The Purchaser Business Group on Health (PBGH) has launched Emsana Health — an independent company established to create health care products to meet the needs of large companies and their employees. Emsana Health will serve as an “innovation studio” to develop products designed with and for PBGH member organizations — which include Walmart, Costco, Tesla, and Microsoft.
