Enhancing employer strategies to improve health and control the cost of care for employees

Research-based Solutions
For over 20 years, NBCH has supported its coalition members in advancing value-based purchasing (VBP) with employers in their local communities. As part of our ongoing efforts to provide cutting-edge products to coalitions and employers, we conducted research to identify the extent to which health metrics and data are understood, used, and driving decisions. We found that purchasers are highly motivated to adopt effective strategies to help them improve the quality and control the cost of care for their employers, but they lacked the tools to do so. Based on this feedback, NBCH created the new web-based product, ValuePort™.

What is ValuePort?
ValuePort is an online tool for busy benefits and wellness professionals that helps employers adopt or enhance value-based health strategies within their organizations or with providers and vendors.

ValuePort consists of three tools to help employers:  
  • Assess your current purchasing and benefit design strategies
  • Quantify your population risk
  • Identify and select evidence-based strategies  
Why Use ValuePort?
  • Unlike any other tool, ValuePort integrates into one platform what employers need for effective health care purchasing and benefits decision making 
  • Validates current purchasing and benefit strategies and helps identify gaps
  • Assists employers' work with providers and vendors on value-based health strategies
  • Paired with consultation from a local business health coalition, ValuePort supports more strategic benefits planning and implementation
