Spring Leadership Forum 2019

Event Date: 3/19/2019 - 3/22/2019

Event Overview


 

Collaborate with Alliance member leaders on the key issues impacting your strategy this year

2019 promises to be an interesting year for regional health plans, especially provider-sponsored plans.  Mergers and acquisitions of all sizes are reshaping the industry and how providers and payers are approaching markets.  Employers are flexing their muscles demanding accountability and transparency from their payer and provider partners.  Employer direct contracting models are being adopted in some markets.  Novel partnerships are being formed by and between providers, payers, and ancillary service providers.  Provider and payer consolidation will impact almost every healthcare market in 2019.  

Federal and state healthcare policies will shift, and even incremental changes in policy can have tremendous impacts on Alliance health plan members.  In the background, but no less important, consumers are being re-trained by other industries to demand more from providers and payers creating tension between old world and new world business models. 
 
Join your Alliance peers at our annual Spring Leadership Forum for focused discussion on these key issues and more.
