Occupational Health: How to Better Manage Company Health Costs

Why Partner with WiseCare for Your Company’s Occupational Health Needs?

Are you a key business owner or executive responsible for employee wellness programs and health care? Or are you a Personnel Administrator or independent benefits brokerage firm looking for a local, convenient and quality occupational health program you can count on to reduce employee health care costs, increase productivity, and reduce absenteeism?

WiseCare’s Occupational Health Services are based on the belief that healthy employees are more productive and efficient employees. The main goal of an occupational health program is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families, and employers.

For these reasons, WiseCare provides affordable and convenient occupational health programs to local businesses.

Too many employees go straight to the emergency room (ER), or take all day off work while waiting in a doctor office – thus reducing their productivity on the job, and costing your business extra health care and other expenses, time and resources related to the impact of their absence. Traditional approaches are often reactive – that is, problems are addressed only after a worker is injured or becomes sick. Instead, consider WiseCare for its excellent reputation for swift, quality service along with a caring attitude.

We offer a local, premier customer-focused industrial occupational medicine program that uses a team approach to provide quality occupational health, safety and rehabilitation services that addresses your employee’s total health.

Recent studies indicate returns on investment in occupational health wellness programs for various companies ranging from $1.91:1 to $5.78:1.  General Electric’s aircraft engines division, for example, saves $1 million per year through its wellness programs. Traveler’s Corporation reported a $3.40 return for every dollar invested in health promotion, yielding total corporate savings of $146 million in benefits costs.

WiseCare can help your business realize true cost savings when you sign up for our Occupational Health Medicine Program.
