Improved outcomes and lower costs through turning employees into smart consumers of health care services has long been the holy grail of employers, their advisers, and TPA firms. Until now success has been elusive. But today there’s a formula with enabling tools that cuts the average cost of care by 36%, when fully implemented.

Employees and their dependents need accurate, relevant, and easy-to-digest information about their care and treatment options. That means knowing in advance what their precise bottom line cost of alternative care choices will be, along with provider quality data to provide context for cost figures. It also means easy access to that data, whether on a mobile device or a desktop.
