2018 Healthcare Economics Summit
Wednesday, April 11th, 2018
Concordia University Wisconsin
(Cost is $100; discounts for alumni, students & think tank members)
- Rethinking the healthcare business model for patients and payors, the role of insurance, removing non-value added cost, and introducing markets. Practical solutions that are saving payors (i.e. companies) millions of dollars, while providing better care for their employees, will be discussed.
Event description: Thought leaders in different areas of healthcare will discuss the current business model for how we deliver healthcare in the US, and explore alternative strategies based on current best practices in different organizations and healthcare systems. Focus is on how to empower decision-making at the patient-physician interface, and to introduce more transparency and productive competition in the healthcare market, as a way to more effectively achieve the triple aim. The forces driving current changes in the U.S. healthcare business model will also be discussed, such as the recent Aurora merger, CVS-Aetna merger, and the JP Morgan/Amazon/Berkshire Hathaway partnership.
Wisconsin has some of the highest healthcare costs in the country. This event gathers the key thought leaders in the country that can provide the solution – better care at lower cost, without non-value-added middlemen.
This event should be of interest to: employers that are struggling with the high cost of healthcare, healthcare innovators/disruptors, physicians and other healthcare providers, policy makers, and healthcare administration students.
