San Diego, November 27, 2018: MediKeeper, a leading provider of customizable wellness portals to healthcare providers, insurance brokers, wellness companies, TPAs, and corporate employers, today announced their annual list of emerging trends in the Employee Wellness market for 2019.
MediKeeper’s report highlights four key trends that that are likely to transform the industry, impact employee engagement, and influence employee wellness programs in the coming year:
- Intelligent Personalization – Taking personalization to the next level, intelligent personalization allows companies to make more informed decisions based on understanding risks and their causes and identifying what is driving present and future cost.
- Social Recognition – Workplace wellness programs will implement a multitude of ways to include social recognition that fosters a team-oriented atmosphere intended to encourage people to perform to the best of their abilities.
- Virtual Wellness – As companies continue to veer away from the traditional 9-to-5 work schedule and promote the ability to work remotely or set flexible hours, the importance of offering “virtual” wellness programming will grow.
- Smarter Analytics – Analytics that layers data from biometrics, incentives, health risk assessments and challenges with actionable measures will make it easier for companies to get a better understanding of the effectiveness of their wellness program.
The trends identified by MediKeeper were based on data generated from the 1,100 client organizations and more than 3 million lives covered by MediKeeper.
David Ashworth, CEO of MediKeeper said “Embracing change and knowing what organizations need to keep driving wellness offerings forward in the next few years will help them lay the groundwork for building stronger employee wellness programs and increasing employee engagement. With healthcare costs on the rise, companies that pay attention to these key trends, will have the greatest success investing in their employees’ overall well-being.”
