BestHealth by Baptist: Building Healthier Companies


A customized approach to improving employee health

BestHealth offers large and small organizations a cost-effective way of improving their employees’ health and reducing lost production because of chronic illnesses.

We customize our wellbeing services and innovative solutions using multiple information sources, such as claims data, health risk assessments and on-site biometric screenings. This information helps our clients understand what’s driving costs for their insurance plans and what health issues, factors and trends are affecting their employee population. Our global approach to analytics and evaluation leads to population-specific interventions, tailored to each individual and designed to maximize health results and cost savings.

How we do it

Your organization will benefit from the expertise and experience of Baptist Memorial Health Care, one of the region’s largest and most respected health care organizations. Our team of experts will work closely with you to develop strategies that fit the needs of your employee population, including identifying high-risk areas, assessing cultural readiness and delivering results.

Additionally, as a leader in health care in the Mid-South, we have a unique ability to connect the employee to primary care by leveraging the use of our robust medical record management system, which provides for bi-directional referrals between BestHealth and a Baptist Primary Care Provider. BestHealth strategies include:

  • Applying population health practices that reduce costs for your health plan
  • Delivering a technology-enabled wellbeing program that improves the health of employees and rewards them for their efforts
  • Providing regular, updated comprehensive analytic profiles to management executives for insured populations
  • Designing and implementing direct-to-employer, wellbeing initiatives for area employers

Why we do it

BestHealth is committed to improving and sustaining the health of all the communities we serve. A healthier community means healthier workers, businesses and economies. By collaborating with you, we will:

  • Improve population outcomes for your employees and their families
  • Generate real cost savings for self-funded health plans
  • Reduce insurance claims and associated costs against your health plan
  • Minimize losses due to chronic conditions in your employee population

Our services

Our services are based on industry best practices and the recommended first step would be a detailed current state assessment along with identifying opportunities for driving value-based care and maximizing your investment in the health and wellbeing of your employees.
