In this resource

With rising healthcare costs and generous access to health system resources, Temple University Health System (TUHS) needed to find a solution to help its employees use care more efficiently and cost-effectively.

“We signed on to Accolade because we thought it would benefit our employees, and it did,” said John Lasky, vice president and CHRO, TUHS. “In year one, we achieved close to 50 percent employee engagement and saved more than two million dollars in healthcare claims costs. In year two, those cost savings have more than quadrupled.”

In the second year of partnering with Accolade, TUHS achieved:

  • 97% client satisfaction

  • 7% reduction in hospital admissions

  • 11% reduction in hospital days

  • $9.8 million in cost savings
