Measure Description

This measure evaluates the return on investment (ROI) produced by the City's Employee & Family Health Center, an on-site health clinic for City employees and their families. The measure captures whether this provided benefit continues to produce cost savings by comparing the cost for medical services provided by the Health Center to what the City would have paid for the same services at an outside provider. This measure does not capture the additional savings realized by City employees in the form of lower copays and reduced prescription costs, which is considered an additional benefit of the Health Center. The target of 225% was adjusted in January 2018 after further review/investigation into ROIs for municipal employee health centers. Typically, an ROI of 2:1 or better is considered a high-performing health clinic in terms of cost savings. We have set our benchmark a bit higher than that standard to serve as a goal towards our efforts to ensure tax dollars are efficiently used.

Measure Importance

This measure tracks whether funding an Employee & Family Health Center is cost-effective and produces employee benefit savings for the City and its taxpayers.

Explanation of Performance

The Employee & Family Health Center saved the City costs related to employee health insurance, and it continues to produce a net savings (benefit) to the City's budget. 

This cost savings number has been increasing year over year. In FY17, the return on investment for the health center was 2.42:1.  We will strive to continue to find ways to identify health costs savings so that we can continue to meet our goal of achieving at least a 2.25:1 R.O.I.
