CalcuL8™ delivers results-oriented and field-tested strategies, based on hard science, to help your organization reduce future health-related costs. You are provided with the capabilities to predict and plan how specific interventions will impact employee behavior and health-related costs.

 

Process Overview

1.  CALCUL8™ begins with the collection of organizational population data including:

 

  • Demographic information

  • Selected health claims metrics

  • Employee health risk factors (i.e. HRA aggregate report)

  • Median salary for health-related productivity cost estimates

 

The data is collected and compiled using a comprehensive Data Request Form (DRF), which can easily be completed by collaborating with the organization’s human resources department and health care provider.

 

2.  Once the data is submitted, the CALCUL8™ report examines eight of the twenty-five Major Diagnostic Categories (MDCs), which are most closely related to lifestyle behaviors. These eight MDCs are:

 

  • Neoplasm (Cancer)

  • Circulatory

  • Respiratory

  • Digestive

  • Genitourinary

  • Pregnancy & childbirth

  • Musculoskeletal and connective tissue

  • Endocrine/Nutritional/Metabolic

 

Each MDC is composed of risk factors, for example:  “Circulatory” is comprised of these risk factors:

 

  • Diabetes

  • Smoking

  • Hypertension

  • Physical inactivity

  • High cholesterol

  • Overweight

  • Family History (non-modifiable)

  • High alcohol use

  • Age >40 (non-modifiable)

  • Depression

  • Stress

 

3.  Examining costs of all risk factors across the eight MDCs that are most closely related to lifestyle behaviors is how CalcuL8™ determines dollar amounts associated with modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. A report and management PowerPoint presentation are provided.
