NCQA's (National Committee for Quality Assurance's) Quality Dividend Calculator™ 2008


This free, online tool from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) calculates how health care quality can affect the productivity and absenteeism of employees and affords employers and health care purchasers the opportunity to see how quality care can impact their company’s bottom line.

The Quality Dividend Calculator 2008 estimates the absenteeism, lost productivity, and related expenses that result from a specific set of chronic conditions: asthma, diabetes, heart disease, depression, and others. The model shows how different plans will affect employees’ absenteeism and productivity, based on their performance in managing employee health. Users can compare the performance of individual plans, or simply look at the estimated average impact of working with an NCQA-accredited plan versus an “average” non-accredited plan.
