Mental Health in the Workplace

As we move from pandemic to recovery, managing mental health in new and creative ways remains a top area of focus, whether providing new benefits or getting creative through community and connection. The effect of mental health on workers—and the workplace—is staggering. Just consider the statistics: 1 in 5 US adults experience mental illness each year.

In this webinar you will learn how a workplace can impact employee mental health and how to recognize the signs of mental distress in yourself and others. You'll also identify how to encourage, support, and maintain a culture of mental health and wellbeing, and learn specific actions you can take to increase mental health and wellbeing in your organization. With the help of our expert panel we will discuss ways in which organizations and businesses can address this important topic respectfully and responsibly.

Patient Stewardship: Care Navigation & Medical Management

May 20, 2021

Despite all of the cost containment strategies that can be deployed through plan administration, benefit design, and point solutions – the fact remains that healthcare is complex and individual patients need advocates they can trust to navigate through their healthcare journey.

This session dives deep into the topic of care navigation, social determinants of health, & medical management-- all major lynchpins underpinning a high-performance health plan strategy. We’ll break down the issues with status quo care management offerings, what successful care navigation looks like, and how a focus in this area transforms patient experiences and health outcomes.

Value-Based Primary Care

May 20, 2021

Despite this reality, primary care has been de-valued within the current healthcare system, oftentimes relegated as a “referral” generator to higher cost specialists or health system services.
