Leapfrog was pleased to again co-sponsor Modern Healthcare's Healthcare Purchasing Power Survey. This survey examined how much major employers spend on providing healthcare benefits and services to their employees; essentially, who pays for health care and how much it costs. Most importantly, this survey recognizes the growing power employers have to dictate how health care services are delivered.
Leapfrog President & CEO, Leah Binder, along with Andrew Webber, President and CEO of the National Business Coalition on Health, offered their commentary to the survey results. In Leah's commentary, she discusses the challenges that health systems face as both purchasers and providers. Mr. Webber emphasizes the important role that employers and employer-led coalitions can play in influencing healthcare quality and value.
