The Need for the Health Care Engagement Index (HCEITM)
According to a survey conducted by Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health (NBGH), more than half (58%) of employers say the biggest obstacle to changing employee health-related behavior is the lack of employee engagement. That’s why we’ve worked to develop this powerful tool.
Track Record of Success
Our development of the DSS Health Engagement Index is based on over 35 years of experience and understanding of the health care consumer and the factors that contribute to their active engagement in their health care. Additionally, we’ve conducted specialized research and a number of exploratory surveys in this area that have provided us with solid science, advanced statistical modeling and four underlying constructs (health literacy, knowledge, attitudes and behavior). With analysis of more than 10 million consolidated claims records in relation to the index, we continuously work to refine the index based on deep learning and our own proprietary national work conducted on over more than 40 quarters for various subpopulations of interest.
At DSS, we do not depend on a single leader or a few leaders but on many leaders who head different teams and work groups within the company. Every leader has extensive experience, an in-depth understanding of the areas addressed by their team and a demonstrated leadership ability.
