Wednesday Workshops

Expanded In-Depth Programming Planned for Wednesday, June 20

AHIP has designed a number of expanded workshops to precede the Institute, providing you with an opportunity to learn in a more intensive environment with an extended time frame about critical health care reform issues. While we continue to develop these events, we encourage you to take a quick look at some of the events already in progress.  


Health Reform Advanced Studies Workshop
June 20, 11:00 am – 5:30 pm

Health Reform Update: Implementation, the Deficit, and Bending the Cost Curve
A great way to work towards your Fellow, Health Insurance Advanced Studies Designation (FHIAS)  

This workshop is a great way to complete the elective requirement for Fellow, Health Insurance Advanced Studies Designation (FHIAS). The FHIAS designation is designed for experienced health insurance industry professionals who are focused on gaining a deeper knowledge of how various topics work together in an evolving health care system. With a more detailed look at products like disability, long-term care, dental, and Medicare, this designation will give you an upper hand with the knowledge of these important health insurance topics. The Advanced Studies Workshop enables you to test at the Institute after the workshop or later at your convenience online to receive credit towards completion of FHIAS.

The MTM Workshop seeks to go beyond the traditional scope of MTM discussions to highlight the hidden value these programs represent for both clinical and business strategy. The workshop will inform attendees about modern MTM strategies and delineate the different roles and opportunities for the various stakeholders within the health care industry. Additionally, this workshop will serve as a forum for health plans, pharmaceutical companies, and business leaders to share best practices.

Leveraging the Power of Health Plan Big Data to Contain Costs and Improve Health Care Outcomes
June 20, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Presented by LexisNexis

“Big data” is defined as datasets whose size exceeds the ability of typical database software tools to capture, store, manage and analyze it. It has been suggested that if the U.S. health care system could use big data creatively and effectively to drive efficiency and quality we could generate annual health care savings of more than $300 billion. The emergence of open-source massive parallel-processing computing platforms opens new opportunities to increase the agility and scale of solutions for health plans to maximize big data. This workshop will gather some of the best minds of the commercial health care industry to explore the ways in which vendors and health plans might work together to exploit these emerging technical capabilities to contain health care costs while improving health care outcomes.

Customer Centricity: Addressing Consumer Needs in an Era of Transformation
June 20, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Presented by Ernst & Young

This workshop is relevant for leaders throughout the health plan who are responsible for contributing to the end-to-end brand experience. Communicating value directly to consumers using new approaches, engendering loyalty with members through effective care management programs, and keeping health information secure are key topics to be discussed. Our speakers will also discuss how technology and value-added analytics can help health plans balance the imperative to operate efficiently with delivering highly consistent and compliant personal service.   Employers, government purchasers, and direct-care providers will be kept top of mind as key clients and influential stake holders. Using a case study involving a company acknowledged for its leading customer practices and a lively discussion with a panel of health care industry professionals, we expect this to be an engaging conversation.  A dialogue that is highly relevant to a new health care consumer environment.
