Presented via Zoom

To Register: The Evolution of Health Solutions

Program Summary 

The health insurance and care delivery market is changing rapidly! We’ve seen new insurance carriers enter the market with new solutions. There have been mergers and rumors of mergers between major healthcare organizations, both locally and nationally. Pandemic pandemonium forced us all to do things virtually – including healthcare, and the stress of it all found us asking for the number to EAP. In the meantime, our premiums continued to rise, while all of our budgets tightened. So, what’s really going on with healthcare, and are they any solutions in sight? This presentation, in one short hour will answer ALL of the questions surrounding healthcare…well maybe not all, but we promise to leave you with a better understanding of local and national market dynamics, new care solutions, new engagement solutions, and developments impacting care and costs moving forward.

Learning Objectives

This will cover the following topics:

  1. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the evolving local insurance market and new solutions available.
  2. Attendees will learn about new innovations in virtual care as a solution to reduce health plan cost.
  3. Attendees will learn about how big data can increase consumer engagement and employer understanding of population health.
  4. Attendees will learn about innovations in pharmacy, and the impact it could have on health plan costs.
