Webinar

Save on High-Value Surgeries for Your Employees around the U.S.

[ ]  Do you manage benefits for at least 10,000 employees in the US?

[ ]  Is your workforce distributed in areas throughout the country?

[ ]  Do you want to provide high-quality outcomes while paying less for joint replacement, spine and bariatric surgeries?


If you answer “YES” to these questions, you need to consider participating in the Employers Center of Excellence Network (ECEN).

It’s a program recommended by 98% of the patients who have participated at companies like Walmart, Lowes and McKesson! 

ECEN has negotiated payment rates for high-quality surgical care for specific high-cost procedures at some of the top hospitals in the country.

Hear more about what ECEN can do for you and your employees!

How News Corp Achieves Pregnancy Outcomes 2x Better than National Average

Maternity is a top five health spend area for most employers, and it is getting more expensive every year. Many negative outcomes (and the costs associated with them) can be avoided, given the right maternity program. News Corp has demonstrated that the winning combination must include early identification, regular engagement, education, intervention (to drive behavior change and more informed decision making). News Corp and Ovia Health will share data on how they’ve managed to excel in all four areas to improve maternity outcomes.

Unlock the Value of Second Opinion Services

The right diagnosis combined with the right treatment plan is key to better outcomes for patients and better value for employers.

As a result, many employers have signed on with second opinion services.  These services can provide essential guidance through virtual consultations with world-class clinicians and physician case managers, and offer everything from medical records collection to full-blown concierge assistance.

Should you be thinking about a second opinion service for your employees?  

Join your colleagues for a second opinion vendor showcase that will help you better understand these services and what type might be best for your employee population.  You’ll also hear about effective ways to engage your employees with second opinions, work with your health plans, and track ROI and cost savings.
