HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - July 29, 2014) - Dynamic Health Strategies (DHS) announces that the company has entered into a product development and marketing agreement for a Return on Investment (ROI) module for the Cerner Wellness platform. The DHS system will be a cloud-based system that tracks the ROI of the Cerner Wellness solution. The system will be an optional module to the Cerner Wellness platform and upgradeable to the full DHS HealthSpective system.
Wellness programs are being widely utilized to address rising healthcare costs and to assist employees with taking charge of their health. Wellness systems have a lot of promise to reduce healthcare benefit costs but need to be monitored for their ROI. The DHS system will help clients monitor and tweak their wellness initiatives to maximize their effectiveness.
"Cerner's agreement with DHS gives our clients the opportunity to enhance their member programs by quickly pinpointing problem areas," said Ken Kaufman, general manager of Cerner Wellness. "With actionable intelligence, administrators and wellness coordinators can use data to help high-risk populations, make recommendations and improve overall well-being."
The goal of this agreement is to bring transparency of wellness programs to the forefront. The DHS system will identify early opportunities for wellness intervention, and Cerner will provide feedback on program results to measure effectiveness and ROI.
"Cerner is a proven leader in the wellness field," said Jim Pritchett, CEO of Dynamic Health Strategies. "We look forward to providing a module for Cerner Wellness that assists with clinical decision making, evidence-based care and member engagement."
