The National Business Group on Health (the Business Group) is the nation’s only nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to representing large employers’ perspective on national health policy issues and providing practical solutions to its members’ most important health-care and health benefits challenges. Business Group members are primarily Fortune 500 companies and large public-sector employers—representing the nation’s most innovative health-care purchasers—that provide health coverage for more than 55 million U.S. workers, retirees and their families. The Business Group fosters the development of a safe, high-quality health-care delivery system and treatments based on scientific evidence of effectiveness. Business Group members share strategies for controlling health-care costs, improving patient safety and quality of care, increasing productivity, and supporting healthy lifestyles.
Through the National Business Group on Health, Consumer Reports is offering special reports on health-care issues for distribution by Business Group members to their employees.
NBGH also is collaborating with Consumer Reports and the Choosing Wisely campaign, to extend the reach of information about sometimes unnecessary tests and procedures.
