Webcast Summary

Think the only options for companies to lower healthcare costs are to increase deductibles or reduce benefits?

Think again. New research from Mercer highlights technological advances that better equip midsize companies to address root causes that contribute to healthcare costs without requiring companies to shift more of these costs to employees.

During this Webcast, we will highlight key findings of Mercer's research about healthcare benefits, as well outline strategic recommendations based on these findings, including how finance leaders with midsize companies can:

  • Improve employees' awareness of and ease of access to information about healthcare benefits,
  • Offer targeted healthcare programs to help employees with specific issues such as diabetes, and
  • Apply technological advances such as predictive analytics to advise employees and enable them to make more informed decisions about doctor visits, tests, and procedures.
