Partnering with purchasers to provide employees access to the highest quality care for hip and knee replacement surgery

The Employers Centers of Excellence Network (ECEN) is a first of its kind, multi-purchaser collaborative that provides employees access to the highest quality care for hip and knee replacement surgery at no cost to them.  ECEN was established by the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH) as a part of our ongoing commitment to improve the quality and affordability of health care in the United States.

How do employees benefit?

Through ECEN, employees are able to undergo joint replacement at a carefully selected and renowned “center of excellence” healthcare facility at no cost to them. This includes consultations, care, travel and living expenses.

 

 

How do employers benefit?

For employers, better care means the potential for a quicker return to work for employees and fewer cases of complications and costly joint replacement revisions.

 

The Employers

Walmart, Lowe’s and McKesson joined with PBGH to launch this initiative.  ECEN expects to increase the employers participating in the program, and expand the program to cover additional health conditions.  ECEN is anticipated to serve as a model for delivering quality health care for employees with transparent and predictable costs for employers.
