U.S. Preventive Medicine Provides Health and Wellness Program for the National Labor Alliance
The announcement was made by USPM Vice Chairman, Dr. Ron Loeppke. U.S. Preventive Medicine is an accredited, award-winning workplace health program.
NLA Executive Director Doug Rubbelke stated, “More and more labor organizations are choosing to be proactive in providing their members with wellness and prevention services. The National Labor Alliance is pleased to introduce these innovative services to our members through U.S. Preventive Medicine to our members throughout the country. This move from reactive medicine to preventive medicine is the leading edge of workplace health and safety.”
“We applaud the NLA leadership for their health and wellbeing mission for workers and we are extremely pleased that the National Labor Alliance has chosen USPM as their prevention solution,” said Dr. Loeppke. “This decision was based on the clinical evidence of health improvement by users of The Preventive Plan and our high level of employee/members participation.”
The Preventive Plan provides three levels of preventive medicine. Primary prevention: Wellness, health promotion and education to maintain health. Secondary prevention: Screening for early detection/diagnosis of health conditions. Tertiary prevention: Early intervention with evidence-based care management to reduce complications and disability from health conditions.
Dr. Loeppke explains that “U.S. Preventive Medicine provides a wellness program that employs an evidence-based health assessment as well as biometric screening to identify member health risks. As a result, each member receives their own personal Preventive Score™. We then leverage technology that allows members to access their information at the desktop and on mobile devices. We introduce exercise and nutrition activities to drive member participation and we provide live-call health coaching to help members ultimately raise their Preventive Score. Through these efforts we are helping members gain a better understanding of their numbers by allowing them to actively participate in improving their health status and well-being.”
