More than 1 in 3 American adults is prediabetic, and 90% don’t know it. In other words, nearly one-third of your employees are unknowingly on the path to developing diabetes, a chronic condition that costs $327 billion a year. In this session, learn how savvy employers are using analytic insights to:

  • Identify rising-risk employees who are prediabetic
  • Personalize the engagement of prediabetic employees in their health
  • Improve health outcomes and costs

Health plans have invested millions in pursuit of forging a productive member relationship - to generate both greater satisfaction and cost management. But in practice, health plans’ member engagement strategies are oriented around what plans want from members - not what members want from plans. As a result, plans often fail to deliver on core member service priorities: easily getting care that is provider-directed, affordable, and convenient. Absent plan support, new players are filling these needs—and changing member service expectations. This presentation discusses:

  • The effectiveness of health plan engagement efforts
  • How service failures have opened the door to new market entrants and reshaped member expectations
  • Practical examples of how leading health plans are equipping providers to help steer members, improving the timing of communications to members, and preventing predictable navigation hot spots

Prescription drug abuse and mental health are two topics that are frequently stigmatized and often viewed as individual issues. This perception can lead young people to feel isolated as they navigate the social pressures and challenges related to them. In this session, we explore how employer, health system, and health plan executives should look at:

  • The intersectionality of personal and social well-being
  • The leadership role in impacting prescription drug safety and mental wellness issues
  • How population-level prevention can impact some of the seemingly intractable issues facing young people today

Leading health systems and employers have been investing in virtual care for years, but adoption rates for these early telemedicine technologies are still below 1% in the United States. Single point solutions do not provide the insights nor experience to compel a change in consumer behavior. But a recent study shows holistic virtual care, powered by true AI, holds the promise of improving quality and access of care, while containing rising health care costs. This presentation discusses:

  • A Fortune 500 company study of personalized, end-to-end virtual care which has become a roadmap to drive industry-leading employee engagement and satisfaction.
  • How AI-powered health technology enhances the experience and outcomes for patients, payors and providers.
  • The current state of AI in virtual care and breakthroughs happening in real time.
