Elizabeth Mitchell talks about Sutter Health to HealthLeaders
Elizabeth Mitchell weighs in on the recent settlement between Sutter Health and the California Attorney General’s office in this HealthLeaders article.
Elizabeth Mitchell, CEO of the Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH), told HealthLeaders that the case was another example of how important it is for employers to review pricing practices, especially for hospital services.
“We think that there will be a lot to be learned from this case when we understand what the injunctive release will include,” Mitchell said. “There is a need to ensure a functional marketplace for healthcare purchasing and this could create that opportunity for California and potentially the rest of the country.”
