Trifecta™ is a program design methodology that aligns incentives with actions that generate immediate cost savings while impacting intermediate and long-term cost and outcome-related benefits. This approach, developed through the analysis of several years of client interactions and volumes of actual engagement data, provides the foundation for investment in incentive programs that will drive engagement without the uncertainty of longer-term risk reduction as the sole promise of return on investment.

Then those employers got their health plan bills.
