Do you want to help reign-in your company’s health care costs while maintaining the quality of care your employees have come to expect?
The Partnership for Value-Driven Health Care, a group of leading associations (including SHRM), has just released the Purchaser Guide to Value-Driven Health Care. This how-to guide outlines steps HR professionals can take to improve their health care: utilize health-information technology, measure and publish quality and price information, and create positive incentives for high quality, efficient care.
In November 2006, Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt challenged employers to provide health care price and quality information to consumers. The Partnership developed the guide to encourage organizations to highlight specific items that purchasers should consider when buying health care for employees and their families.
As a member of the Partnership, SHRM strongly supports efforts to increase transparency and provide important health care information to plan participants.
