Corporate Wellness is Expanding and so is NutriTutor
NutriTutor® and Myewellness have joined forces to bring to life the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) standards for diabetes and chronic disease management helping companies with Corporate Wellness Programs.
NBCH - http://www.nbch.org - is one such organization—
Corporate wellness is a new industry”, states Laurie Van Wyckhouse, NutriTutor CEO and master trained registered dietitian. “As such, the industry is brimming with sub-standard services. The NBCH is changing all of that by providing employers with tools to objectively evaluate wellness services.” The NBCH publishes chronic disease management benchmarks that help companies invest wisely in employee health; insuring such things as evidence-based programming, standardized performance measures, and informed consumer decision-making.
“We are very excited about our partnership with NutriTutor”, states Chris Barr, of Myewellness. “We chose NutriTutor® to round out our service collection because they are the world’s leading provider of NBCH-compatible medical disease management e-training.”
Many companies like GE and Wells Fargo are begining to see a huge savings and cost reduction for having a Corporate Wellness Program. Depending on the size and specific cost of healthcare and insurance plans the savings can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars per year. The Time is now to have a corporate wellness plan in place before more shifts and cuts come in healthcare. Especially with the rise in diabetes and chronic diseases states a Gallop Pole - from the Healthways well being index. Over 37 million people is predicted to have diabetes by 2015 which is 15% of the population. Employers need to take a harder look at a wellness program that encourages and includes screeings for the employee's, that way any company can put the proper wellness program in place. Everyone benefits with a proper wellness program states Barr from My e Wellness - the employees health and the company's bottom line.
