CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Healthstat, Inc. a Charlotte, NC-based provider of onsite, nearsite and shared site employer-sponsored employee health clinics, today announced a 5-year agreement with Johns Hopkins HealthCare, LLC to market, license and implement employee health programs developed by Johns Hopkins Medicine.
According to the terms of the agreement, Healthstat will offer Johns Hopkins’ evidence-based disease management and behavior assessment programs to their network of hundreds of employee health clinics—and their future clinics. These programs allow Healthstat to tackle the complex chronic disease challenges that impact employee health and related health care costs.
Healthstat’s clinical teams support the health and wellness of employees, their families and dependents, and self-funded employer populations across marketplaces, ranging from government agencies to manufacturers to nongovernmental organizations. These high-impact solutions will enable employers to impact their highest-risk populations, which is an essential step in Healthstat’s broader mission to improve the health and wellness of employee populations across the United States.
Johns Hopkins’ evidence-based employee health programs—developed by faculty based on their research and successful application across the broad Johns Hopkins community—address cancer, chronic conditions such as diabetes, emotional health, and disease prevention, the common drivers of escalating health care costs.
“The integration of Johns Hopkins’ rigorously developed programs into our clinics will enable employers to expand the scope of services already available to their employees,” said Crockett Dale, Healthstat’s chief executive officer. “Our collaboration will harness the broad knowledge base of the Johns Hopkins medical community to inspire employees to change lifestyle habits that lead to poor health and higher health costs for employers.”
“We believe that the most efficient and effective way to improve employee health and positively impact health care costs is to make evidence-based programs conveniently available to employees at the worksite,” said Mark A. Cochran, Ph.D., the executive director of Johns Hopkins HealthCare Solutions, the business group that develops and manages Johns Hopkins’ employee health programs. “Our relationship with Healthstat immediately accelerates our efforts.”
