Transform Maternity Care
The cost of maternity care represents American employers’ second-highest annual health care expenditure. Yet U.S. maternal infant health outcomes remain among the worst in the developed world. Health care purchasers and patients deserve better.
That’s why PBGH works with employers, providers and health plans to develop a maternity care system that embraces high-value services, reduces outcomes variation and incentivizes safety across the prenatal, perinatal and postpartum care continuum.
