HealthEdge to Lead Customer Panel on Innovative Care Coordination at 2017 AHIP Institute & Expo

Concurrent session will explore the development of innovative, collaborative and technology-driven programs for effective care coordination

Burlington, MA, June 6, 2017—HealthEdge®, provider of the only integrated financial, administrative and clinical platform for health insurers, today announced that it will be joined onstage by FirstCare Health Plans as part of the company’s annual participation in AHIP Institute & Expo, taking place June 7-9, 2017 in Austin, Texas. In addition to hosting the concurrent session with FirstCare, HealthEdge will also exhibit in Booth #619.

The concurrent session, entitled, “Developing Innovative Collaboration for Effective Care Coordination,” will feature Dr. Adolfo M. Valadez, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer of FirstCare, Barbara Berger, Vice President of Care Management Services at FirstCare, and Kim Ingram, Chief Nursing Officer of HealthEdge. HealthEdge Vice President of Marketing Harry Merkin will serve as moderator and will lead this discussion of real-world examples and results from payer-provider collaboration that integrate innovative technology with high-touch, hyper-local approaches to care coordination.

“High-touch human involvement is often disconnected from the most modern technology, which, for high-risk patients, can make the sharing of actionable data between payers and disparate providers a challenge,” said Merkin. “Data-driven collaborative care orchestrated by payers, providers, community resources and beyond is instrumental to achieving positive outcomes, and our group of experts in the field are eager to share their experience bridging this divide.”

The HealthEdge breakfast briefing will take place on Friday, June 9 at 7:30 a.m. CT in room 19AB at the Austin Convention Center. Conference attendees are also welcome to visit HealthEdge in the Institute exhibit hall in booth #619 and visit the company’s website to schedule a meeting or learn more about the company’s activities at this annual industry event.
