The Solutions Center is NEBGH’s unique information gathering and innovations hub. Our mission is to identify and promote new workplace opportunities for improving health and wellbeing, and for obtaining better value from the healthcare delivery system.
Half of the U.S. gets healthcare through employers. So employers have a huge opportunity to use their purchasing power – on their own behalf, and also to act as a catalyst for large-scale change in the healthcare delivery system.
- Employers can design benefits to guide employees and their families to better care and more efficient healthcare delivery
- Employers can engage employees in becoming better, more informed healthcare consumers through education, communication and incentives
- Employers can provide wellness and wellbeing programs designed to improve health, reduce risk and decrease healthcare costs over the long term
- Employers can enter into contracts with health plans – and directly with health systems and providers -- that reward value
