In an effort to identify high-burden health conditions among employees and their families for worksite, community, and health care quality improvement interventions, The Mid-America Coalition on Health Care, with assistance from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, conducted a broad behavioral risk survey among a random sample of employees of eight participating employers and their family members. By working with an established coalition of businesses, providers, payers, and other entities with a stake in controlling health care costs, state public health officials were able to assist the business community to adopt an acceptable approach to assessment of health risk and a community approach to risk reduction.
