Health Benefit Plans: Controlling the Chaos

You’re in a HUGE medical market, so you know some of your docs are SUPER and others are AWFUL, and you’ve read enough about cost disparity to scare you…but how do you get good, objective, credible information out to your members or employees? (Maybe you even bought an app for that, but nobody’s using it.) Medical Management to the rescue!

Join Deborah Ault (AKA “Nurse Deb”) of Ault International Medical Management as she explains the role of medical management, outlines the need-to-know questions for vetting medical management vendors, and so much more.

Our Mission

We believe transparency can transform healthcare purchasing to improve health outcomes and lower costs. Validation Institute advocates for a results-based, outcome-driven market with a three-pronged approach: validating vendor performance, educating the buyers of healthcare, and creating an exclusive community where the two can connect.

About Us

Validation Institute is an independent, third-party resource for health care purchasing professionals, health care vendors, and benefits advisors. Our focus is on transparency across the healthcare market as a way to reduce healthcare costs and improve outcomes. We move this forward by assuring that a vendor’s performance claims will materialize in practice, that healthcare buyers are educated on key health value and purchasing topics, and that the two sides have an easier time connecting.
