A UPMC study reviewing 18075 employees has shown that businesses can reap significant healthcare savings when providing meaningful incentives and comprehensive services (including chronic disease management) to their employees.

“The study focused on two groups: an intervention group composed of 13,627 UPMC workers who were continuously enrolled in MyHealth, UPMC’s chronic disease-management and wellness program, and a comparison group consisting of 4,448 workers employed at a different healthcare organization who had UPMC Health Plan benefits, but not the MyHealth program.”
