National Business Coalition on Health
Improving Health, Transforming Health Care, Community by Community

The National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) is a national, non-profit, membership organization of purchaser-led health care coalitions. NBCH and its members are dedicated to value-based purchasing of health care services through the collective action of public and private purchasers. NBCH seeks to accelerate the nation's progress towards safe, efficient, high-quality health care and the improved health status of the American population.


Since 1992, NBCH's member coalitions and multi-stakeholder affiliates have been actively engaged in developing programs that foster the four pillars of value-based purchasing:

  • Standardizing performance measurement
  • Reporting performance measurement results publicly
  • Reforming the health care delivery payment system
  • Engaging consumers in informed decision making
