TOTAL CONSUMER HEALTH & THE DIGITAL HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION

HCEG ELR at AHIP’s Consumer Experience and Digital Health Event

DATE AND TIME
Thursday, December 13th, 2018
1:00 PM to 3:30 PM CT
(Lunch Served at 1PM)

The trend toward healthcare consumerism and digital health is driving what health plans, health systems, and healthcare providers are offering – or in the process of offering – their plan sponsors, the members those plan sponsors serve and the individuals participating in the U.S. healthcare market. Indeed, Total Consumer Health and The Digital Healthcare Organization are ranked #2 and #5 respectively by health insurance, health system and healthcare providers on the 2019 HCEG Top 10. Moreover, these two items and their closely aligned variations have ranked in the HCEG Top 10 for the last decade.

It’s obvious that healthcare consumerism and digitally-enabled organizations are front and center on the mind of healthcare leaders. Digitally transforming their organizations with a focus on facilitating consumerism is critical for all healthcare leaders.

Healthcare Consumerism & Digital Healthcare

Brian Lobley and Stuart Hanson will share their insight and engage ELR participants on expanding the overall theme of the AHIP’s Consumer Experience & Digital Health Forum. Tentative topics that will be discussed include:

  1. Insight into how healthcare organization can enhance member/patient engagement
  2. How competition from new entrants, cost containment pressures associated with value-based programs, health/entitlement reforms, and technological innovations may impact ‘healthcare consumerism’
  3. Approaches for turning passive health plan members and health system patients into active healthcare consumers
  4. Catalysts for healthcare consumerism change: employer groups demanding better value and trend of health plan members and individuals directly engaging with plans and providers
  5. How value-based relationships demand that healthcare organizations engage with their members and patients

To be sure, HCEG roundtables are free-flowing interactions with heavy attendee participation and they often take a direction of their own. There’s a good chance that the above pre-planned topics may take a turn toward what participants share with Brian, Stuart, and Ferris.

In the era of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity), decision-making is very challenging for leaders because one can rarely foresee the consequences of one’s decisions.
