FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Generations Health Partners (GenerationsHP) selects Empliant to Power New Integrated Health Benefits and Health Care Management Program to Control Health Care Costs and improve Employee health and wellness.
CHAPEL HILL, NC - July 1, 2011 - Empliant, Inc., announced today that GenerationsHP has selected Empliant's Qualifying Health Activities Reimbursement Software (QHARS) application to help manage GenerationsHP's integrated health benefits and health management medical plan for its growing client base.
GenerationsHP's innovative health management program assigns employees and family members to different levels of health plan reimbursement, based on participants completing periodic qualifying health management activities, such as a Health Risk Appraisal, Wellness Exam, Age-Based Health Management Screening, and Disease Management Screenings.
Using Empliant's self-service QHARS, participants enter their qualifying health management activity information as part of the annual online enrollment process. The QHARS calculates (in real-time) the plan reimbursement level for which the participant and each family member qualifies. Built-in workflow enables plan administrators to confirm and approve participant qualification.
"Employees appreciate how convenient it is to use Empliant's self-service, Internet-based enrollment system to enter and maintain their qualifying health management activities," said Terri Goodman, Chief Operating Officer/IT for GenerationsHP. "Empliant successfully deployed the QHARS software application for 3 GenerationsHP clients in the seond half of 2011. The application provides our client's with all the participant data needed to manage eligibility for our new myChoice consumer driven health care program. Since Empliant provides electronic interfaces with our health care management vendors, we can manage the entire process online, and the reduction of paper forms has produced additional administrative savings".
The Center for Prevention and Health Services at the National Business Group on Health estimates that every $100 per employee invested in preventive services will produce a $300 return in averted treatment costs. With its proactive approach that integrates Health Benefits with Health Management, GHP expects its clients to reduce annual medical cost increases by more than 50 percent.
