The time is now for employers to evaluate an array of new paths and new approaches. It is time to create a formal strategy, taking advantage of all the options offered under health care reform to better manage costs and improve population health in a way that leads to a workforce that is a healthy, present, productive, and driving organizational success.
We surveyed over 1,000 employers, representing more than 10 M U.S. employees. The report evaluates employers’ responses to questions about their current and future health care practices and offer our analysis on the trends within the context of four dimensions of a successful health care strategy:
- optimizing plan design and funding
- reducing expenses
- engaging participants in managing health
- improving health and workforce productivity
