Benefits of Investing in the Dossia Solution

The Dossia Solution

It’s no secret that rising healthcare costs pose a serious threat to the global competitiveness of U.S. companies. In response to this increasing cost pressure, many companies are taking new approaches to benefit design that aim at delivering higher-value health care services to employees, including implementing workplace wellness programs, value-based insurance design, and consumer-directed health plans.

In order for these new health care design paradigms to be successful in lowering healthcare spending, employers must engage their employees as partners in their health and care, and equip them with tools necessary to make better health and healthcare decisions. With the plethora of tools currently on the market, HR departments have a daunting task of identifying which ones will not only be effective in lowering healthcare spending, but also, those that will manage to successfully engage their employees.

The Dossia Health Management System integrates aggregated personal health information with best in class health and healthcare tools, as well as multiple user engagement components to offer a rich and personalized experience.

By combining these customized solutions into a single intelligent platform and powering them with real personal health data, the Dossia system enables unprecedented personalization and offers superior value to the user.

Dossia further augments the value of these solutions by adding a layer of engagement, comprised of game and social dynamics, incentives and messaging in order to foster sustained user engagement, behavior change and value to employers.

The Dossia Value

Healthier and more productive employees reduce healthcare costs for themselves and your company. Equipped with their own Dossia health tools, your employees become more active participants in their health and healthcare. This leads to improved health outcomes, more efficient care, reduced healthcare costs, reduced absenteeism, and increased employee productivity, morale, and retention. A corporate culture of health and wellness helps employees and employers alike.

How is this achieved?

Dossia delivers an entire ecosystem of health solutions that address all of your major healthcare cost drivers. Within this ecosystem, numerous health applications are delivered that are personally tailored to each employee based on their aggregated health information. These applications:

  • Enable employees to pursue a healthy lifestyle, prevent disease, and self-manage chronic conditions to reduce the need for care.
  • Identify and suggest high value procedures and providers for upcoming appointments.
  • Identify the most cost-effective treatment options to inform cost-conscious consumers how to eliminate wasteful spending.
