Juniper fall prevention programs improve wellness and reduce healthcare costs

At Juniper, we know the fall prevention classes we offer help people feel stronger, improve their balance and reduce their fear of falling. Thanks to a review of participant data, we can now show that these programs represent significant healthcare cost savings.

Third party analysis of Juniper participant data indicates fall prevention programs result in cost savings between $2,425-$7,359.

This data is significant for healthcare organizations and risk-bearing entities looking to manage the costs of care and improve member satisfaction. 

More than 90% of Juniper class participants report feeling less afraid of falling and more confident in increasing their physical activity

9 out of 10 Juniper class participants would recommend the class to friends and family
