This session discussed the employer’s role in applying health care research in a way that best informs an organization’s overall health and well-being strategy. The basis of this discussion was an original report published in June of 2018 that was partially funded by PCORI and produced by the Center for Workforce Health and Performance. The panel discussed how employers can liaise with health plans, providers, and occupational health physicians to help ensure that the employees and their families are the recipients of evidence based health interventions. Employer representatives on the panel gave examples of how they inculcated a culture of evidence-based decision—making into their enterprises.
