PatientBond: Behavior Change Through Psychology + Technology

PatientBond: Increase Employee Participation in Workplace Wellness Programs to Drive ROI

The Society for Human Resource Management indicates that every dollar invested in employee health intervention could potentially yield as much as $6 in healthcare savings. Unfortunately, while these programs should yield significant returns on this investment, employee participation in wellness programs is generally low.

PatientBond can increase employee participation in workplace wellness programs, screenings and health interventions to improve key metrics associated with productivity and reduced costs. 

What is PatientBond?

PatientBond is a platform for driving digital, personalized engagement across an employee population using email, text messaging and Interactive Voice Response.  PatientBond is a managed service so there is no software or staff training necessary.  PatientBond is cloud-based and connects with a client’s administrative system via a simple API.

How Does It Work?

PatientBond uses a proprietary model based on psychographics developed by healthcare consumer experts from Procter & Gamble, proven to motivate behavior change.

Through psychographic segmentation each communication is designed to appeal to employees’ intrinsic motivations, helping them understand the personal benefits of a wellness program.  This enhances the likelihood of participation and improves Return On Investment.
