In addition, Cumberland will sponsor the 2016 HCEG Annual Forum, Sept. 12-14 in New York.

“We’re very excited about Cumberland Consulting Group becoming one of HCEG’s trusted sponsor partners,” said Ferris Taylor, HCEG Office of the Chair and COO of Arches Health Plan. “As healthcare continues to rapidly evolve and as our members accelerate their company’s digital business transformation, HCEG’s and Cumberland’s unique member-sponsor partnership relationship supports the sharing of the latest advances in technologies, best practices and the most compelling success stories in digital business today. Moreover, Cumberland’s thought leadership, healthcare expertise and willingness to intimately collaborate with HCEG members is highly valued; not only during our Annual Forum but throughout the coming year.”

“With the ongoing changes facing healthcare payers and providers in today’s regulatory environment, it is critical for these organizations to work together to exchange ideas and influence change,” said Peter Biagioni, Managing Partner of Cumberland’s Payer Division. “By joining this yearlong alliance with HCEG, we’re able to take part in collaborative initiatives aimed at improving healthcare, as well as participate in the important HCEG Annual Forum.”
