PBGH Innovation Lab

Emsana Health was established by the employer members of the Purchaser Business Group on Health (PBGH) who collectively spend $100 billion annually to provide health care benefits to 15 million Americans. Our work leverages PBGH’s deep expertise and relationships with large employers and it’s 30-year track record of incubating new, disruptive operational programs in partnership with large employers and other health care purchasers to lower health care costs and increase quality.


Products designed for employers

Emsana products have large employer backing and are designed to deliver sustained market change that benefits all employers.


Our first product is EmsanaCare, a VIP Access Pass to the highest-quality health care. EmsanaCare makes it easy for private health care purchasers to identify and partner with advanced primary care practices and top-performing specialists to improve experience and health outcomes. EmsanaCare addresses the concerns of many large employers that the care they buy is difficult for employees to access, of uncertain quality and poorly integrated. EmsanaCare is currently in private beta with PBGH employers and will launch in select regions in 2022.

It’s not pretty inside the black box: nothing’s simple, nothing’s transparent, very little is aligned with the needs of customers. EmsanaRx changes all that. We’re re-inventing pharmacy benefit programs for employers and their members. We understand the intricate needs of the industry and how to make them easier for you. Our approach brings simplicity, transparency and shared value to a model that we believe has failed to deliver for too long.
