New York, NY – ActiveHealth, a health care company that delivers well-being and medical management solutions to employers, governments and health plans, announces the third-party validation of a cost savings study1 demonstrating a 3.6:1 return-on-investment for year 2 of their solution. The results were primarily driven by a 20% reduction in inpatient costs for identified members resulting in medical costs savings of $27.49 per identified member per month.
Validation Institute is an independent, objective, third-party organization that applies measurement standards and plausibility tests to clinical and financial results published by health care vendors. Their goal is to make it easier for purchasers to make confident and informed decisions.
“We are committed to making it easier for employers to identify and work with high performance solution providers,” said Sue Morrell, General Manager at Validation Institute. “We are pleased to announce that ActiveHealth’s well-being solution has completed our rigorous validation process to achieve a level 1 savings validation.”
The validated study was a non-randomized, intent-to-treat, retrospective cohort study with a study group of 14,077 commercial members identified for the program in 2018 and 2019 and a control group of 37,840 commercial members without the solution but who met the identification criteria. The statistical significance threshold used was p <= .1.
“Well-being is about supporting all members, not only those who are already engaged in their health,” said Dr. Mohamed Diab, CEO of ActiveHealth. “Our work with at-risk, vulnerable members makes results like these possible.”
