KEYNOTE: “HEALTHCARE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION ISN’T DIGITAL AFTER ALL”
Leading healthcare organizations want to do more than just keep up – they want to innovate and optimize. They want to be creative and efficient, they want to create more with less. They want digital transformation. But leveraging the immense changes and the vast opportunities that the digital era ushered in doesn’t start with digital at all. It’s about people: changing outdated mindsets, behaviors, and processes.

In this forward-thinking keynote, you’ll learn how your healthcare organization can tackle these changes. Nancy will explore how to build a case for a people-first approach and drive real transformation to achieve a digital culture.

KEYNOTE: “THE GLOBAL IMPACT OF BEHAVIOR CHANGE AND HEALTH ACTION”
Driving health action often requires changing behaviors that may be firmly entrenched. Behavioral science involves the study of human actions and reactions, and is a powerful tool for driving desired behavior of both individuals and entire populations. Understanding the principles of behavioral science, specifically concepts regarding the use of defaults, can help provide a longitudinal view of populations that is an important perspective when creating change.

In this keynote you’ll learn specifically how behavioral science has been used to drive public policy around obesity and other major health issues today, and how those lessons can be used to make an impact within healthcare programs in the private sector.

“HOW DATA SCIENCE ACTUALLY HUMANIZES HEALTH ENGAGEMENT”
As the healthcare industry continues its evolution toward personalization, it’s important to understand that critical components – like data – need to be viewed from a different perspective. Healthcare organizations that continue to treat members like a number will fall far behind as others pursue engagement strategies based on personalization. Learn how data is the key to transform your health engagement strategy to drive meaningful action.

“NEW POLICIES AND TRENDS IN SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH”
Social determinants of health (SDoH) complicate engagement and access to care, and more health plans and providers are diving into how to address them. SDoH account for more than 60% of health care expenditures for low-income and elderly patients, and new benefits and services bring new hope of “bending the cost curve”. New policies in both Medicare and Medicaid are driving a payer arms race and innovative new approaches to confronting housing, home care, food security, transportation, and social isolation/loneliness for vulnerable patients, to name a few. This session examines the state of play and what to expect.
