Employer Health Plans and Data Analytics: A New Total Organizational Approach for Advanced Business Management and Cost Containment

It is the era of Big Data, advanced risk analytics, and structural changes to healthcare that begin but don’t end with the Affordable Care Act: the volume of employee health information now available to plan sponsors continues to increase along with the opportunity cost of failing to utilize all of this data effectively. This presentation will address the very cutting edge of information analytics and data-driven strategies for financial as well as non-financial stakeholders regarding the health and health costs of their employee populations. This seminar will address:

  • Who owns your health plan data, what data is available and why it matters
  • Does the right hand know what the left hand is doing? How organizations have historically created internal silos of data and how good decisions on a departmental basis may be bad decisions on an organizational basis
  • What is data aggregation and what new opportunities does it offer for enhanced business management and cost efficiencies
  • The leading edge applications for the available data and how to improve decision-making and the bottom line
  • Why companies are embracing a total cost approach across multiple areas of risk exposure on a company-wide basis, with quantifiable advantages not only for employee medical plans but disability and workers’ compensation spend as well

Employee Behavior and Medical Costs: How Plan Design, Consumerism and Wellness Programs Can Improve Your Health Plan and How They Can’t

Employee Behavior and Medical Costs: How Plan Design, Consumerism and Wellness Programs Can Improve Your Health Plan and How They Can’t

Employers devote considerable time and resource every year developing a multi-faceted employee benefit program driven by both human resource and budget imperatives. Decision-makers strive to improve participant health outcomes, satisfy recruitment/retention needs and manage costs for both the organization and the employee population. Components such as plan design (including high-deductible health plans) and wellness initiatives drive costs and employee behavior, but how do they actually work and what is their ultimate effectiveness? This seminar will address:

  • The essential mechanisms of health plan economics for both human resource and financial professionals
  • Plan design’s relationship to total cost and how that should guide overall strategy
  • Consumerism in healthcare and how it affects consumer-driven health plans
  • The financial vs. cultural impact of wellness on an organization
  • The dynamics of participation-based and outcomes-based wellness initiatives as they relate to ROI
