Kansas City Employers Launch National Effort to Promote Employee Health and Wellness and Manage Longer-Term Health Care Costs
Date:11/10/2008

17 employers join forces to help ensure that employees receive high-quality, cost-effective, evidence-based health care

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Employers fund almost 60 percent of health care in the United States,(1) often without understanding how to fully measure the return on their health investments. To establish the rationale and best practices for employers to adopt high-value health benefits, the Mid-America Coalition on Health Care (MACHC) today announced a two-year national pilot project -- the Kansas City Collaborative. The Collaborative will use Value Based Benefits concepts to develop data-driven tools and resources to help employers improve the health of employees and their families, promote employee wellness, and manage longer-term health care costs.

Consisting of 17 Kansas City employers and other key stakeholders, the Kansas City Collaborative will collect insights from participating employers on Value Based Benefits concepts and share learnings with other employers nationwide. The project, developed by MACHC, in collaboration with Pfizer Inc, which is providing technical and financial assistance, aims to educate employers on the value of aligning incentives and removing health care barriers for their employees. The learnings will be disseminated across the country by the National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH).

"We know Value Based Benefits strategies work because we have seen the results," said Collier Case, Sprint's director of health and productivity, and chairman of MACHC. "But too many employers do not fully understand the value of evidence-based health care. We want to work with employers, through the Kansas City Collaborative, to apply Value Based Benefits concepts across a wide range of workforces and corporate cultures to highlight the impact on employee wellness and health care costs."
