Goals & Objectives
Some highlights of the expressed goals and objectives of the CT Business Group on Health:
Create a shared CT business community vision of health care through hands-on involvement in the initiative from CEO's, CFO's and HR Executives of member firms.
Create a proactive dialog between the business community and state government (elected officials and administrative agency leadership) on matters of health care policy, regulation and legislation based upon the exercise of sound fiscal judgment and quality standards.
Promote economic development by recom-
mending solutions that lead to a financially responsible health care cost structure so that existing businesses seek to expand and new businesses choose locating in Connecticut.
Create a business community voice in the
state promoting a "best return on health care investment" mindset, through a statutory and regulatory framework designed to create efficiency, cut waste, and improve/maintain quality in our health care delivery system.
Improve data analysis and distribution within our health care delivery system, i.e., hospital
and doctor quality and performance, patient satisfaction and underlying cost structure
and underwriting structure used by health
insurance providers.
Promote health and wellness education with the goal of helping employees become better consumers of health care services.
Represent special and unique needs of employers in the state, from small to large.
Promote the elimination of unreasonable regu-
latory hurdles, which serve as entry barriers
to competition in the health care insurance market.
Create a model of success for other states to replicate.
