Podcast 103: ENCORE Functional Wellbeing with Sean Sullivan

Jun 12, 2020


This week on Health Care Rounds we are rebroadcasting John’s conversation with Sean Sullivan, JD, president and CEO of the Institute for Health and Productivity Management. Sean emphasizes the need for organizations to address not only physical wellness in the workforce, but also workforce wellbeing — and the importance of viewing wellbeing as an investment, rather than a cost. Sean and John also discuss applications of value-based care outside the United States.

This episode first aired on August 8, 2018.
