will reduce 30% of its risk factors and eliminate 16% of its risk factors over one year with our pre- and post-health screenings and personal wellness coaching.
For every dollar invested in health promotion, the savings in medical costs and absenteeism range from $2.30 to $10.10, based on a review of 378 studies (Hope Health Special Report, 2003).
National Employee Assistance Program (EAP) research shows ROI ranging from $5.00-14.00 per dollar invested, based on studies at Abbott Laboratories, Burlington Railroad, Kemper, U.S. Postal Services, and NY Transit Authority (University of Michigan, 20th Century Cost Benefit Analysis and Report, 2000).
