Mercer Launches Health Care Reform Content Portal To Provide Latest News, Research, And Commentary On Implications For Employers, Employees

Stocks in this article: MMC

Mercer, a subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies, today launched Mercer/Signal: US Health Care Reform, a new content portal that offers a steady stream of information and insight on the rapidly transforming health care environment and what these changes mean to employers and employees.

In addition to sharing Mercer’s own research and observations, Mercer/Signal: US Health Care Reform will draw content from a wide range of other credible sources, with commentary added by Mercer’s experts. Content will be updated daily. Visitors are asked to register, but there is no charge.

Tracy Watts, Mercer’s US Health Care Reform Leader, and Beth Umland, Director of Research for Employee Health & Benefits at Mercer, are leading the new content portal, supported by a team of Mercer subject matter experts representing all facets of health reform and health benefits. “Many employers find it difficult to wade through the torrent of information on health care reform and determine what’s relevant to their organization,” said Ms. Watts. “We created this new content portal as a one-stop source to help employers and others stay up to date, with news and insights delivered through articles, infographics, podcasts, videos, research, and more.”

Mercer/Signal: US Health Care Reform will cover a range of practical, regulatory, and legislative topics related to health reform, including the development of private exchanges such as Mercer Marketplace, the public exchanges, voluntary benefits, and retiree medical coverage.

“The Affordable Care Act has produced the most significant changes to the US health care system since Medicare was established in 1965,” said Bernie Walsh, leader of Mercer’s US Health & Benefits Business. “Through Mercer/Signal: US Health Care Reform, we aim to strengthen our position as a valued partner in helping employers address the challenges they face around both health reform and broader health benefit issues.”

Employers, journalists, and others may sign up for the Mercer/Signal: US Health Care Reform content portal at http://ushealthnews.mercer.com. Subscribers will gain access to all content, be able to comment and engage in conversations, and receive a weekly email announcing new content. Content from the portal also will be shared through LinkedIn and on Twitter @MercerUSHealth.
