He has also been recognized as one of the 10 most influential people in health care by Modern Healthcare magazine. Andy’s keynote will provide insights and vision for Minnesota’s position as a health care leader.
Helen’s impressive career has resulted in countless practical solutions to the nation’s growing crisis of rapidly rising costs and affordability of care. She will reveal why employers must care about performance measurement, and propose best practices for developing cost metrics that matter.
A renowned health economics and claims data analysis expert, Steve will assess ACA options and their economic effects. With ACA turbulence among 2017’s top employer concerns, he will demonstrate how purchasers can do together what none can do alone to ensure the flexibility and sustainability of health care benefits for all.
