SPH’s Health Care Engagement Index (HCEITM) is a metric that tells you where your members, patients or employees are in the health care engagement continuum – providing insight on how to move them toward higher levels of engagement in their health care.
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.
The Health Engagement Index is based on over 35 years of experience and understanding of the health care consumers and the factors that contribute to their active engagement in their health care. Additionally, we’ve conducted specialized research and exploratory surveys in this area that have provided solid science, advanced statistical modeling and four underlying constructs:
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.
