A number of benefits may derive from persuading employers and payers to release previously unpublished data on employment of CHWs.

  • Employers lack incentive to publish
    • Data may be proprietary
    • Studies may not meet highest research standards
  • Real-world data reflect diverse CHW activity
  • Some employers and payers will share data with their peers
  • Data can be compelling to policymakers and other stakeholders
  • Little strategic planning or coordination behind the research being done
