In Spring 2019, the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions (National Alliance) launched a national project that brought together nine regional coalition members, including Pittsburgh Business Group on Health, to conduct employer roundtables. The purpose was to open a dialogue about current employer perspectives and attitudes on drug pricing, contracting issues, benefit design, and formulary decisions to define better value for healthcare strategies. The effort led to defining key trends and issues, developing a set of recommendations for employers, and helping coalitions determine where to best provide support for members over the next 2-5 years.
The roundtables included over 80 employers of different sizes and industries. Each session provided drug management education in a variety of areas and robust participant dialogue. Read the report!
