Fueling A DPC Model

FREE WEBINAR

What running on empty looks like: Countless hours on the phone. Claim disputes. Explaining a complicated, layered story over and over and over again. Disconnection. Confusion. Eye rolls. Deep breaths. Aspirin. And all at the expense of weakening the relationship between the patient and the provider. Cookie-cutter solutions don’t cut it anymore.

Join us to learn more about the value of integrating data and care within the DPC model. Nova will demonstrate why education, steerage, and data sharing in this arrangement are keys to its success. Service providers, broker/agents, and employers shouldn’t settle for just another third party administer. They need to look for a partner who will keep the needs of their specific population in mind while developing creative strategies on how to best integrate data and care into this model so it’s effective for all stakeholders:

  • Providers – spend more time building relationships with patients.
  • Members –  gain increased satisfaction and experience less headaches.
  • Employers – achieve cost savings AND improved health outcomes.
  • Brokers – realize they don’t have to be pushed out of this model, but they need a plan. Their role as an educator must be top of mind.

Fuel for Thought: Creative plan designs that cut costs and improve health outcomes. It’s possible…with the right integration partner. Register today!

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!

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The role of medical management
  • What key things you can ask medical management vendors to determine exactly how far they go
  • The importance of ALL your chosen vendors adherence to the Health Rosetta Principles and integrating data and operations
  • Your role as a plan sponsor/employer or benefits consultant
  • How to ensure it all comes together

About the Speaker: Deborah Ault (“Nurse Deb”), RN, CCM, CCP, AATMC, BCPA, MBA has been a Registered Nurse for 29 years.

Is There a CURE for Employees’ Surprise Medical Bills?

57% of Americans have received a surprise medical bill in the last five years. For those who haven’t received one, it’s likely that their employer is picking up the tab (often times without even realizing it). Surprise medical bills stress employees out and could be inflating employer health care costs unnecessarily. It’s a lose-lose situation for everyone – except the provider.

Our panel of pricing and consent-to-treatment experts explain what you can do to cure surprise billing for emergency visits and admissions.

Featured Panelists:

  • Marty Makary, New York Times bestselling author of “The Price We Pay”
  • Marilyn Bartlett, #13 on Fortune’s 2019 list of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders
  • David Contorno (E Powered Benefits), 2019 Health Value Award winner
  • Al Lewis (Quizzify), trade-bestselling author of “Cracking Health Costs”

Controlling Health Care Costs and Improving Outcomes with CHVP

Part of HR.com’s Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium – A Monday Innovations Special Event

Everyone wants to save money on health care and improve employees’ lives, but the health care industry is nuanced, overly complex, and plagued by too many too-good-to-be-true marketing claims.  Many HR professionals, even those with years of experience, don’t know where to start to make meaningful change. Knowing the key areas to tackle first, as well as the right questions to ask to more effectively select and manage your health care vendors or to work more productively with your benefits advisors can make a dramatic difference in health care spend and quality.

This webcast is part of HR.com’s Global HR Tech Virtual Symposium and provides an overview of Validation Institute’s Certified Health Value Professional (CHVP) designation and training program, which equips benefits and HR professionals with the tools and knowledge they need to more effectively manage their health benefits plans and related costs, as well as employee outcomes.

Wellness Program Alert: How to Avoid Getting Sued Like Yale

In this webinar, we will cover the key points in the complaint and explain how Yale’s “rookie mistakes” led to this outcome.
