Consumer Reports Health

Resources from Consumer Reports® to Engage and Empower Employees to Make Better Health Care Decisions

Introduction

The National Business Group on Health and Consumer Reports have partnered to provide Business Group Member Companies with a series of compelling reports on critical health issues. The overall goal of this partnership is for large employers to disseminate these reports to employees and dependents so that they:

  • Can become more engaged consumers of health care;
  • Empower themselves with unbiased, evidence-based information from a trusted brand; and
  • Make better decisions that help them get appropriate, safe and affordable health care.

The Business Group is eager to learn how large employers are using these reports. To share feedback or experiences distributing the reports, please contact us at solutions@businessgrouphealth.org.
