Employer-Centric Workforce Health Strategies

Over 81% of employers with 100 or more employees offer some kind of employee wellbeing program.  Some programs are simple, and some are more complex, but common to all is the employer’s desire to promote health and lower heath benefit expense.  It is a multi-billion-dollar marketplace with a mind-numbing number of “wellness” vendors competing for the business.  Yet, they all lack three important qualities.


For an individual, the highest quality care is best obtained through a relationship with a community-based healthcare provider. Just as a hands-on relationship with a local provider familiar with one’s medical and family history, lifestyle and individual preferences is key to individual health, so too is the relationship between an employer’s workforce and the local health system.

Using Applied Health Analytics’ technology, health systems become the subject matter expert on the health characteristics of the workforce and partner with employers to create the optimal alignment between risk profile and health enhancement resources. . . all delivered locally.


In an emergency, we all turn to the local health system for care. Health systems are valued members of the community and relied upon to provide quality care for our loved ones. Like no other “vendor,” health systems offering employers population health initiatives that link risk with appropriate local resources have time and again, proven to be the preferred provider of these services because they are known and trusted.

Applied Health Analytics understands the power of the brand and builds upon this knowledge to position the client health system as the best-in-class provider of workforce wellbeing initiatives within the community it serves.


Applied Health Analytics’ technology platforms have been reviewed, selected, and trusted by leading healthcare executives from premier organizations across the United States. For years, health systems have relied upon Applied Health Analytics’ experience and technology to support their direct-to-employer service line and gain a competitive advantage over rival systems.

The Company’s insatiable desire to push the limits of technology and deliver service excellence to its health system partners is at the heart of its mission. The ingestion of data sets, accumulation of knowledge, creation of workflows, engagement of members and measurement of impact are all fundamental to Applied Health Analytics’ and its health system partner’s success.

“Our commercial strategy is front-and-center to achieving our payor mix objectives. Last year, we touched over 41,445 employees through our HRA, on-site screening events, coaching capability and the closing of care gaps. Primary care physician referrals were up considerably and represented annual recurring revenue of $9.8 million.”

Tactics for Success

Our expertise in optimizing the reach and impact of commercial market health initiatives has benefited thousands of employers and millions employees across the United States.

Our D2E strategy includes a proprietary health risk assessment.

Health Risk Assessment

Through our partnership with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Applied Health Analytics has developed one of the most utilized and respected proprietary health risk assessments (HRA) available in the United States.  We’re able to provide valuable insight into individual health risks and overall wellbeing. Our evidence based HRA is sensitive to the cultural needs of an employer, and returns valuable personal, demographic, health history, behavioral and screening examination information unique to each individual employee.

Biometric screenings collect invaluable statistics to help us work to develop a successful strategy.


On-site health screenings collect biometric values and fuel Applied Health Analytics’ risk-stratification engine. When biometric data is combined with information obtained through the HRA, it provides an accurate understanding of health risks, and using proprietary technology automatically, aligns appropriate health enhancement interventions, services, and resources. Coupled with health system services, biometric information provides valuable insights into the individual and aggregate workforce health risks.

Unlocking the Power of Data with Applied Health Analytics


Proprietary algorithms, HRA, biometric and claims data provide a prescriptive view and overall snapshot of the health characteristics unique to a given population, cohort or individual.  Our data engine provides accurate analysis that empowers wellbeing plan design, solution integration and targeting, member engagement outcome measurement.

Actionable health data drives market share


Applied Health Analytics’ risk-stratification engine identifies the health characteristics of individuals using health history, biologic risk factors, behavioral profile, gaps in care, and recommends the most appropriate alignment of health system services, products, partnerships or physician affiliation.

Member Engagement and Positive Outcomes: The Power of Personal Connection.


Member engagement and positive outcomes result from of one-on-one interaction between a participating employee and their health system representative. Health system ‘coaches’ help employees manage goals, report progress, record
patient history and encourage attaining incentives for reaching goals. Hospitals and health systems advance the impact of employer-sponsored health initiatives by aligning health professional resources with individual needs all accomplished within Applied
Health Analytics technology platform, advancing the interests of both the employer and sponsoring health system.

We hold our strategy accountable for meeting and exceeding your goals
