The purpose of this book is to provide HR professionals and other business executives with key health care benefits measures. In business, where the need to measure is strong, benchmarking can help identify an organization’s strategic benefits plan’s strengths and weaknesses, create a framework for managing change, and encourage employees toward continuous improvement.

Yet for some HR professionals, when it comes to measuring benefits plans, concrete measures can feel elusive. Numbers that relate to the context of a specific business, particularly the same industry, employee size, and geographic location, are usually difficult to find. But it is precisely this organizational profiling that is most beneficial to enable similar organizations to compare themselves to each other.

Health Care Benchmarking contains more than 60 metrics about health care plans, such as premiums, deductibles, and co-pay amounts, which are detailed enough to assist HR professionals in managing benefits plans for their organization.
