Data-based Decisions Lead to Employer’s Reduced Medical Spend

Employers want reduced medical spend waste. For the last six years, Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana has accomplished that through data-based decisions and partner collaboration.

“Back in 2012 when I started working with Goodwill, the discussion was around changing their story from an acute approach in their use of the medical system to a pro-active planned approach,” Vital Incite President, Mary Delaney. “I am proud to say, that has been accomplished and we have proven that we can provide better health outcomes with efficient use of healthcare.”

The Six-year Journey Reaps Decline in Medical Spend will be co-presented by Vital Incite President, Mary Delaney, and Senior Director, Total Rewards of Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana, Lisa Allen.

It will first be shared at the International Society of Certified Employee Benefits Symposium (ISCEBS) in Boston, on August 29, 2018, from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.

On September 6, 2018, from 1:40 pm – 2:40 pm, Delaney and Allen will share the presentation at the 2018 Indiana Health and Wellness Summit in Indianapolis.

“These decisions have allowed funds to be available for employee wellness and other programs,” said Allen. “It will be a privilege to share our journey with other employee benefits professionals.”
