Outcomes-Based Incentives: Joint Consensus Statement

This joint consensus statement is the combined effort of the members of HERO and the American Cancer Society, American Cancer Network, American Diabetes Association and American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.  HERO wishes to thank these associations for their thoughtful work and dedication to fulfilling our joint mission to provide guidance to employers on the design and implementation of outcomes-based incentives in their wellness programs. This should not be considered an endorsement of this approach, but rather as guidance for those who choose to implement such an approach.
