PBGH Annual Meeting and Community Forum 

Mark your calendar and join PBGH for our annual year-end review including activities and accomplishments.   Come hear from regional thought leaders on the state of health care in Western Pennsylvania.

What the Region’s Data Tells Us:  A Look Back with a Look Forward

PBGH has implemented a healthcare data research strategy to drive sustainable change for employers in the region. Innovu will provide insight on specific actions that PBGH employer members can take to directly impact healthcare benefits costs on key areas such as:

  • Economic impact of site of care conversion for injectable drugs
  • Provider cost comparison for selected diagnosis or procedure
  • Effectiveness of the PA Acts to limit Opioid prescription limits.

The opportunities presented will open the window to understanding the immediate actions employers can take to gain measurable control over the future cost of their benefits.
