Topic Overview: This presentation addresses the needs of employers who want to optimize employee health and productivity, including: making the business case to senior leadership; mapping data and measurement needs; and working effectively with vendors.

To optimize employee health and productivity, Kaiser Permanente (KP) enhanced its integrated disability management (IDM) focus by integrating with key functional areas such as EAP, Wellness, Workplace Safety, Occupational Health and clinicians so that IDM could help overcome KP’s disability absence and related health and productivity challenges. This model utilizes creative methods of sharing ideas and resources, measuring predictors and outcomes, and working together to demonstrate that only through collaboration and integration can we optimize the health and productivity of our most valuable resources - our employees!

This project has been very successful at KP, a highly complex organization. The core principles could be applied to any size employer, and we welcome the opportunity to share and inspire others with these innovative solutions.


  1. Explain why IDM is most effective when integrated with other total workforce health programs.
  2. Identify creative techniques and strategies for gaining leadership support for IDM/health and productivity programs.
  3. Compare innovative models for cross-functional engagement.
