Corporate Programs

Slide 1 - Corporate ProgramsThe mission of Corporate Wellness Resources (CWR) is to provide new opportunities for self-funding institutions to reduce their healthcare utilization and costs through improving the health and performance of employees and other covered individuals. CWR offers unique and cost-effective large group programs to rapidly and significantly reduce and often eliminate chronic pain, stress, and symptoms of stress related illnesses, which are some of the highest healthcare cost drivers. Our philosophy is that health must be improved for healthcare utilization and costs to decrease. Our program methods and approaches have been proven in clinical studies to achieve these health improvements and increased performance, which can lead to substantial cost savings for payers of healthcare services (including corporations, governments, and other institutions). Program participants are provided tools for use after programs end to maintain and extend the health and performance benefits gained during programs. Thus, as healthcare utilization and costs are reduced and performance is improved over the long-term, profitability is further enhanced.

Every corporation has a unique culture and environment where human capital may be utilized in many different ways. CWR can tailor programs to meet the needs of clients by taking into account the unique characteristics of the workforce (work shifts, categories of workers, employee locations, etc.). We assist clients with the campaign to attract employees to our programs and help the employer target the most appropriate employees to attend. We work with clients to maximize the health of their workforce, even in those individuals with chronic and challenging conditions. We also help employers identify employee populations where cost savings can be optimized by program participation.

CWR group programs are delivered on site for maximum efficiency and convenience for our clients. Programs generally include 12-16 contact hours, including internet-based and telephonic learning. This occurs over a 6 to 10 week period to ensure that changes made by participants are long lasting. Pricing per participant can be substantially lower than costs for conventional medical interventions (e.g. physical therapy, surgeries and procedures, behavioral services, etc.) and often the need for these services is either reduced or eliminated (hence, cost savings).

Current CWR group programs represent the next generation of high performance, results-oriented programing with the latest enhancements developed by the CWR team (see Program Approaches tab). CWR uses a sophisticated computerized survey system to track health outcomes using validated measures. Some of the outcome measures assessed by surveys before program start, at the program end, and at intervals after program end include:

  • Acute and chronic pain, reduction and elimination (0-10 Numeric Rating Scale-NRS)
  • Stress, reduction and elimination (0-10 NRS and Perceived Stress Scale)
  • Disability (Oswestry Disability Inventory )
  • Sleep quality (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index)
  • Anxiety (0-10 NRS)
  • Depression symptoms (PHQ-9)
  • Fatigue (0-10 NRS)
  • Work Life Quality
  • Changes in medication usage
  • Reports of anonymous grouped data are provided to clients and CWR works with clients to assess cost saving achieved by program participants.

The team at Corporate Wellness Resources is dedicated to providing novel, results-oriented solutions by pushing the envelope with our evidence-based program development and outside-the-box thinking. This supports us in accomplishing our mission to deliver programs that produce substantial healthcare cost savings for self-funding entities by providing new opportunities to reduce their healthcare utilization through improving health and human performance.
