The website’s mission/goal is to educate enterprise companies on the role of Health Performance Management in controlling healthcare costs and improving quality in an enterprise environment.
Indentify problems with existing current business models; indentify new business models to constituencies – physicians, employers and members.
Enterprise leaders will understand how HPM can benefit the conduct of their health plans and programs through:
• Thought leadership – white papers, case studies, webinars, podcasts, and live events
• Education and information – teaching, explaining, reviewing HPM. How innovative software and HPM can help enterprise leaders with their solutions for greater healthcare efficiency, cost control and health quality improvement
• Collaboration – education on value of collaborative environment built on trust allowing interaction with among enterprise leaders, employees/patients, and providers.

Our mission is to introduce a new corporate discipline called healthcare performance management (HPM) that is achieving the dual objectives of reducing costs while improving healthcare outcomes. HPM is a technology-enabled business strategy that tackles the challenge of healthcare in much the same way that enterprises have approached the optimization of customer relations, supply chain management, and enterprise resource management.
HPM applies proven business and management principles to company-provided health care benefits by giving c-level executives visibility and control over company healthcare benefit spending trends and risk management postures, while scrupulously protecting individual employee privacy. Companies that have effectively adopted HPM methodologies are reporting that their health benefit plan costs are stabilizing after years of unchecked growth, while improving the delivery of healthcare services to employees.
The institute is dedicated to promoting the use of business technology and management principles that deliver better and more cost-effective healthcare benefits.
Backround/What we do:
In 2010, many employers who take responsibility for offering health insurance benefits to their workers will see premiums increase significantly. And as the cost of healthcare rises, executives will see the quality of the services offered to employees decline. In many cases the reduction in service quality will be accompanied by a cost-shift to employees (often manifested as increased premiums and co-pay policies). The forces behind these cost and performance trends are many. But one of the most important – and addressable – factors revolves around existing business models in the industry that hinder the effective sharing and management of information among key constituencies (employers, members, healthcare providers and insurance carriers).
Despite these issues there are concrete steps that enterprise leaders can take to head off spiraling costs and new bureaucracy. There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence that employers can achieve savings and better results for their companies and their employees by implementing proactive, hands-on business management strategies to employee healthcare benefit plans. Success, however, will depend upon a complete re-evaluation of current assumptions and business models that underpin healthcare administration practices.
