It is a well known fact that the biggest cost in healthcare expenditure is in specialist and hospital care.
The bottom line of all corporate healthcare plan is to have a healthy work force. An ideal healthcare plan should aim to keep employees fit and healthy and to keep them away from hospitals.
This can only be done through active measures by health promotion and disease preventions.
However most human resource officers are not familiar with the healthcare delivery system and fail to understand the economics of health care. They become too caught up in trying to manage the lesser primary care cost and has little time to take a long term view to control the major healthcare expenditures of hospitalization through disease prevention and health promotions.
Invariably, companies tend to expect their already overworked contracted doctors to play an active role in controlling health care cost for its employees.
Through the MHC Web Based System historical data can be analyzed and the state of health and disease patterns of the entire work force can be profiled.
With the availability of such vital information, employers can now take active measures to set in place health programs which emphasize more on disease prevention and health promotion which will ultimately lead to lower healthcare cost.
