The goal of the Personal HealthConnect program is to manage medical costs and improve clinical outcomes by actively engaging members in improving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), up to 75 percent of health care costs are attributed to preventable diseases, many of which arise from unhealthy lifestyles. With health care costs increasing at a rate of 8-14 percent annually, employers cannot afford to ignore these statistics.
Preferred Health Care (PHC) developed Personal HealthConnect as a solution to help companies manage the continued increase in health plan costs. With the average full-time employee spending more than one-third of their life at work, it makes the workplace the ideal setting to establish a member-specific wellness plan that can be followed at work and home.
By developing this program, it enhanced our own PHC health plan, as well as our clients’ efforts to engage their members and decrease their overall health plan costs.
Personal HealthConnect is a service of PHC, the preferred PPO for over 30 years with strong roots within the Central Pennsylvania community. To learn more about Preferred Health Care, please visit www.phcunity.com.
