Healthcare Innovation Summit

Thursday September 14, 2017


self-insured employer benefits & wellness programs

Learn from the experts
HR leaders do not have go-to resources to learn from colleagues and find out about the latest innovations in health benefits and employee wellness programs. Learn about the latest resources, expert advice, and data-driven best practices in the self-insured employer ecosystem.
Connect with the right healthcare stakeholders
Connect with other self-insured employers and experts in the industry who share the same pressing and unmet needs.
Come away ready to co-create and co-design innovative benefits plans and care delivery models to improve your employee health outcomes.

In 2015 approximately $3.2 trillion was spent on healthcare, and the amount of spending is projected to increase by 5.8% each year for the next decade.

The evidence of employer sponsored wellness programs efficacy is limited. Creating a venue to share best practices on what works, what doesn’t work, and identify the most pressing unmet needs that entrepreneurs may be able to address is of great interest to self-insured employers. Payors like Aetna are exploring the use of new digital health tools like the Apple Watch to optimize health outcomes for their clients’ employees, but will this work to improve care, increase access, and decrease costs? How might we explore the impact of digital health interventions and validate their efficacy in promoting lower costs to employers and greater health outcomes for their employees? How can we ensure that the investment on new technology infrastructure is truly paying off?

The 2017 Health Care Innovation Summit will start with the patient voice to begin the day-long conversation with an insight into the root problem with regards to self-insured employers and health benefits.

When HR leaders choose sub-optimal benefits packages, how do their employees suffer? Conversely, what does a meaningful and effective benefits package look like?

ePatient Delegates from 2016

Too often in health care, we focus resources on solving problems that don’t matter most to the end users of health care. At Medicine X, we believe in Everyone Included™ and the value patients can add to discussions about the future of health care. These ePatient delegates represent patient experts in their own conditions and their experience of the health care industry. They have been selected to speak at the Health Care Innovation Summit to share their expertise about how payers might best collaborate and partner with patients, providers, technologists, and researchers to drive innovation.
We will be announcing our 2017 ePatient delegates soon!
