NASHVILLE, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegis Health Group, the nation's leading healthcare business development company, announcedtoday the signing of several multi-year agreements to bring business development initiatives to 11 U.S. hospitals. These new alliances will enable partnering hospitals to work with employers in their communities to better manage the health of their workforce
The new agreements include:
Through their agreements with Aegis, these hospitals will begin offering employers a cost-effective solution to address their rapidly rising health-related costs. Aegis will provide the hospitals proprietary tools and, in most cases, an employer relations specialist housed on the hospital campus to help make this happen. Using data gathered through personal health profiles, at-risk employees will be matched with appropriate early detection, prevention and education initiatives offered by the hospitals. As has been proven in other markets throughout the country who are utilizing the Aegis program, this approach is expected to result in employee health being improved while employer healthcare costs are reduced.
"We look forward to working with all of these prestigious hospitals and health systems to help align their programs and services with the specific health needs of area residents," said Henry Ross, CEO of Aegis. "More and more hospitals are recognizing that they need to find new ways to grow market share and serve their communities. What we're hearing from the market is that the Aegis solution is the right product at the right time, and that's a good indication of what we anticipate being an upbeat year for Aegis in 2010."
Aegis is the nation's leading healthcare business development company whose programs can currently be found in more than 4,000 employer sites across the country. Employers participating in these programs repeatedly recognize significant dollar savings in employee health costs, absenteeism, healthcare premiums, workers' compensation and other healthcare-related expenditures.
