The HERO Scorecard Preferred Provider Program –
A Way to Provide the HERO Scorecard to Your Clients

One of the fundamental goals of HERO is to promote the use of best practices and standard outcomes measurement. For this reason, we want organizations with constituencies that would benefit from easy access to the HERO Health and Well-being Best Practices Scorecard in Collaboration with Mercer© (HERO Scorecard) to have the opportunity to offer it to them directly by becoming a HERO Scorecard Preferred Provider. As a Preferred Provider, an organization is provided a custom link to the HERO Scorecard that can be promoted to a Preferred Provider’s members or clients. HERO provides responses collected from each custom link back to the Preferred Provider in a separate, independent database that can be used to conduct data analyses and research. It’s as if the Preferred Provider was fielding the HERO Scorecard, but without the administrative burden!
