New variations in health care quality and value are a huge priority for employers. Poor quality and unnecessary cost negatively affect the health of employees and their families, the firms’ bottom line, and firm productivity and competitiveness. The panel will review four strategies with existing examples that employers, employer coalitions, and multi-stakeholder groups are using to improve health care quality and value. Discussion will focus on several questions: How can data and tools for each strategy be strengthened? How can the power and utility of data and supporting evidence be increased? How can the alignment and combined power of public and private efforts be maximized?
