Pathway to Wellness
As a more robust, comprehensive wellness solution, Ochsner has developed “Pathway to Wellness,” which will be customized for your organization.
Pathway to Wellness components include:
Wellness Program Management and Portal
We will partner with your organization to design a three-year wellness strategy, including a wellness operating plan, implementation of quarterly activity challenges, navigating employees in scheduling their medical care, and guidance for your Wellness Committee.
Through this comprehensive program, your employer will have access to the Virgin Pulse portal, which uses pedometers to validate employees' daily activity. Also available is the Health Zone, which is a tool to help measure blood pressure, weight, and BMI.
You will also have a part time Wellness Coordinator to help you create a culture of wellness and help implement the Wellness Program.
To help employees identify potential health problems through on-site measurements of health factors such as cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI) and nurse consultation.
Health Risk Assessment, Risk Stratification and Reporting
We help each employee learn about his or her health status through an online health risk assessment. The resulting health status is determined through employee biometric data along with employee responses to questions about health behaviors and habits. The online program also provides aggregate data on organizational health trends and shows percentages of employees that are low, medium, or high risk for developing chronic illnesses. Our wellness coordinator and health coaches will partner with you to determine intervention strategies and improve your company’s wellness strategy.

Ochsner’s quarterly “Hello Health at Work” seminars are presented by physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and other health professionals on topics of interest. These topics can be tailored to what is most appropriate for your company’s specific health risks.
In addition, we will provide electronic monthly newsletters and articles addressing monthly health topics, specific risks, and points of interest as requested.
Nurse Navigation and Physician Appointment Scheduling
A registered nurse is available 24/7 to answer health care questions, as well as helping your employees schedule their appointments.
Incentive Design and Implementation
Your wellness coordinator will help to develop an incentive program that will help to develop an employer contribution and incentive program, which can be used to reduce employees’ insurance premiums, or other types of incentives, such as gift cards.
