As the nation continues to wrestle with critical national priorities, including overcoming the COVID-19 crisis, improving health equity, advancing health care affordability and access, improving quality of care, and ensuring the stability of markets, identifying and addressing the top health care policy considerations has become more critical than ever.
AHIP’s National Health Policy Conference 2021 ONLINE will convene the most respected minds in health care. From the safety of your own laptop, connect with leaders from health insurance provider organizations, administration officials, policy professionals, and lawmakers as they share urgent insights that can help your organization keep moving forward.
Only AHIP can convene such a rich range of perspectives on the issues that matter most right now and as your organization plans for the road ahead. Our forward-facing discussions will include such topics as:
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated adoption of telehealth as a means of expanding and extending access to care. With multiple vaccines in production and a coordinated public health initiative underway to get people vaccinated, what does the future hold for telehealth as circumstances evolve? Speakers will discuss key learnings from the implementation of telehealth, opportunities for telehealth evolution, and the policy considerations that will shape the future of telehealth and its expansion.
This session will explore best practices for leveraging SDOH data to improve member engagement, close gaps in care, and improve health outcomes. Learn how to manage and assess your member population’s health by combining clinical and claims data with consumer behavior data at a scalable, individually identified level. Join us to hear real-world use cases and outcomes on effective SDOH application to understand and address racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic equity within your member populations.
This session will offer a review of flexibilities extended to MA plans and Medicaid MCOs that can help to address SDOH and provide whole-person care. Join us to learn how MA plans are using new flexibilities, including changes to uniformity requirements and supplemental benefits. Speakers will also discuss pathways in Medicaid to address SDOH, recently highlighted in guidance from CMS, including 1915 waivers, “in lieu of” services, and 1115 demos.
The U.S. health care system is on an unsustainable trajectory. Utilizing AI technology and strategic legislation, it is possible to democratize health care and construct a framework that gives all Americans accessible, affordable, and quality care. Join this session to learn how payers and state/federal policy can create room for digital health to flourish and help transform health care into a proactive, people-centric system that empowers patients with tools for long-term health.
