But how do you effectively translate program evaluation data into a meaningful story of value for stakeholders at all levels of the organization? This HERO members’ gathering–including top thought leaders, industry innovators, and experienced managers from best practice companies–features an intimate, small group format to discuss emerging research and inform HERO’s research agenda.

This webinar shares insights and implications of the published report including:

  • How resilience is defined and measured;
  • What elements comprise an evidence-based resilience training program;

Culture of Health Case Study: Maui Jim

Engaged employees are at the heart of any successful business, and for employers, that increasingly means creating a healthy workplace culture that supports  multiple facets of employee well-being. But how is a “healthy culture” defined and what does it look like? HERO’s Culture of Health Study Committee is working on a case study project focusing on employers that actively foster a healthy workplace culture, one that is intentionally designed with elements and indicators that support employee health and well-being. Our most recently published case study highlights the fantastic culture of Maui Jim and their emphasis on treating employees as family. The culture of wellness is built around two Hawaiian expressions: “‘ohana” and “aloha.” The expression,”ohana” means “family”, that families are bound together. The aloha spirit is the backbone of Hawaiian family culture, which embraces respect, trust, integrity, and creativity. Want to hear more about Maui Jim’s culture of health?

During 2018, each monthly Brief will include a member profile where we ask our guest to answer three questions we believe other members would be interested in learning more about. 

Our second member profile features Gregg Gascon, PhD, CHDA, Clinical Data Scientist, OhioHealth Group Clinically Integrated Network.

  1. What is a key focus for your health and well-being initiatives in the coming months?

At the OhioHealth Group we’re focused on implementing six bundled payments in 2018 retrospectively and in 2019 as a single bill visible to members. To support the efforts of the physicians, nurses and other health care professionals, we’ve analyzed several levers to improve the efficiency of medical procedures and optimize patient outcomes. By capturing procedural data by episode, we’re working with our clinical guidance councils to share the results of care transformations with providers to facilitate performance and quality improvement. We’re also bringing a condition-based bundle to our employee health plan this year that will emphasize non-surgical pathways for knee osteoarthritis treatments that feature some of the latest work in regenerative orthopedic medicine. Lastly, we’re completing program evaluations of our asthma and diabetes management programs as well as our diabetes prevention program in an effort to improve the health of those populations. Read more.
