NEBGH Initiatives

Healthcare is costly and complicated. So benefits leaders face tough challenges when it comes to keeping employees well – both physically and mentally – and providing help when it’s most needed.

Our top priority is offering practical guidance on issues you tell us are at the top of your list of concerns, whether it’s how to steer employees with cancer to high-value care, how to compete with Silicon Valley-style benefits packages or whether tele-mental health services might be worth considering- to name just a few of the topics we tackle.

We also devote resources to efforts aimed at fixing healthcare. Our work with New York State on developing and implementing a new model of advanced primary care is just one example.

Take a look at what we’re up to!

Creating a Vaccination-Friendly Culture

Employers are in a unique position to increase trust in the science of vaccines and improve vaccination rates as part of their efforts to promote health and well-being among employees and family members.

News You Can Use: COVID-19

Check out the latest on the COVID-19 outbreak and what you – and your employees – need to know.

Tackling Chronic Conditions

Do you struggle to manage conditions like diabetes, obesity and musculoskeletal disorders in your employee population?

Social Determinants of Health

There is a growing awareness among employers that factors like where employees live, what food they have access to and whom they’re caring for—in addition to how much money they make- have a significant impact on how healthy they are.

Pandemic Planning

COVID-19 is still a struggle yet we need to get ready for the next pandemic. What should you be working on now and in the future?

Mental Health Now and in the Future

Mental health is a top concern for most of our members and an area of key focus for us. We deliver programming throughout the year on topics like dealing with substance misuse, preventing suicide and leveraging new technologies to expand mental health offerings. 

Cancer Care

Cancer is a major cost driver for employers and a key concern in many employee populations.

Do you know how to assess quality and value, and ensure that you and your employees are getting the best outcomes from the cancer care you purchase?

Supporting Employee Caregivers

Did you know that one in six employees is balancing work with caring for an ill or elderly family member? And the number of employee caregivers is expected to increase significantly over the next several years.

Visit our full toolkit – you can download the resources, take a self assessment and shop for a digital caregiving tool!

The Path Forward for Mental Health and Substance Use

Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH) has been selected to lead efforts in New York, northern New Jersey and southern Connecticut to improve mental health and substance use care.

Maternity Care Quality

ExpectNY is our website that educates expectant parents about maternity care quality. It empowers them to have informed conversations with their doctors about procedures like C-sections, episiotomies and epidurals, and also provides user-friendly quality information for hospitals in NYC and Long Island.

“Healthcare moves so fast and is so complex that we rely on NEBGH to do what we don’t have the time or expertise to do on our own.”
