Employers Can Lead the Transformation

 

Employers can make a meaningful difference by focusing on four key areas:

  • Pay for Value: Higher cost should translate to higher value — even in healthcare. Most often, when reimbursement is based on performance instead of volume, waste plummets and care improves. See how Mercer is putting value back in US healthcare.
  • Drive to Quality: Give your employees the tools to make informed healthcare choices so they get the right care, at the right time. Mercer’s Total Health Management practice provides customized solutions that address the root causes of poor health. Get the white paper.
  • Personalize the Experience: Your employees don’t all struggle with the same health concerns. So why offer a one-size-fits-all solution? Benefits programs that are tailored to workers’ unique health needs — and that empower workers — net healthier employees and cost savings. Mercer Marketplace 365 helped the Texas Heart Institute cut cost increases while providing better choice and decision tools.*
  • Embrace Disruption: If you want an improved cost picture plus high-quality care, get comfortable with change. We’ll help you embrace new ideas and the unknowns that accompany them. Our Q&A covers the basics behind “positive disruption”.
