Health Competitiveness Research
Business, civic, and healthcare leaders recognize health as critical to their community’s economic vitality and quality of life. Workforce health and productivity are especially important to a community’s future economic growth and competitiveness. Many sources present statistics and findings on an area’s health status yet may not provide leaders with actionable data or analyses to inform understanding and areas for action. As a result, leaders face many unknowns about the sources and economic effects of health in their region – and how best to move forward individually or together to make necessary changes for improvement.
FTI Consulting’s Center for Healthcare Economics and Policy (the Center) assists business and civic leaders to address these fundamental questions with actionable data and analyses tailored to their own community’s and workforce’s health and economic issues. We use a unique proprietary model and extensive commercial claims data tailored to each community to assess and quantify productivity and medical costs and critical factors of access and resources. We work with local businesses and stakeholders to provide the necessary comprehensive health and economic research in a way that is customized for the issues and priorities of each business and community. Sharing of FTI Consulting’s research results with local business, civic, and healthcare leaders provides understanding and opportunities for improvement.
Using our proprietary models, experience and extensive health and economic data we seek to help businesses and leaders in each community to answer:
- What is the impact of health on a community’s people, economy and competitiveness?
- How does your community compare with other cities?
- What is working?
- What are priorities for change?
