According to the 19th Annual Towers Watson/National Business Group on Health Employer Survey on Purchasing Value in Health Care entitled “The New Health Care Imperative – Driving Performance, Connecting to Value”, best performers used the following techniques to curb healthcare costs:

  • Viability of private exchanges 41%
  • Workplace culture 34%
  • Healthy lifestyle activities 34%
  • Financial incentives 34%
  • New technologies 30%

“Best Performers” are companies that have maintained cost increases at or below the Towers Watson/NBGH median for each of the past four years. With an average of 1.6% increase from 2010 to 2013, these companies are good examples to follow in managing health care costs.
