Three Key Themes to Look Forward to at AHIP Institute and Expo 2018
Every June, thousands of healthcare professionals gather at the AHIP Institute & Expo to discuss the evolving medical landscape. Described as the “essential healthcare event,” the conference brings together top health plan executives and decision makers from across the globe to focus on value-based care, innovation, accessibility and partnerships that will initiate change and spark continued industry improvements.
Every year, we look forward to attending the event, meeting the best and brightest from across the industry and joining the many educational sessions. This year, we’re particularly excited about the conversations centered around three of AHIP Institute & Expo 2018’s key tracks: Technology, Trends and Business Insight; Data, Analytics and Actionable Intelligence; and Prevention, Well-Being and Population Health Improvement.
The Power of Technology
Today, the healthcare industry is undergoing a massive digital transformation, bringing technology to the forefront and allowing it to improve key industry processes. During the show, attending organizations will discuss some of the many available solutions, highlighting the power of technology and its ability to initiate and drive change. From company booths on the show floor to sessions led by leading executives, participants will have endless opportunities to learn how technology can improve clinical care, reduce costs and increase efficiencies. Further, they’ll be able to engage in constructive dialog around how to implement new solutions, ensure customer loyalty, and encourage engagement among employees – elevating efficiencies and encouraging long-term behavior changes.
Advanced Insight Through Data and Analytics
With new technology comes advanced capabilities, and one of the benefits of this includes the ability to automatically track and collect large data sets. To improve patient care, reduce costs, and increase revenue, attendees will discuss how to leverage gathered information and capitalize on the ability to access and analyze clinical, financial and outcomes data. According to a Society of Actuaries survey, 63 percent of payers have already invested in predictive analytics tools, industry professionals will share best practices during the conference on how to improve clinical efficiencies, patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. They’ll also discuss how organizations can use data to reduce administrative and treatment costs, decease readmission rates and lower risk of adverse advents.
Population Health Management
In today’s value-based ecosystem, patient involvement in their healthcare journeys has never been more important. To determine unique treatment paths that best meet individual needs and preferences, organizations should invest in population health management services that empower people to better manage their health and wellness, improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs for organizations. During the show, sessions will focus on effective approaches to drive positive and lasting change, touch on how companies can implement solutions that engage employees and encourage them to live more healthy lifestyles.
As a key initiative at Health Dialog, we’re looking forward to leading the discussion around the value of population health programs. We’ll be sharing insight into our best-in-class solutions – including member engagement programs, multi-channel health coaching, and shared decision-making tools – providing demos, answering questions, and illustrating why organizations should invest in their company’s future, and the wellbeing of their employees, through population health tools.
If you’re attending AHIP Institute & Expo 2018 in San Diego next month, we’d love to meet you at Health Dialog’s booth, #519. See if your health management programs are hitting the mark, and if not, learn what you can do today to ensure positive results.
Also, our Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Peter Goldbach, MD, is moderating a session titled, “Improve Quality and Reduce Costs by Giving Patients a Voice.” Join him, Martin Ahrens, Senior Director of Health Management Services at NRECA, and other clinical, business, and government leaders, on Thursday, June 21 at 7:15 am for an in-depth strategic discussion on how to educate and empower patients to take more active roles in their care.
