Several employers from across the coastal counties of Mississippi met on October 16th in Ocean Springs.
The purpose of the meeting was to help coastal employers better understand healthcare value and quality in order to meet the current and future needs of their employees.
Topics discussed included:
- Awareness of the various value and quality measures in use
- How to know which quality measure to share with your employees
- Incentives needed to promote change for all
- Pilot opportunities for coastal employers with coastal healthcare providers
A similar meeting was held in September for coastal healthcare providers. The next step will be advancing pilot opportunities for coastal employers with coastal healthcare providers. By sponsoring meeting such as this, the Mississippi Business Group on Health is helping employers find solutions through collaboration.
