Virtual Forum: Health Plan Population Health Management Strategies: How Policy Affects Serving Complex Members
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Care for individuals with behavioral health conditions typically costs 2-3 times as much, on average, as care for individuals without a behavioral health condition. To address this rate of health care service usage, health plans are managing the care of complex consumers, including those consumers with mental illnesses and addiction disorders, through the latest developments in population health management techniques. Payers want to improve the quality and cost of care for consumers with chronic medical and complex behavioral health needs, as well as improve outcomes.
During this Virtual Forum, you will hear industry trends and highlights from expert Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer of OPEN MINDS. She will be speaking with Deb Adler, Former Senior Vice President of Network Strategy for Optum, about her experiences with innovative approaches and best practices to address the needs of complex consumers. These strategies include both policy changes towards more concerted care integration and population health management programs driven by health plans.
