Connecting Workplace Leave Policies to National Health Care Transformation The National Partnership for Women & Families conducted a series of interviews with stakeholders from the private, nonprofit and public sectors to understand whether emerging trends in United States health care policies provided new openings for advancing workplace leave policies. This research was designed to investigate opportunities to tie workers' access to workplace leave for their own health needs and the health needs of their loved ones (earned paid sick days and paid family and medical leave) to government, provider and employer efforts to improve health care utilization and delivery systems, promote prevention and wellness, improve caregiver engagement and reduce health care spending.
How Workplace Leave Policies Support National Health Care Transformation Employers, health care providers and policymakers are pursuing improvements in health care services and delivery while seeking to reduce health care costs. Reimagining and reshaping health care through delivery system innovations and quality improvements are key components of health care transformation.
