The 16th Annual Population Health Forum is just one week away and here at the Population Health Alliance we are thrilled about the speaker line-up and incredible learning opportunities we have in store. Our goal is for every participant to come away with actionable strategies and tools to improve population health.
We can’t wait for our attendees to hear from our keynote speakers, including noted journalist Eleanor Clift, about what the elections mean for health care, along with Oliver Wyman partner Sam Glick who will share his thoughts on how to safely navigate the consumer health care revolution.
Providers should be sure to take advantage of CEU available for nurses and physicians and can attend several education sessions focused on everything from scaling programs to population health strategies for aging populations. Henry Chueh, MD, MS, Chief of Biomedical Informatics and Director of the Lab of Computer Science, Massachusetts General Hospital’s Lab of Computer Science is just one of the excellent educational presenters sharing insights. There is so much to learn and understand in population health related to the dizzying maze of new models of payment.
Those who attend the Executive Leadership session on November 2nd will be treated to a debate to remember as expert Al Lewis squares off against expert Ron Goetzel. Al Lewis has already said wellness industry defenders have “got some ‘splaining to do.” It will surely be a fun and educational session!
Our Convening Leaders workshops offer participants the chance to delve deeper into specific topics like how to deliver the right message to patients at the right time. Our sponsors including Health Dialog, Healthy Roads, Interactive Health, Healthwise, Silverlink, and Intel-GE Care Innovations have vast expertise to share.
Employers have a keen interest in population health and there will be plenty for them to learn about including wellness programs and how to structure health challenges to get the most engagement from employees. A special Innovators Learning Lab will also focus on how we help individuals and employers take data and create an actionable plan for behavior change and improved whole health. Those interested in incentives can learn from Welltok’s Michael Dermer and other industry experts about the latest science and strategies.
As a reminder, thanks to our sponsor Healthy Roads, all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the updated Population Health Alliance Outcomes Guideline Report, the “official playbook” of population health program measurement.
We hope to see everyone in Washington next week!
