West Coast Public Sector Plan Sponsors Will Coordinate More Closely Through Purchaser Group

The Purchaser Business Group on Health (PBGH) for the first time has created a public purchaser advisory committee. The decision, part of the purchaser group’s newly announced five-year plan, is meant to align the needs of its public members and integrate them with private purchasers.

PBGH is a nonprofit coalition representing nearly 40 public and private purchasers that collectively spend $350 billion annually on health care services. While the group’s members include major corporations such as Apple, Inc., Microsoft Corp. and the Walt Disney Co., PBGH is different from other purchasing organizations in that it also represents public purchasers, according to Elizabeth Mitchell, PBGH’s chief president and chief executive officer.
