    The Purchaser Business Group on Health (PBGH) for the first time has created a public purchaser advisory committee. The decision, part of the purchaser group’s newly announced five-year plan, is meant to align the needs of its public members and integrate them with private purchasers.  

    PBGH is a nonprofit coalition representing nearly 40 public and private purchasers that collectively spend $350 billion annually on health care services.
