eBooks & Webinars

Hospital Systems and other Healthcare Providers have unique needs - and unique capabilities - when it comes to employee wellness programs. Here at Extracon, we've spent the last 7 years working with clinics and healthcare systems of all sizes from 250 employees up to 20,000 - and now we can share with you a set of best practices for employee wellness in a healthcare setting.
You'll learn how to leverage your in-house capabilities to run a more comprehensive and engaging program. You'll learn how to build a culture of health that values employees as much as it values your patients. And you'll learn how to take employee wellness out to the community, building market share and brand recognition for your organization.

Our 2017 Survey shows that wellness programs are ready to move beyond using the M.D. as a biometric screener, and start collaborating with the employee's primary care doctor for follow-up.
In this webinar and eBook, you'll learn the new strategies that wellness leaders are ready to start implementing - for biometric follow-up, prevention gaps, and incentives.

We're pleased to present a new eBook with case studies and results from our clients who are making the employee's doctor a key part of the wellness program.
They had outstanding results across thousands of participants, including biometric improvement and prevention gaps closed.
This eBook also provides answers to the most common questions about including the doctor – including program design, HIPAA compliance, and ensuring doctors do their part.

Employees who are engaged in their healthcare have lower costs and better health outcomes. Over 30 studies prove it. So why isn’t employee wellness building a better patient?
This live webinar explores how you can give participants the knowledge, skills and motivation to work with their primary care doctor on prevention and wellbeing. And deliver measurable results in health risk reduction and biometric improvement.
We’ll share a holistic approach that integrates employee wellness with primary care, lifestyle change and mobile technology.

Most employee wellness programs don't collaborate with the employee's doctor. And yet, working with the doctor is their best opportunity to close prevention gaps and follow up on biometrics.
We explain why traditional programs haven’t included the physician – and what’s changed. We discuss the research showing that employees who work with their primary care doctor on prevention have lower healthcare costs and better health.
A Pragmatic Approach: We'll show you a pragmatic approach for including the physician that's been proven across thousands of participants, with 98% of physicians doing their part to coordinate with the wellness program.

Is your wellbeing program collaborating with your employee's doctors to close prevention gaps and follow up on biometrics?
Are you using the smartphones in your employees' pockets to drive measurable changes in year-round physical activity and BMI?
This webinar shows how wellness programs can transform their results for prevention, biometrics, and lifestyle by successfully integrating the doctor and the smartphone into the program.

Can you run a better employee wellness program by not doing anything onsite? Find out how in our webinar, "Onsite Wellness vs. All-Digital".
You'll learn how you can do more comprehensive prevention, better biometric followup, and more validated lifestyle programs by going all-Digital.
Spoiler alert: the secret is how you work with the employee's primary care doctor and integrate apps & devices into your program.
The webinar includes a case study from our customer Connectivity Wireless - and their award winning, 100% Digital Wellness Program.

Listen to 3 organizations discuss practical ways to deliver better wellness programs with more engagement and less administrative work.
Every great employee wellness program has a combination of design, communication and technology. Employers and wellness vendors want to know what works.
We will focus on three organizations that each had different needs, and how they went about selecting and implementing an approach for their unique needs.

Our 2016 Effectiveness Survey is complete.
We found a gap between the effective wellness programs employers want – and what they are doing today. We call it the effectiveness gap.
We use the survey responses to explore what kind of program would really work - and what costs and barriers are standing in the way.
Finally, we offer some suggestions for how employers can make the leap to a more effective program.

Improvements in smartphones over the last 2 years have put Apps at a tipping point for use in employee wellness programs.
Using Wellness Portal Apps, employers can eliminate the need for step-tracking devices, onsite weigh-ins, and paper physician forms and faxes. Because these Apps are designed for employee wellness programs, employers can avoid the advertising and mixed messages that make consumer Apps problematic.
The right App and incentive strategy can be your ticket to biometric improvement, validated lifestyle change, and year-round engagement.

We take an in-depth look at the 6 Dragons and how you can use online portals and integrated apps to run a better program with less administrative effort.
We will show you how the right platform can help you run a wellness program with validated data, better results, and less manual administrative work.

A Frankenstein wellness program is what happens when the different pieces of your program aren’t working together.
Some signs you may have a Frankenstein program: You’re spending hours putting data into Excel and trying to make it add up into a coherent picture; you’re spending lots of time creating content and managing email lists so the right message goes to the right participant; and perhaps you’re even worried that your program is going to turn on you – with participants and leadership saying your numbers don’t really add up.
Feeling like you’ve created a monster? We can help. We explain what a Frankenstein program is, what problems it can cause, and what to do about it. This Webinar and eBook are for health promotion leaders at employers, health plans, and wellness companies.

It's true: most wellness programs aren’t successful at building a culture of health. That's because of the limitations of typical culture audits and culture-change strategies.

You’ll learn a set of key strategies for building a healthy culture that’s measurable and sustainable. You’ll learn how to adapt your existing programs to be more effective in changing the culture, and how to evaluate new program ideas for culture impact.
