An article published in HealthLeaders, "New Technology, Strategies Improve Occupational Health Management", provides an overview of how Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is running its occupational health program using Enterprise Health — the electronic health platform specifically developed to manage employee health.
Samantha Lodish, administrative manager, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, was a source for the article's author. She shared how important it is for their hospital to be able to track the health of and care for their employees and how the Enterprise Health software solution helps them do that.
Here are a few verbatim key takeaways:
- Occupational health concerns account for roughly $171 billion in annual healthcare costs and range from illnesses and viruses to behavioral health concerns and substance abuse issues.
- Prompted in part by the pandemic, which highlighted the importance of monitoring employee health, healthcare organizations are using the EHR platform and digital health technology to track employee health and give staff a platform to manage their wellness and communicate with supervisors.
- The [Enterprise Health] platform gives administrators insight into employee compliance and engagement rates, while streamlining the communication process and allowing interactions through mobile devices and an online portal.
