In recent years, Corporate Wellness has become an increasingly integral component of business strategy. The wellness space can thrive beyond the walls of HR and into the fabric of organizations to impact both personal and organizational health. Disease prevention and wellbeing has a direct impact on presenteeism, absenteeism, performance, satisfaction, injuries, accidents, and more. More and more companies are finding that healthier employees are also happier and more productive. Therefore, corporate wellness companies are offering an array of different services and approaches to ensure the good health of their people. U.S. Preventive Medicine is one such leading corporate wellness organization which focuses on reducing health risks and unnecessary healthcare utilization by keeping people healthy and helping them better manage chronic conditions before they become critical.
Beyond Industry Norms
U.S. Preventive Medicine (USPM) is a Population Health Management company focused on improving health and wellbeing through preventive medicine. Its philosophy is to take an evidence-based, data-first approach applied at both population and individual levels. It takes a whole-person approach to prevention that encompasses mental and emotional health, physical health, social health, financial health, and more, with two primary goals: (1) to reduce the burden of health risk and (2) reduce healthcare costs. USPM’s unique, live-saving Health and Wellbeing Assessment, and its whole person-whole population approach is in stark contrast to the industry norm of random-acts-of-wellness. Its versatility of a comprehensive offering with point solutions lead to its innate ability to integrate with its clients and partners. USPM’s core values are an others-first approach, compassion, and focused communication, and it loves to deliver competent results while having fun doing it.
Improving Mental and Emotional Health
USPM has found increasing risk regarding mental and emotional health, and has responded with technology, programs, and additional resources to address this ‘gateway’ domain that affects all other conditions and behaviors. Additionally, it is committed to improving the combination of employee education/awareness with employee activation/doing, while emphasizing the psychology of behavior change in the center of these two strategies to initiate and sustain results.
USPM offers a proprietary and certified Health and Wellbeing Assessment (HWA) that is saving lives. Its HWA identifies individuals with multiple risks including mental and emotional health, and utilizes an internal feedback loop with its Registered Nurses for immediate intervention.
USPM excels in medical and pharmacy claims analytics that risk score populations, evaluate prevalence rates, consider comorbid conditions, and much more, all designed to define and measure the burden of health risk and cost.
USPM uniquely leverages health information in a care team approach that combines both lifestyle management and disease management interventions for individuals with complex conditions and behaviors.
USPM’s leader is its Vice Chairman, Ron Loeppke, MD, MPH, FACOEM, and FACPM. Dr. Loeppke is a Population Health Management/Corporate Workplace Wellness industry icon. He is board certified in Preventive Medicine and has over 30 years of clinical and physician executive experience, along with fellowship trained in Occupational Medicine. He is a fellow of both the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) and the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM). Dr. Loeppke is the past president of ACOEM, has published over 40 peer-reviewed articles and case studies on Population Health Management, and chaired the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Diabetes at Work Program.
Dr. Loeppke has delivered over 300 presentations nationally and internationally on the topic of prevention and Population Health Management. He has had and continues to have an indelible influence on USPM’s relentless commitment to evidence-based preventive medicine approaches and metrics. Dr. Loeppke has collaborated with countless physicians and Population Health experts to further the incredibly important initiative of prevention and Population Health in both the U.S. and across the world.

Additionally, it measures health risk transitions – in another study across 15 employers for 7,804 participants, after 2 years it decreased the high-risk population by 45%, decreased the moderate-risk population by 21% and increased the low-risk population by 18%.

“Before The Preventive Plan, I weighed 327 lbs. Over the next 3 years, I ate better and exercised. I saw my doctor, and everything is in normal range for my lab work. I have lost over 100 lbs and plan on running a 10k. Thank You!” – Michael, Sioux Falls, SD
“The Preventive Plan routine labs and biometrics screening found I had dangerous levels of glucose and I was not aware I was a diabetic. I changed my entire lifestyle and now have normal glucose levels and am hoping to come off the diabetic medication.” – Shannon, Jacksonville, FL
