This presentation focused on optimizing employee health and productivity through Integrated Disability Management (IDM). Kaiser Permanente's task force of senior management and labor leaders is supported by a community of subject matter experts, which helps them map out how labor, physicians, and key functional areas, such as EAP, wellness, occupational health and workplace safety can be leveraged to overcome preexisting IDM challenges. This model used creative methods of sharing ideas and resources, measuring predictors and outcomes, and working together to demonstrate that only through collaboration and integration can organizations optimize health and productivity.
