In its 24th year, the Annual Conference is the premier event for the National Alliance. Each year, it hosts thought leaders, policymakers and key health care experts from across the country, who share insights and expertise on the emerging trends, innovations and opportunities in the changing health care marketplace.
The conference highlights the National Alliance’s position as a national thought leader in business performance, health, well-being and value-based approaches in health care. The National Alliance is a leading educator for business coalitions and public and private health care purchasers and provides several educational and networking opportunities throughout the year.
This 3-day event provides learning opportunities through interactive sessions, educational discussions, employer round tables, demonstrations, and exhibit floor events that all encourage networking sharing and learning. This year’s topics include innovative approaches and strategies to well-being, population health, employee empowerment, special sessions on health care policy and updates on the AHCA, along with other emerging topics.
Cancer is a disease unlike any other.
“Employers report a level of complexity in managing employees’ cancer-related needs beyond that associated with any other type of disease or condition. This complexity relates to the costs and definition of quality cancer care, the extensive number and array of services needed to support employees and their families when faced with a cancer diagnosis, and the multi-faceted role a benefit professional must play in assisting employees. Perhaps above all, the most important factor driving complexity in workplace cancer management may be the range and depth of intense emotions, most notably fear, that often accompanies the diagnosis. Dealing with an employee’s understandable fear is usually the first issue benefit professionals mention when asked about what comes to mind when dealing with cancer in the workplace and, as several put it, ‘fear drives cost.'” From “Cancer and the Workplace: The Employer Perspective” by the Northeast Business Group on Health
Given the unique and complex issues related to cancer in the workplace, The Action Group has convened a panel of experts to share their perspective, deepen understanding of the issues, and offer actionable solutions to Minnesota employers. The panel will address:
Five in 10 Minnesota men, and 4 in 10 women, are likely to develop cancer in their lifetime. The issues are complex, the answers aren’t easy, and the stakes are high – life and death for the patient, and significant cost for employers. Even so, you’ll be better prepared to address cancer in the workplace and walk away with tangible resources specifically designed for benefits professionals.
