Healthcare Consultants Forum Members receive a discount of $100 applied at registration.

To stay ahead of the curve as a healthcare consultant, you strive to deeply understand the leadership challenges your clients face in order to provide expert advice and solutions. Managing the health of populations will require your clients to adopt a fundamentally new business model that involves more integration and new data systems, operations and management teams.

The 2014 Healthcare Consultants Forum Program will delve into the art and science of population health management and provide strategies you can use to help your clients achieve positive clinical and financial outcomes. During a panel discussion addressing clinical integration, C-suite executives will share their insights and lessons learned, imparting knowledge for consultants to apply in their work.

Emerge from this session with a greater understanding of:

  • Why and when population management works
  • Unknowns and limitations of current programs that may compromise outcomes
  • Data systems and organizational infrastructure necessary for population health management
  • Market forces that will impact reimbursements including exchanges, consumer behavior and employer strategies
  • Different models of clinical integration and how consultants are utilized to achieve positive results

This unique learning and networking opportunity—designed for both new and experienced healthcare consultants—will help build your skill set and allow you to connect with your peers who share a commitment to professional development and the healthcare field.
