What does quality healthcare mean to employers? It means having a healthier workforce, benefiting from increased productivity, and getting better value for each healthcare dollar.
Why should employers care?
As the purchasers of healthcare in America, private employers are in a position to demand better quality for the money they spend. Besides bringing down out-of-control healthcare costs, helping employees manage their health is good for business. Employees who are healthier are more productive and they often need less healthcare.
How does Quest fit in?
Quality Quest for Health of Illinois helps employers get more for their investment by uniting all stakeholders in an effort to improve healthcare quality. By serving as the reliable source of information on the quality of care in our region, we work to increase the likelihood that evidence-based care standards are being followed. And when providers improve the care they deliver, everyone wins.
Together we can improve healthcare
Employers can help improve the quality of healthcare by supporting Quest's efforts to measure performance and share results with the public. By combining their health data and asking their health plans and insurance companies to participate, they support Quest's mission. By working with others to drive change, employers will benefit from a new level of competition in healthcare that brings better performance and controls costs.
