Employer Strategies to Reduce Health Costs and Improve Quality through Network Configuration

This report combines data from the 2019 Employer Health Benefits Survey with findings from focus groups conducted with human resources managers to provide an overview of the current strategies firms are employing in their network decision-making. The analysis outlines the various approaches employers have taken to control costs and improve quality of care, and offers a deeper understanding of the resulting successes, barriers, and trade-offs.

The report can be found on the Peterson-KFF Health System Tracker, an online information hub dedicated to monitoring and assessing the performance of the U.S. health system.
