Walk This Way to a Healthier You
The popular edHEALTH Walking Challenge returns June 8 - July 4, 2020. We conducted a survey to see whether you wanted to hold the challenge earlier this year. However, with limited resources under current stay-at-home protocols, an earlier date would be difficult, so we’re keeping the same timeline as last year. We’ll again use Harvard Pilgrim’s wellness portal for tracking. Tufts Health Plan and Trustmark Health Benefits school employees will also use this site. Look forward to weekly gift certificate prizes that help support local businesses and employees. Additional details to follow.
Salve Regina University’s edHEALTH Program Selected for March EACUBO Conference - Event Cancelled
In abundance of caution, EACUBO has cancelled this week’s Conference in Philadelphia due to COVID-19 concerns. We look forward to participating in future events.
The Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO) selected Salve Regina University’s edHEALTH program for inclusion in their 2020 Workshop Conference. William Hall, Salve Regina’s Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer, and edHEALTH’s President, Tracy Hassett, will provide an overview of how the University saved money on faculty and staff healthcare costs.
Attendees will learn tips for overcoming campus inertia, self-insurance skeptics and ways to promote the benefits of a healthcare consortium. They will find out how the accounting and cash flows operate, and will discover how the University has received over $500,000 in pharmacy rebates over the last two years. They will also find out how edHEALTH and the University are working to prevent or reduce claims before they occur.
The EACUBO 2020 Workshop Conference takes place March 11-13 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. The Salve Regina University - edHEALTH presentation is on Friday, March 13, from 10:00AM-11:15AM. For additional information, and to register, visit EACUBO’s website.
