Specialty Drug Employer Playbook: Stabilizing a Broken System

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

Members of the Specialty Drug Guiding Coalition reflected on accomplishments, challenges and opportunities for continued collaboration — and received the Specialty Drug Employer Playbook — during the group’s final meeting.

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.

A very warm and special THANK YOU to all of the Guiding Coalition members for taking time away from daily duties to share candid observations and provide specific expertise in supply chain realities and potential solutions. We could not have done it without all of you!

Planning is underway for the Minnesota Health Action Group’s 12th Annual Employer Leadership Summit. We are reaching out to invite sponsors to join us for this high-profile event!

We have a limited number of sponsorships available. This helps ensure our sponsors have maximum opportunity to showcase their solutions and interact with attendees. The 2017 and 2018 sponsorships sold out early, so we encourage you to commit early for 2019 to ensure that space is available! Click the image above to learn more!

Community Dialogue Maps Path Forward for Mental Health Care in Minnesota as Multi-stakeholder Guiding Coalition Forms

The Action Group hosted a Community Dialogue on October 30 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.

The event serves as a catalyst for developing a multi-stakeholder Mental Health Guiding Coalition to unite employers and others in achieving true mental health parity in Minnesota and beyond.

Once available only to Action Group members, Working Well in Minnesota, a purchaser’s guide that offers insights and actions to help Minnesota employers advance mental health efforts in the workplace, is now available without charge to all!
