Look at that. It’s our new logo. MBGH is actively engaged with our members and the community, and we wanted a logo that reflects the spirit of MBGH today - bold, strong, focused.
We also have a new way of describing ourselves.
“MBGH is a coalition of employers sharing solutions and providing tools to manage the cost and quality of health benefits in an ever-changing environment. We do this by providing access to critical market data, facilitating best-practice sharing among the market’s leading employers, and offering practical tools for successfully managing healthcare benefits.”
Our new tagline sums it up, we are about “Connections. Tools. Solutions”
Connections. MBGH programs and initiatives support our “sharing solutions”.
• Topic-focused in-person meetings
• MBGH’s Annual Conference
• Webinars addressing health and benefit issues identified by our members
• Newsletters, blogs and social media for networking and learning
• Publication of a membership directory so members can contact each other directly.
Tools. These are the resources MBGH provides our members to help improve performance of health plans. In 2010, we’ll launch a new website with a resource and tool kit section addressing:
• Benefit design
• Vendor management
• Worksite-based programs
• Employee engagement.
Solutions. In addition to sharing tools and solutions targeting what employers can do to improve health benefit plan performance, MBGH remains committed to health care system reform in Memphis and nationally. Our members’ health plans perform best when the health care system is cost-efficient and provides high-quality care. MBGH will continue our leadership in measuring and reporting cost and quality performance and implementing employer-based programs/approaches to facilitate improvement in:
• Hospitals (Leapfrog)
• Physicians (Aligning Forces for Quality through Healthy Memphis Common Table)
• Health plans (eValue8)
We are developing tools for you and your employees to use this information to improve the performance of your health benefits through employee engagement, health plan contracting, and network selection.
It is exciting to have this new look, especially as we enter a new decade. We look forward to working with you in 2010 and beyond.
