Innovative Healthcare Benefits that Employers Can Offer

Employers are always looking for innovative ways to provide better healthcare benefits for their members. This can include new technology, improved care delivery models, and expanded coverage options.

Prioritizing Preventative Care

One area of focus is preventative care. By offering regular wellness visits, screenings, and vaccinations, patients can avoid more serious health issues down the line. Telemedicine services can allow remote access to healthcare providers, and wellness incentive programs can encourage healthy lifestyle choices.

Focus on Behavioral Health

Mental health services are just as important as physical health services. Providing access to behavioral health services can help members better manage stress and other mental health issues, resulting in better health outcomes and reduced absenteeism. Digital mental health tools and employee assistance programs offer confidential support to members and their families.

Digital Health Tools

Mobile apps, wearables, online portals, and other digital health tools can help patients better assess, monitor, and treat various health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and sports injuries. Innovative methods for treating chronic autoimmune skin conditions, like psoriasis and eczema are also gaining popularity, as nearly one in 10 people suffer from a chronic autoimmune skin condition1.

Zerigo’s handheld phototherapy device allows members to treat their symptoms anytime, anywhere. Meanwhile, the Zerigo app manages their prescription dosing and treatment frequency and ZerigoCare™ Guides provide one-to-one support to your employees on their journey to clearer skin2.

Care Delivery Models

Value-based care models offer rewards for positive health outcomes, leading to improved care coordination and reduced healthcare costs. Direct primary care involves patients paying a monthly fee for access to primary care services, resulting in better access to care and reduced out-of-pocket costs.

Employers who prioritize innovation in their healthcare benefits are likely to see improved health outcomes for their members and reduced healthcare costs over time.
