The Business Group on Health's Vision is to provide a forum and a voice for the business community on healthcare through collaboration among stakeholders.
The Mission is to promote continuous improvement in the quality and cost of healthcare for our member companies, their employees and dependents.
Promote a collaborative dialogue among key stakeholders - business, healthcare providers, insurers and brokers - to keep healthcare affordable.
The Business Group on Health provides education on emerging trends and issues in healthcare through a series of seminars and networking conferences. Business Group on Health members attend our networking conferences free and our educational seminars at a reduced member rate.
The Business Group on Health will invite, score, validate, promote and perform annual reviews of programs that assist employers in holding down the cost and utilization of healthcare. The intent of this program is to review commerical opportunities, but not recommend their effectiveness for any one member.
In 2006, the Business Group on Health launched ActRx – a chronic disease, patient self- management program. Phase I of the program has focused on Diabetes and the program has demonstrated significant improvement in the health and well being of the employee participants and healthcare cost savings to the employers that are participating.
In cooperation with The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Business Group on Health conducts a Policy and Benefits Survey every two years. The survey asks County employers about the healthcare benefits they offer and the results provide a benchmark for them to evaluate the competitiveness and appropriateness of their benefit package. An executive summary of the survey is available to Business Group members at no cost in the Members Only section.
