Working toward Better Health and Greater Satisfaction
This chapter discusses how different purchasers have endeavored to hold down health-related expenses while purchasing health care access for their beneficiaries. It presents a case vignette about a company that has made a very extensive investment in improving health care access and interventional strategies against illness for its workforce. This company has drawn on myriad ideas, tools, and philosophies and contracted with several partners to implement this approach. The possible cost-savings benefits from healthier lifestyles and lower morbidity have not yet been fully realized, which is what makes this example compelling, especially regarding the expectations of all the stakeholders involved. We have an opportunity to witness whether a well-planned endeavor targeting employee health will bring the benefits that are hoped for.
