About this Webinar
Wednesday, June 30; 12 pm – 1 pm ET
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health literacy is the single strongest determinant of health, cost, and mortality. Unfortunately, only one in nine Americans has proficient health literacy. This fact, coupled with the widespread misinformation that has occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, underscores the urgent need to correct this deficit.
Despite its profound impact on health and costs, health literacy is routinely overlooked and undervalued by employers. This webinar describes how employers can remedy this issue with a breakthrough innovation, validated and financially guaranteed by Validation Institute, that is proven to improve health and lower overall health care costs.
- Gain a better understanding of the relationship between health literacy and costs, exemplified through research conducted by the VA
- Learn about a patient-doctor aligned-incentive system, proven to control costs by alleviating the ill effects of low health literacy, called the Mutual Accountability and Information Therapy (MAIT) Program
- Hear how the Program’s results were independently validated by data scientists, and supported by Validation Institute’s financial guarantee – and what that means for employers
- Discover why a leading, global HR benefits and consulting firm adopted the Program

MedEncentive is a health-improvement, cost-containment service for employers, insurers, and governments. The Company’s web-based and mobile-enabled Mutual Accountability and Information Therapy (MAIT) Program employs a patented, aligned-incentive mechanism proven to improve health and health care, and lower costs—an objective often referred to as the “Triple/Quadruple/Twelve-Part Aim.” What makes the MAIT Program unique is how it offers financial incentives to both patients and doctors, for holding each other accountable for completing an educational and motivational process called “information therapy,” which is known to mitigate the ill effects of inadequate health literacy.
