"The approach of investing upfront for a long-term, healthier, and more productive workforce made sense to us," says Robert Scully, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Health Alliance. "Early data from the pilot were encouraging and we decided to launch an expanded value-based benefit for the fully-insured diabetic population starting in July of this year."

"We are excited that a resource like CenterVBHM will enable companies to learn from each other, and we are pleased to join GSK in this effort," Barrington said. "It will be an important resource for all those invested in changing the way we look at healthcare in this country.

Employers large and small, municipal and state governments, and business coalitions are all embracing VBHM. Case studies presenting the experiences of Pitney Bowes, the City of Asheville, NC, and the Diabetes Ten City Challenge participants are featured on the website.

"CenterVBHM is our newest tool for employers, health plan representatives, and benefit consultants to foster a focused conversation about how value-based health management fits within the broader healthcare discussion," said Chris Viehbacher, GSK's president of US Pharmaceuticals.

The Center for Value-Based Health Management offers a growing body of information and support tools that will enable organizations to:

-- Benchmark current health management practices.

-- Learn from best-practice organizations.

-- Provide the business rationale for value-based health management

initiatives.

In addition, visitors will find a number of tools such as:

adherence, data management, benchmarking, chronic diseases, and

productivity.

-- Total Value, Total Return-the seven rules for optimizing employee
