I am on the Board of the Pacific Business Group on Health www.pbgh.org. This is a group of very large employers including the Boeing Target, Safeway and the University of California. I was asked to join the Board after they shut down Pac Advantage.
Their Mission Statement is ;
To improve the quality and availability of health care while moderating cost. PBGN works on many fronts to improve the quality and affordability of health care, in close partnership with our members, health plans, physician groups, hospitals consumer organizations , and others concerned about our health care system. Through an annual Member review, initiatives are chosen to advance our mission and further the organizational goals.
They are a very effective organization and hold a lot of influence on public policy.
My question to you is how do you think California small businesses can work most effectively with PBGH. Obviously we have common goals especially in the area of driving down the cost of health care and improving the quality and outcomes in our current system.
They are in the process of doing their annual review and I would like to relay your thoughts.
