The big day has arrived! For the past 2 years, the Central Penn Business Group on Health has been focused on creating a data cohort for healthcare data in our region. Our goal was give our members and the broader community an independent data set outlining healthcare costs and relevant metrics for our region which we could use to drive change. With data now available on over 80,000 covered lives, in partnership with Innovu, we are hosting our first data reveal with a baseline analysis of our cohort. Join us as we begin to explore what our data is telling us about healthcare in our region. We will share the following categories of valuable information with event attendees: the demographics of the population represented, chronic disease prevalence, cost of care and employee cost share, as well as information on costs by provider. We will also share our path forward for your access to our Community Lens view of our data and plans to work with other healthcare coalitions to enhance benchmarking opportunities.

The ever-rising cost of prescription drugs is a big concern for employers in our region. That is why we have asked John Adler from Adler Rx to share with us the best ways to manage your prescription drug spend; particularly, the costs associated with specialty medications. Specialty medications can add thousands to the overall prescription drug spend in a relatively short period of time. In this session we will exam best practices for cost control while also ensuring your employees and covered family members have access to the medications they need.

  • Understand how the stigma of mental health impacts the wellbeing of not only our employees, but us all
