Value-Based Health Care

Value-based health care stretches an employee’s health care dollar while improving quality of care. It encourages consumers to use high-value services that have the most impact.

Regardless of your organization size or location, you can help employees take an active role in their health care. Value-based health care may include:

  • Offering your employees ways to compare the cost and quality of health care services
  • Partnering with insurance companies to offer tools that help employees with health care decisions
  • Promoting collaboration among providers
  • Encouraging wellness for healthier employees
