Ovia Health’s Industry-Leading, Evidence-Based Maternity and Family Benefits to Help Employers Prevent Costs, Attract and Retain Top Talent
BOSTON—Ovia Health, the industry leader in maternity and family benefits, and Willis Towers Watson, a global advisory, broking and solutions company, announced this week that Ovia Health has been included as part of Willis Towers Watson’s new Family and Fertility Solution. Ovia Health offers an effective, engaging, and scalable maternity and family benefits program that supports the whole family, from preconception and pregnancy through return-to-work and working parenthood.
With 50 physician-designed clinical programs, predictive coaching, personalized care plans, customized employer benefits information, and evidence-based return-to-work talent programs, Ovia Health supports the changing needs of women and families throughout the parenthood journey and helps employers reduce maternity-related healthcare costs.
“Willis Towers Watson is known for helping companies solve big problems, and that’s exactly what the Family and Fertility Solution is all about,” said Paris Wallace, CEO of Ovia Health. “The solution solves two key problems for employers: rising healthcare costs and the need to recruit and retain top talent. In particular, Ovia Health’s evidence-based approach and extraordinary user engagement allow employers to improve health outcomes and provide the support and guidance women and families desperately want — and need — in the workplace.”
Offering maternity and family benefits is a key priority for employers in 2018. Willis Towers Watson’s 2017 Maternity, Family and Fertility Survey found that two-thirds of employers will offer fertility benefits to employees by 2019. The survey discovered that a majority of employers are implementing these benefits to help recruit and retain top talent (59%), and almost half of employers are doing so to be recognized as a “best place to work” or a “woman-friendly workplace.” Ovia Health helps employers achieve these goals as well as prevent maternity costs related to complications or risks, such as infertility, preterm delivery, and postpartum depression.
Since 2012, Ovia Health has helped over 8 million women and families on their journeys to parenthood. For more information on Ovia Health, click here.
