Centers of Excellence

Widespread variation in provider quality and efficiency is a major driver of health care costs. For health care purchasers who buy coverage for employees, this not only drives up health care costs but also affects employee productivity and absenteeism.

PBGH works with its members to identify the best performing, most efficient providers to control costs and to create benefit designs that encourage employees to seek high-value care. PBGH helped form one of the country’s highest-quality and most cost-effective centers-of-surgical-excellence networks.
