INDIANA, Penn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Indiana Regional Medical Center, a non-profit institution located in Indiana County, has engaged Aegis Health Group to assist in its efforts to expand their population health management programs. The new initiative will focus on building relationships with area employers, aligning their needs with appropriate hospital programs that improve workforce health, lower health-related costs and support the hospital’s mission of creating healthier communities.
“We feel the hospital plays an important role in the community, providing care to all segments of our population,” said Stephen A. Wolfe, president and CEO of Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC). “In partnership with Aegis, we can more effectively reach out to local business and community groups, helping them with one of their biggest challenges – the high cost of healthcare – as we identify and address health risks before they become critical or result in costly healthcare claims.”
Aegis will support the non-profit institution which is the sole full-service healthcare provider in their county, with a portfolio of proprietary resources and technology. One of the innovative tools IRMC will offer employers is OneCommunity, a hospital branded, population health website. It allows users to track their health and wellness activities online and employers to anticipate and mitigate workforce health risks using services offered by the hospital.
“One notable benefit of OneCommunity, it makes it easy and engaging for employees to access healthcare information and guidance, keeping them involved in their personal health. Employers also benefit from a management application that streamlines rewards and incentive tracking, particularly important considering the latest ACA wellness program rules,” says Phil Suiter, president and CEO of Aegis Health Group. “Our solutions are designed to help strengthen IRMC’s position as the provider of choice in their market while positively impacting their market share.”
