Why Wellness Fails

This online presentation is from one done on November 12, 2015 to the FENG – Sugar Land / Katy Group. We recorded the audio and then added the slides to it.

As the introductory slide states, there is one thing I want you to know after watching this presentation:

Wellness Fails at Controlling Medical Costs.

It fails for three reasons:

  • Sameness
  • Research???
  • Blame Game

I cover each of these during the presentation.

One-sentence conclusion

Wellness can produce positive results but executives and decision makers must do their due diligence in selecting the right vendor.

In responding to a question about supplements, I referred to the Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act of 1994.

During the Q&A, I referred to JAMA article published in September 2015. By adding an additional test to their screening (HbA1c) they concluded that more than 50% of the US adult population has some form of diabetes: diagnosed, undiagnosed or pre-diabetes. You can read more about this in our article: Your organization needs a type 2 diabetes strategy. Here’s why, or you can read this one: Type 2 Diabetes is Killing Your Company.
