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!

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.
