about

The Unites States spends nearly $3 trillion annually on health care, 86 percent of which is attributed to people with chronic conditions like diabetes. This is complicated by the fact that the U.S. population is getting older and sicker and health care remains confusing, complex, and costly. Approximately, 80 percent of people over the age of 65 have more than two chronic conditions, and payers are increasingly challenged to successfully manage the total health of this growing population.

Join AHIP and Livongo’s Senior Vice President of Health Services Michael Sturmer for a webinar on an entirely new approach to healthcare that silences the noise and addresses the nation’s chronic-condition epidemic particularly for the Medicare population.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • What noisy health care means
  • Why more isn’t better when it comes to health care
  • A new approach to address the chronic-condition epidemic for the Medicare population
  • How to better empower health consumers through AI and machine learning capabilities
