Minnesota-based companies partner to prioritize employee health and reduce health care spend.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Jan. 25, 2023—Global powersports leader Polaris Inc. has chosen MOBE to provide one-to-one personalized health guidance to improve the health of its employees and their families and reduce the company’s health care costs. By combining data and analytics, MOBE identifies individuals whose health care utilization is increasing while their health is not improving. MOBE Health Guides and Pharmacists work one-to-one with people, producing better health outcomes without additional cost to the health system, employers, or insurers.
“We have a strategic pillar at Polaris, which is ‘Best People, Best Team.’ In order to have the best people and be the best team, we know we need to take care of their holistic health and well-being. We’ve found a partner in MOBE that provides our team with personalized health coaching for sleep, nutrition, medication, and stress support, while also helping us manage increased costs,” said Polaris Chief Human Resource Officer Jim Williams.
MOBE Chief Commercial Officer Kurt Cegielski said, “Many large employers are facing increased costs across the board right now. We’re proud to offer a win-win solution to companies like Polaris to help analyze their health care spending and identify opportunities to reduce their costs, while also improving the whole-person health of their employees.”
Polaris employees will be able to connect by phone or app with a personal MOBE Guide—a health professional with the expertise to address their health and well-being concerns. MOBE Pharmacists are also available to conduct comprehensive medication reviews and make recommendations for medication optimization in conjunction with lifestyle change. Additionally, Polaris employees will have access to a variety of educational resources, such as podcasts, videos, blogs, and a supportive community to aid them in their health journey.
Since its inception, MOBE has collected millions of data points to determine the indicators of health outcomes and costs and uses predictive analytics to intervene and address health claims spending earlier, leading to a measurably healthier population. To date, the company has reached more than 100,000 people and reduced $210 million of unnecessary spend from the health care system.
