Are you and your employee benefits strategy ready for the healthcare ecosystem of the future?   

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is upending traditional models of care and motivating stakeholders to create innovative new solutions.  A healthcare system ordinarily rife with complex and slow-moving organizations and regulations is undergoing rapid change as a result of AI-powered sensors, robotics, wearable devices, smartphones and process enhancements of all kinds.

We’ll tackle these questions and more at our 9th Annual Health & Wellness Benefits Conference!

Increase Employee Access to High-Value Drugs & Services – V-BID X for Employers

You can help improve your employees’ health and better manage healthcare expenditures by reducing or eliminating cost-sharing for drugs and services known to help control (or prevent) chronic conditions that can lead to serious complications.  How can you afford this?  By reducing access to wasteful and low-value care. 

V-BID X gives you a template for applying targeted cost-sharing based on the clinical value – not price – of drugs and services. You and your employees will benefit with improved access to high-value care, reduced cost-related non-adherence to important medications and decreased exposure to harmful care. And you’ll experience improved efficiency of your medical expenditures.

The New Sandwich Generation

Today, your Gen X and Millennial employees increasingly find themselves shouldering expenses for small children and/or adult children — including college education and costs of those returning home to live — while also caring for aging or ill parents.  And for middle-aged adults, this is all happening as they plan for retirement.  “Sandwichers” lack the time and energy to fulfill these responsibilities successfully, and their physical and mental health frequently suffers.

Supporting Children’s Mental Health

Nearly 20% of children have a mental health or developmental disability and chances are their parents are your employees. Despite your best efforts, parents may not be able to find or afford a mental health specialist for their kids. Left untreated or undertreated, children suffer the effects of these conditions and parents are stressed, leading to absenteeism and reduced productivity.

Catch the Wave! Dive into New Employer Strategies for 2020

How are you getting ready for 2020? Have you found a strategy that lowers costs for high-cost conditions - but can also improve outcomes?  Do you suffer from wellness program fatigue and need inspiration to try something different?  What about telehealth, ACOs, urgent care and convenience clinics – do you have a plan that prevents your employees from getting caught in a tangled web of healthcare options?

New thinking on HDHPs indicates they may not be all they’re cracked up to be.  And creating a benefits strategy that caters to millennials can backfire when it comes to retaining other high-performing talent.  

These are just some of the topics we’ll cover at our 8th Annual Conference.

The year 2020 is coming fast.  Catch the wave and avoid a wipeout – our experts will show you how!
