Predicted to dominate the workplace within 10 years, this highly diverse, tech-savvy, innovative generation will bring a new point of view on work-life balance, skill development, financial acuity and longevity. During this session, you will learn techniques to equip and educate the current multigenerational workplace to embrace this future.

10:40 – 11:30 am The Better Way to Virtual Health Care

Leading employers will discuss engagement methods and the utilization and impact of primary care telehealth offerings. Additionally, we’ll explore where companies see value in the evolution of virtual clinical services, including behavioral health, dermatology and other services that can strengthen population health, while reducing costs and improving outcomes, productivity and member satisfaction.  

Darren Burgess, Vice President, Benefits & HR Systems, Golden Living

1:40 – 2:30 pm Speak Uniquely to Each Employee: How Personalization Drives Benefit Program Engagement

You’re not imagining it — engaging employees has gotten difficult over the past few years, especially if you’re not using innovative technologies to engage your team. In this session, hear from a national employer that is effectively leveraging data and analytics to deliver personalized, timely communications to their employees. 

Seth Cohen, VP Sales & Alliances, Castlight Health 

Adam Entenberg, Vice President Employee Benefits, Viacom Inc. 

3:00 – 3:50 pm Building the Relationship Between Empathy and Value

The emotional state of health care consumers powerfully influences their decisions. When faced with a diagnosis, their choices can result in unnecessary care and higher costs. From that insight, a care coordination model was developed that values empathy. Empathy creates trust. Learn how the emphasis on empathy impacts the experience and cost of health care. 

Kara Trott, CEO, Quantum Health 

Charles White, Vice President - Compensation & Benefits, HD Supply 

FRIDAY, MARCH 17, 2017

8:55 – 9:45 am You’ve Given Them Health Benefits, Now Give Them an Experience

In the war for talent, you’ve created a great benefits plan, but many programs go unused and employees are frustrated with the cost and complexity of health care. Learn how two employers created the premier health benefits experience and simplified health care for employees and their families.

11:10 am – 12:00 pm The 4 Rs in Health Care: Right Care, at the Right Time, in the Right Place and at the Right Price – What if the Diagnosis Is Wrong?

Employers are paying for expensive, unnecessary and potentially dangerous medical care because all medical management programs assume the patient’s diagnosis is correct but too often it is not. Come see how a large national employer is making sure the 4 Rs are applied against the most important R — the right diagnosis.

Rick George, Senior Director of Benefits, J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc.

Pre-Conference Workshops:

Workshop A: The Power of Resilience: Enable Your Workforce to Thrive in the Face of Change and Disruption

Today’s fast-paced, constantly changing and competitive world is overwhelming us. The challenge of integrating demands from work and life is pulling us in all directions, creating distress and draining our energy. How is it that some people are productive and creative through stress and chaos, while others falter? 

Resilience can be a determining factor in job satisfaction and success. Resilience allows individuals, organizations and teams to re-imagine what is possible and thrive in the face of change and disruption. And the good news is: resilience can be both measured and learned. Resilience training engages and empowers employees to become their most vibrant, productive and successful selves.  

This workshop will provide:

  • Experiential learning of the essential elements of resilience training
  • Exclusive presentations from experts in the field
  • Discussions with leading employers who have real-world experience implementing resilience training 

This workshop is designed to be highly engaging, fun, exciting and intellectually stimulating, and aims to create a lot of buzz and energy to inspire you throughout the rest of the conference and when you return to the office.

March 15, 2017
05:30 PM - 09:00 PM

Workshop B: Thinking Through the Full Consequences of New Specialty Pharmaceutical Plan Designs

The cost of specialty pharmaceuticals has been of growing concern to employers over the past several years. However, as employers re-consider new plan design options, it is critical they more fully understand the complete consequences of their decisions — consequences that include the impact of adherence and medical care on such outcomes as absence, disability employee performance and productivity. The faculty will address topics such as:

  • The impact of low prevalence diseases (such as rheumatoid rthritis) that generate high direct and indirect costs
  • The review of a resource that provides a primer for participants to better understand the nuances associated with specialty pharmacy
  • How to follow the dollar through the maze of specialty pharmacy and the potential impact on you as an employer and your employees
  • The impact of out-of-pocket costs on the employer and employee
  • The significance of treating employees with specialty agents based on indications and not PBM contracts

Examples will be highlighted from employers on how they are addressing specialty pharmacy with the goal of improving outcomes while mitigating direct and indirect costs.
