Pre-Conference Workshops:

The Journey to Something Better - The Life Cycle of Benefits Delivered through Great Experiences


April 3, 2019

This year, in both San Diego and New York, you will have the opportunity to attend a preconference workshop focused on benefits delivery strategies throughout your participant’s life cycle of benefit needs from new hire, to important changing life events through retirement.  Attendees will hear from thought leaders, clients and Willis Towers Watson experts on topics such as:

  • Benefits as an HR tool: how combining actuarial and health care consulting and analytics, eligibility and enrollment administration and more for simplified administration can positively impact your organization
  • The future of health care: federal health care policy and the changing regulatory landscape
  • Employee navigation of expanded choice 

More detailed information coming soon.

Primary Care: It's Time to Fix What's Broken with High-Quality, Affordable Care


April 3, 2019

The vision of primary care is a great one. Having a primary care physician lowers the odds of premature death, saves money over the patient’s lifetime, and improves chronic care management. However, the current model is declining for a large and growing portion of the population. Thirty percent of adult Americans and nearly half of millennials don’t have a primary care physician. Compound this with a physician shortfall that’s expected to reach over 100,000 providers in the next decade and it becomes imperative that we address what’s next for primary care. 

In this fast-paced workshop, you’ll learn how a virtual primary care program can meet the needs of your entire employee population and help decrease your company’s healthcare costs. Join this workshop to discuss:

  • Why traditional primary care models aren’t working for a large and growing portion of the population.
  • The financial impact of inaccessible primary care on your workforce
  • How Virtual Primary care complements current care options while improving accessibility, affordability and quality

Improving Employee Engagement by Measuring Benefit Program Results


April 3, 2019

During this workshop you’ll learn from experts and employers how they measure success for both traditional and non-traditional benefits programs. We’ll discuss specific measures and data points, then apply them to your benefits strategy and programs. You’ll have the option of bringing your own vendor data or using our sample data to apply specific analytic strategies, find program ROI, and control for outliers to determine real program performance without bias. Come with an open mind and a willingness to get hands-on.  You’ll learn:

  • How to track and measure the success of traditional pharmacy benefits
  • What other self-insured employers are doing to find program ROI
  • Program vendor data and key metrics to track
  • How to apply analytic strategies to your own benefit programs
