With all the complexities of the U.S. health care system, people consuming health care services continue to find it challenging to navigate. That’s why, for the fifth year, Aon Hewitt is pleased to partner with the National Business Group on Health (The Business Group) and The Futures Company to conduct the Consumer Health Mindset Study. The study explores the health attitudes, motivators, and preferences of consumers across the U.S.— particularly employees and their dependents as they interact with their employer-sponsored health plans, wellness programs, and the broader health landscape.
Along with our findings about the consumer health mindset, we recommend practical actions you can take to meet consumers where they are and guide them in navigating health care more effectively.

Technology has had a truly transformative impact on the healthcare space. Thanks to innovations in technology, tools and their respective processes, the practice of treating patients has shifted from mostly reactive to proactive, enabling physicians and caregivers to approach healthcare in a more holistic fashion.
As part of that shift, hospitals, wellness centers and physicians’ offices are focusing on providing value over volume1, taking healthcare beyond the four walls of the facility and into patients’ homes, places of work and social centers. The concept of whole health is much easier to attain with technology such as artificial intelligence, analytics, wearables and mobile health (mHealth) apps, to name a few.

In a three-year retrospective study that analyzed health care claims and wearable device data from a self-insured employer, Springbuk looked at the potential impact of Fitbit technology as part of a wellness program.
The analysis shows that connected health and fitness interventions can close the gap between the everyday actions that change health and drive outcomes for employee health and employer cost. Some of the key findings include:
* Employees who opted into the Fitbit program demonstrated significant cost savings when compared to the control group.
* Engaged users cost less than non-engaged users.
* The opportunity for cost savings is potentially the highest with less active individuals.
Fear not, it is possible to prove the return on investment (ROI) of your wellness program! But don’t take our word for it. Springbuk, a health intelligence platform, recently evaluated the health care claims and wearable device data for a self-insured employer (and Fitbit customer) over a three-year period.
View this webinar, Rod Reasen, CEO at Springbuk, walks you through their study and reveals how:
- Employees who opted into the company’s wearable program cost less than their counterparts
- Total costs for engaged wearable users dropped by 46% vs. 14% for non-engaged individuals
- Cost reductions were highest with less active members – encouraging news for all employee populations
