Evidence-based health and well-being for entire populations.

Pro-Change Will Present at the CCA Conference

South Kingstown, RI – October 10, 2013.  The Care Continuum Alliance is hosting its annual conference, CCA Forum 2013, October 23-25 in Scottsdale, Arizona, with the theme, “The ROI of Population Health: Implementation Matters.” In their call for abstracts, the Care Continuum Alliance asked for “creativity, innovation, and inventiveness. Attendees want hands on learning and presentations that can demonstrate their usefulness for the population health management industry as a whole.”

In response, Sara Johnson, PhD, Senior Vice President at Pro-Change, will present on “Promoting Financial Well-Being: Why and How?” Sara will apply best practices in health promotion to designing and implementing financial well-being interventions. Potential consequences of financial distress for the individual and the employer will be discussed. Outcome measures to demonstrate effectiveness and potential return on investment will be identified.

Vice President Leanne Mauriello, PhD, will be one of six invited speakers at the Employers Training Institute at the Conference Workshop titled, “Know What You Pay For: Roadmap to Assess Success of Employers Offered Wellness Programs.” She will present on selecting and implementing successful behavior change programs for employees. Leanne will share best practices in achieving behavior change for employers. How to critically evaluate employer-based programs on quality and impact, and how to identify benchmarks for evaluating effectiveness will be illustrated.

Please join these presentations and meet Sara and Leanne if you are able to attend the CCA Forum.
