Atlanta-Chicago Health and Work Performance (ACHP) Initiative
The ACHP Initiative grew out of a simple observation: that lack of information about the real value of health services hampers the efficiency of employer health care purchasing. Purchasers have ways to evaluate the quality of other inputs they purchase. They have ways to evaluate the cost-savings created by innovations in production technology and the effects of direct-to-consumer ad campaigns, but they generally lack comparable ways to evaluate the effects of investments in employee health care or the dollars spent on health benefits programs. The Institute for Health and Productivity Management (IHPM) set out to change this situation in order to increase the rationality of employer-sponsored health care purchasing by collaborating with leading academic researchers to develop a model system of health and productivity management in two leading health care markets. Atlanta and Chicago were selected as the demonstration sites. Funding for the initiative has been provided by the federal government through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
