Recommendations from the Business Roundtable

The Business Roundtable report that compared U.S. health care expenditures and benefits with those of other countries concluded with a couple of recommendations worth noting.

The report recommended “engaging all Americans in taking an active role in their health care. First, this means placing an obligation on all Americans to obtain health insurance either through their employer or the private market. Second, we must encourage all Americans to participate in employer- or community-based prevention, wellness and chronic care programs.”

These happen to be two of the Healthy Workforce 2010 recommendations that are included in Healthy Workforce 2010: The Essential Health Promotion Sourcebook for Employers, Large and Small published by Partnership for Prevention published in 2001.
