Health Reform in a Nutshell: What Businesses Need to Know Now

Date/Time: Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 2:00PM EST

Now that health care reform is a reality, most business decision makers are assessing what the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as health care reform, means for their organization. That assessment has become a daunting challenge impacting companies of all sizes in every industry.

Developing a plan to comply with the law and manage health care costs can be cumbersome and overwhelming even for the best business decision makers.

Most experts agree, employers will continue to struggle to find ways to keep health care cost down and provide access to the coverage their employees need. With health care costs on the rise, employees are placing an even greater importance on their benefit options.

Many employers and employees will look toward flexible benefit options as they seek ways to manage rising health care expenses.

Join us for this important and timely discussion.

Live Broadcast: 7 Steps to Building a Culture of Health

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at 2:00PM EST

A healthcare benefit approach that relies primarily on providing medical services after an employee gets sick is a failed strategy. Enlightened employers strive to help workers and their families improve their health, and then remain healthy.

Join Ray Fabius, Chief Medical Officer for the Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters and a member of the Change Agent Work Group (CAWG), and other CAWG industry experts to learn about the Employer Health Asset Management roadmap. This report was created by the CAWG, a group of industry thought leaders and influencers working in collaboration to accelerate improvement in American workforce health and productivity.

This live video broadcast will provide practical guidance for introducing cost-effective employee health programs and creating a culture of health. The roadmap involves seven main elements requiring involvement and accountability from both employers and workers:

  • Organizational vision of health
  • Senior management participation and commitment
  • Workplace policies and the work environment
  • Diagnostics, informatics and health metrics
  • Health goals and program elements
  • Value-based benefit design, and
  • Patient-centered medical home and chronic care management

Listen in on this important conversation and discover how your organization can benefit from the work of these visionaries in American healthcare management.
