Integrated health care benefits, which bundle certain services in one offering, are likely to give clients a better return on their investment (ROI) than traditional plans, according to a new study by HealthAdvocate. The study evaluated outcomes for 28 HealthAdvocate customers enrolled in their Empowered Health program, which integrates a proactive wellness program, administrative assistance in navigating the health care system, and a data analytics platform to track costs and outcomes, among other services. The 28 clients represented around 91,000 insured members.
