Having the right data results in better health outcomes. - Springbuk

What if you could identify how many of your employees are at risk of suffering from a disease like stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other health conditions through a software that provides intelligent health data?

Sounds great right?

It's not very often that we highlight a product within the podcast but this product is just too amazing not to share!

In today's episode, I get to talk with Rod Reasen, the guy who founded The Healthiest Employer Award program where Xenium has participated and won every year since its start back in 2008. 

He and his team started a software company called Springbuk to address the growing concerns of employers over the rising cost of health and wellness programs. The health intelligence software utilizes employee health data to lessen the cost, prevent diseases, and figure out where to allocate funds to create a healthier workforce.

Rod is going to simplify everything on how their software works and why you need to incorporate this technology in your workplace.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • Rod's learnings from his career as a broker
  • Helping employers with health insurance and its rising cost
  • How the “Healthiest Employers Program” started
  • Why wellness programs aren't making as big of an impact on health as we hoped
  • Trends within the health data
  • Biometric screening and holistic wellness programs
  • What is the Springbuk app and what does it do for employers
