CEO/Innovators Roundtable Sponsors 

Join us from Thursday lunch through Friday lunch on June 20-21, 2019 in Chicago for our 14th annual, invitation-only CEO/Innovators Roundtable. This year’s theme is “Innovation Driving Value,” and we will be hearing from a variety of innovators who have created new ways of enhancing clinical care and service and reducing cost for patients, payers, and providers. The Roundtable will take place at Foley’s office in Chicago and will be convened by BDC Advisors, Foley & Lardner LLP, and Phillips DiPisa & Associates, whom we are pleased to introduce as our new program partner and encourage you to learn more about their firm.

The ongoing impact of health reform and growth in health care spending continue to demand innovation to thrive in a fiercely competitive marketplace. This year’s Roundtable will explore where innovation is making major contributions to improving value, including:

  • The impact predictive modeling is having on managing utilization and cost
  • New payer-provider contracting models that are aligning incentives and improving patient experience
  • Efforts to reduce drug costs, the fastest-growing component of health care expenditures
  • Integrated care models linking behavioral and physical health providers and systems
  • New “digital” health plans and how they’re increasing value for members and providers

As always, we have assembled an impressive group of innovative panelists to lead our discussions (see the agenda below). But the heart of the Roundtable is you – our participants – whom we rely on for provocative questions and contributions that educate us all.
