AHIP's National Conferences on Medicare, Medicaid & Duals

Join us in Washington D.C. on October 14-18th as we join other experts from across the healthcare universe, including leadership from health plans, government agencies, health care providers, academia, and other stakeholders, as they advance the discussion around the most pressing topics impacting payers that offer government-sponsored programs.

HealthEdge is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of this event, which will dive deep into the priorities, opportunities, and future directions for our nation’s government healthcare programs. 


Concurrent Session:

Payers and Providers – How to Create a Win/Win With Critical Data

Monday, October 15 from 11:40 AM - 12:25 PM in the Commerce Room

Payers and providers have historically been at odds, with conflicting goals and competing priorities that undermine true alignment. Health plans have a unique opportunity to share critical data and insights with hospitals and other providers to help them lower costs and effectively reach high risk and high utilizing patients proactively.  This session will provide insights based on the real experience of University of Maryland Medical Systems Health Plan and how UMMS is working collaboratively with hospitals in and out of their network.  Attendees will learn how UMMS is enabling those hospitals to look outside the walls of their facilities, by sharing data and the accompanying analysis.  This unique collaboration results in a greater understanding of the holistic view of the patient and helps connect community resources to more traditional providers.  Attendees will understand how these steps help enable lower costs and improved outcomes, with shared gains for all stakeholders.
