Associates in India can enjoy easy access to facilities that will help them improve their health. On Sept. 7, 2016 the Healthe at Cerner Center opened it's doors on the ground floor of Cerner's H2 Manyata office.

“Being a population healthcare company, Cerner believes in knowing, engaging and managing the population,” said Arielle Bogorad, senior director, Worldwide Benefits, Wellness & Fitness.

Associates in Bangalore witness the results of their healthy living efforts for the first time by using Cerner Millennium® in their Healthe Clinic.

“This is our living lab where we are bringing healthcare providers and technology together to actively manage the health of our associates,” said Rama Nadimpalli, senior vice president and general manager, Cerner India.

Along with a Healthe Clinic and Healthe Fitness Center, the Healthe at Cerner Center offers associates ongoing, comprehensive wellness and educational programming across a broad spectrum of themes. “The Healthe at Cerner journey in Cerner India began in 2011 with labs, biometrics and flu vaccination events and continued growing to encompass nutrition consultations in 2014,” explained Prashanti Ambarish, center manager, Healthe at Cerner Center.

“Education and awareness are the core foundation for driving Healthe at Cerner programs and services. A healthy lifestyle is key to mitigating the risks of disease many years down the line,” said Emma Tapscott, manager, Worldwide Wellness – Healthe at Cerner.

Armed with knowledge and tools, associates are empowered to manage their health and care and take steps to prevent diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. Incremental changes in eating habits and movement can make a great impact on a healthy life.

For Healthe Heroes like Palaniappan Sankar, knowledge architect, meeting the goals set by a nutritionist in an incremental manner with fitness training helps pave the way for a better, healthier lifestyle. In addition to the Healthe Clinic, the Healthe Fitness Center is a first-of-its-kind at a Cerner office outside of Kansas City. The Healthe Fitness Center is powered by state-of-the-art Technogym fitness equipment and technology. Associates can participate in challenges and see leaderboards as motivation to help them work toward their health goals. The equipment’s cloud-based technology allows associates to remotely engage with the fitness specialists in a personalized and scalable manner.

Pradeep Premakumar, portfolio area leader for Bangalore, checks in at the Healthe at Cerner Center regularly to stay on track with his fitness goals.

“Prior to the center, I used to work out thrice a week but did not stick to a routine or a plan,” explained Pradeep. “I knew the opening of the center would help me become more disciplined with my workouts and I was happy to know that I could bring in some variation to my work out with the GroupX classes, and of course, the variety of equipment at the Healthe at Cerner Center, which I like to call the Rolls Royce of gym equipment.”

Pradeep participates in some of the GroupX classes, which motivate him to push and challenge himself more than he would on his own. “Because of my workout schedule and GroupX attendance, I am more conscious about my health and have certainly improved my strength, endurance and I feel more energetic throughout the day. I have also started to eat healthier,” said Pradeep.

Along with Pradeep, we hope the Healthe at Cerner Center will help all Indian associates focus on living healthier, happier lifestyles. Be sure to check out another inspiring associate story from Rahul Goyal here.
