The Challenge of Change: Health Plan Innovation in a New Health Care Marketplace
“Welcome to the New York Health Plan Association’s (HPA) 2015 Annual Conference, “The Challenge of Change: Health Plan Innovation in a New Health Care Marketplace.” Today’s conference will highlight some of the most innovative approaches health plans in New York have taken to advance quality of care and efficiency for their members. From pioneering payment reform strategies and consumer engagement initiatives, health plans have been challenged to realign how health care is delivered and paid for. Today’s speakers will share their insights into the challenges and opportunities health plans face, how they are tackling these situations, and what they have learned so far. Our goal is that attendees will discover how these lessons might apply in their own companies as well as how they could enhance collaborative efforts across the health care system.”
