September 2021A pathway for coordinated, affordable employer-sponsored health care

Employer-sponsored health coverage remains the main source of health care support for America's working families, but it faces many challenges, including health outcomes that are not keeping pace with rising costs, persistent inequities in health care and health, poor coordination, and lack of transparency about quality and cost.

In this report, Morgan Health and the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy discuss the need for employer leadership to improve health care and outcomes. The authors reflect on how previous efforts to reform the system and improve the quality and coordination of care fell short, and discuss Advanced Primary Care and Accountable Care strategies, as well as potential outcome metrics, so program leaders can measure success.
