HealthEdge to Present Keynote Address "Survey Says: Insight, Answers and Advice from the Frontlines" at the 2012 Healthcare IT Summit

Burlington, MA, November 6, 2012 —HealthEdge®, provider of the only modern, enterprise-class software platform for healthcare payors, today announced that Ray Desrochers, executive vice president, will deliver the payor keynote address at the invitation-only 2012 Healthcare IT Summit. Desrochers will present “Survey Says: Insight, Answers and Advice from the Frontlines.” The presentation highlights key business issues facing healthcare payors, and is based on the most recent “State of the Payor Industry” survey conducted by HealthEdge.

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 provide attendees with insights into the challenges they are currently facing and steps they can take to compete in the next-generation healthcare economy.

“The results of our survey clearly demonstrate the level of anxiety that currently exists within the payor community as they work to address the rapidly evolving needs of the new healthcare marketplace,” said Desrochers. “Payors recognize that business as usual is no longer an option, and they are looking for ways to leverage modern technology platforms to enable support for new business models, address regulatory changes, reduce out-of-control administrative costs and provide new levels of transparency and customer service. Our presentation will provide a framework that will help them to achieve these business goals.”

Desrochers’ presentation will be given during the 2012 Healthcare IT Summit at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, Florida on Tuesday, November 13th at 9:00 AM ET. Additionally, HealthEdge will be presenting “The Next Wave: Five-Steps for Adapting to Constant Change” at various times throughout the Summit.
