About the Seminar

Health care and safety issues are everyday life issues for much of the global workforce. But beyond the headlines, what has been the impact of the coronavirus on other critical health care areas and how are employers adapting? How can organizations prepare for the new future of health care to protect their employees?

We identify three transition points: fertility and childbirth; chronic or acute disease diagnosis; and the declining health of parents. While COVID-19 has taken the headlines, all three of these areas are changing in the new work and health environment.

We will examine these three junctures and how leading companies are helping employees navigate the “arc of life” while maintaining the quality of their life and work. How will employee-centered care accelerate and what will leading organizations do to ensure the best outcomes at affordable costs?

Our focus is on the highest-cost care management areas. We will explore ways employers can develop cost-effective programs to meet fertility and maternity care, acute and chronic care, and elder care challenges. Laws, regulations, and research are daily changing what we know and how medical care is delivered in these areas--and we can help employers make sense of those changes.

We will cover transition points including:

  • The great “reset” of health care delivery and its impact on business sustainability
  • Why access to health care and economic recovery are intimately connected and the role of business in enhanced care  
  • Innovations in fertility treatment and maternity care--and the price tags attached
  • Making benefits plans relevant and decipherable to the people who need them
  • Strategies for dealing with complex care situations: advanced illness, chronic care management, and end-of-life-care as they affect employees
  • How value-based benefit design relates to the “arc of life” approach to care management
  • What employers can do to “see around the corner” to better address the needs of their workforce in a fast-emerging health care future, while managing costs during the economic recovery
