Specialty Drug Employer Playbook: Stabilizing a Broken System

The Playbook summarizes four years of Learning Network and Guiding Coalition work, translating that work into operational objectives.

The Action Group’s Specialty Drug Guiding Coalition recently released the Specialty Drug Employer Playbook, the result of over four years of study.

Slides from the January 16, 2019, Community Dialogue, Driving Transformative Change in the Specialty Drug Marketplace Through Health Policy and Legislative Action, can be found here.

In addition to effective management of specialty drug benefits, purchasers can use the Playbook to amplify their collective voice to drive efficiency and transparency in the marketplace. A disciplined purchasing process also enables employers to ensure shared accountability for change in Minnesota and beyond.


Mapping a Path Forward for Mental Health Care in Minnesota

The Action Group hosted a Community Dialogue for all community stakeholders to examine the current state of mental health care in Minnesota and articulate a path forward for individual and collective action.

A multi-stakeholder Mental Health Guiding Coalition is now underway to unite employers and others in achieving true mental health parity in Minnesota and beyond.
