HealthEdge To Keynote 2014 Healthcare IT Summit

Presentation will discuss how payors can use modern technology to navigate the perfect storm of changing consumer buying habits and regulatory requirements

Burlington, MA, October 29, 2014 —HealthEdge®, provider of the only integrated financial, administrative and clinical platform for healthcare payors, today announced that Ray Desrochers, executive vice president, will deliver the payor keynote at the 2014 Healthcare IT Summit. Desrochers will present “Navigating Healthcare’s Perfect Storm,” a discussion of the key changes that are currently underway in the market.

The Healthcare IT Summit brings together industry analysts, IT executives from healthcare insurer and provider organizations, and leading vendors for uniquely collaborative discussions on today’s pressing business and IT issues, best practices and the latest tools and technology that will improve business performance. Desrochers’ presentation will be supported by the latest data from HealthEdge’s “State of the Payor” industry survey, including the health care delivery models payors are most likely to participate in over the next three years.

“There is no doubt now that the Accountable Care Act is having a tremendous impact on the market, forcing payors that were on the fence about embracing change to accelerate their plans,” said Desrochers. “Our presentation will show those areas where change has already begun, and will offer insight into how payors across the industry are using technology to transform their organizations.”

Desrochers’ keynote will take place on Tuesday, November 4th at 10:00 a.m. PT in Olympic Ballroom II at the Hyatt Century Plaza, Los Angeles, CA. Additionally, HealthEdge’s Senior Vice President of Customer Success, Bill Jollie, will deliver a customer case study to three board rooms of prominent payor executives on the use of technology to drive next-generation business initiatives. These sessions will help payors to recognize and navigate the disruptive change in today’s health insurance market, and will demonstrate how one organization leveraged modern technology to adapt to this new business reality. The board room sessions will be held at various times throughout the Summit.

Attendees are also welcome to visit HealthEdge in booth #121. For more information or to meet with company executives during the Summit, please contact Melissa O’Dowd at 781-419-6170.
