Rapidly rising health care costs are a major concern to employers of all sizes – leading to the need to become proactive in reducing insurance costs by working to improve the health of their workforce. For many companies, a key focus is to engage employees and motivate them to play an active role in their health and well-being.
Beyond Weight, the Beyond Care licensing division, offers clinically validated predictive tools that are designed to help each employee understand their personal risk for diabetes, cardiovascular illness and related diseases. Once motivated the “at risk” employees can be enrolled into clinically proven preventive care and wellness programs targeting obesity and its complications.
The Beyond Care licensing division, Beyond Weight, has been established to provide a vehicle for hospitals to address the obesity epidemic while generating new revenue opportunities. Too often, hospitals view outreach programs as a community service or a loss-leader program for patient aggregation. The Beyond Weight programs go far beyond those goals – serving to create good will in the community, identify prospective patients and be profitable.
Overweight and obese people have extensive healthcare needs beyond those related to the metabolism. Bringing such patients into the hospital for metabolic rehab can provide downstream revenue directly and indirectly, potentially encompassing a variety of disciplines and service lines including infertility, women’s health, cardiovascular medicine, orthopedics and others as well.
Beyond Weight Metabolic Rehab ™ programs will help attract and retain patients and grow volume and offer a much needed service. Whether your institution’s strength is in bariatric surgery, cardiovascular disease or diabetes-related services, you will benefit from offering a credentialed and clinically validated weight loss program.
