Regional Business Group Creates Quality-Focused Center

The Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH), formerly the New York Business
Group on Health, has announced creation of a Solutions and Innovations Center that will
work on improving the quality and value of employee health care. Under the leadership
of Jeremy Nobel, MD, MPH, the Center will be guided by a Leadership Council
and plans to create a Scientific Advisory Board to review research methodologies.
In a July 26 announcement, NEBGH stated that its first priority will be working on
preventable hospital readmissions, under a sponsorship arrangement involving
Merck and Boehringer-Ingelheim. NEBGH states that the project will align with the
public-private “Partnership for Patients” initiative. For more information on NEBGH
