Understanding Your Score
After you submit your data to the online
Scorecard, you will receive a score for each of the six sections and an
overall score. While the scoring system is based on a maximum number of
200 points, the highest score attained when the system was tested on a
number of programs was 160, the test group represented highly advanced
set of programs. We don’t anticipate that any program will ever receive
the maximum score of 200; a program that includes every possible element
of an EHM program is neither likely nor probably even desirable, since
not all scored elements are appropriate for all organizations!
consider your organization’s score relative to
those of peer organizations or to emulator organizations.
Your individual scores provide a sense of
how your program compares to others in the use of best
practices, and shows where opportunity for improvement exists.

Using your Score with Benchmark Reports
Employers can benchmark their programs in greater depth
-- and against a group of their own peers through a
series of benchmark reports based on employer size, industry and
geographic region. These more in-depth reports provide the
aggregated responses to each Scorecard question in addition to
the average scores.
