Understanding Your Score
While a score of 200
is theoretically possible, it is not likely nor even desirable for an
employer to have every possible EHM program and strategy in place. The
greatest value of the Scorecard is in providing an inventory of EHM best
practices for consideration; your scores simply provide an indication of
where you might find opportunities to enhance your program. Average
scores vary based on employer size, and it might be most useful to
compare your score to those of employers of similar size. Looking
at the 1154
employers that have completed the Scorecard as of September 30, 2013,
respondents with fewer than 500 employees have an average total score of
87; those with 500 - 4,999 employees, 92; and those with 5,000 or more
These average scores
will be updated quarterly to include new respondents and posted on the
HERO website http://www.the-hero.org/.
Complete Scorecard results now available!
Benchmark reports that show the aggregated results to every question
in the Scorecard are now available for purchase on the HERO website.
These reports go beyond the scores to show the prevalence of each of the
best practices included in the Scorecard. Reports include results
broken out by industry and employer size, to answer such questions as:
What percentage of manufacturing respondents provide a worksite medical
clinic? What is the average dollar value of incentives for Health Risk
Assessment completion? What's the average participation rate for disease
management programs among health care employers?
