HC21 promotes…
  • Value Based Purchasing- Purchasing health benefits while considering a combination of price, service, and quality.
  • Performance Measurement- Measuring the performance of health care and health benefit suppliers such as health plans, hospitals, physicians and brokers.
  • Consumerism- Involving the consumer in purchasing, reducing risk and to a reasonable extent, the cost of healthcare.  Given the right incentives and information, consumers are adept at making value-based decisions and improving their personal health.

Our strategy is to...
  • Improve the health of the community (employees, consumers,  public)
  • Improve the purchasing process (employers and employees)
  • Improve the health system (health plans, hospitals, providers)
