Integrated Wellness Programme for companies and healthcare funders

Energi has a commercial alliance with Afriforte (Pty) Ltd, the commercial arm of the Workwell Research Unit of the North-West University. The AfriForte-Energi integrated Wellness programme is built on a system that assesses and monitors the health risk of a population, turning information into business intelligence that empowers financiers (employers and funders) to make the correct decisions regarding the interventions required to manage the health status (risk) of that population to the benefit of all stakeholders (the individual, medical aid scheme, employer, and insurer).

Using the South African Employee Health and Wellness Survey, together with various recommended health management programmes, data is collected on organisational health, occupational health, employee health risks, healthcare claims, absenteeism, presenteeism, disability and executive health. This data is collated, integrated, analysed and reported on, allowing efficient outcomes measurement, risk prediction and risk control for the company.

This sophisticated programme focuses on 7 key success factors related to employer-based health management, namely:

  • Integrating all health management programmes into the organisations operations
  • Simultaneously addressing individual, environmental, organisational, policy and cultural factors affecting the health of employees
  • Targeting a broad range of relevant health issues
  • Tailoring programmes to address specific needs
  • Attaining high participation rates
  • Rigorously evaluating programmes
  • Communicating successful outcomes to key stakeholders
