The Kansas Business Group on Health (KBGH) is a non-profit, multi-stakeholder membership organization affiliated with the Medical Society of Sedgwick County. The KBGH’s mission is to help their employer members increase the value of their employee health benefits by improving the quality and reducing the cost through training, education, and by offering discounts on resources proven to increase value. Currently, the KBGH is primarily in Sedgwick County, with plans to expand across the state.
We believe that having data is a crucial piece for employers to design their benefit strategy, and hospital safety data is a considerable part of that data. We want to be part of the solution to better inform our members, and the community as a whole, of the safety and quality ratings of our area hospitals.
