--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Change Healthcare Corporation:



Doug Ghertner, President, Change Healthcare Corporation

Kim Anderson, Manager, Total Compensation Administration, First Horizon



The NBGH Business Health Agenda 2012 panel on “Transparency and Reference-Based Pricing: Changing the Decision-Making Experience” will discuss how employers, health plans and vendors can work together to create a platform that allows employees to make decisions based on critical quality, convenience and cost information.


Ghertner and Anderson will highlight a real-world case study of how cost transparency is effectively implemented in an organization, focusing on employee engagement, ease of integration and resulting ROI – notably, how First Horizon increased its enrollment of its high deductible plan by more than 150 percent. The presentation will also include a demonstration of Transparency Messenger TM, the only tool that proactively engages plan members through the customized delivery of personalized savings opportunities for prescriptions and medical and dental services.

The National Business Group on Health is a non-profit organization that represents large employers’ perspective on national health policy and providing practical solutions to its member’s most important healthcare problems. The NBGH Business Health Agenda 2012 brings together business leaders and features senior human resource executives from many U.S. Fortune 500 companies.
