DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The TriZetto Group, Inc. will host its 10th annual Executive Vision Summit November 8-10 at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Ariz. The focus of this year’s summit will be on new strategies and approaches that payers and providers can use to reinvent the way they operate, collaborate and engage with consumers/patients to improve the cost and quality of care.
An exclusive, invitation-only event, the Executive Vision Summit brings together senior executives from leading healthcare organizations for a thought-provoking look into the future of the healthcare industry. TriZetto has expanded its 2011 program to incorporate both payer and provider views amidst a backdrop of emerging care and payment delivery models driving increased payer-provider collaboration, a rapidly growing individual market driven by government regulation, and the nation’s ongoing political debate over the future of healthcare in America.
The summit will kick-off with a point-counterpoint well-timed against today’s dynamic political landscape. Leading political strategists Robert Gibbs and Karl Rove, will square off on politics, the economy and healthcare reform to provide what is expected to be a lively and engaging interaction.
Ochsner Health System CEO Patrick J. Quinlan, M.D. will deliver the keynote address and joins an impressive roster of speakers that includes a panel of leading executives from commercial, Medicare and provider-owned health plans, as well as health system communities.
“Healthcare reform is driving new business challenges for both payers and providers that require world class, technology-enabled solutions,” noted Trace Devanny, president and CEO of TriZetto. “TriZetto’s Executive Vision Summit is a unique opportunity for health industry executives to explore strategies to help health plans and other payer organizations, physicians and hospitals enhance efficiency and improve the quality of care delivery through increased connectivity and collaboration.”
The summit will also feature industry experts Shubham Singhal, a partner with McKinsey & Company, and Jeffrey Hayzlett, social media and marketing expert, speaking on consumer engagement and social media in an increasingly retail world; as well as Jon Kingsdale, Ph.D., managing director at Wakely Consulting Group and lecturer in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School speaking on health insurance exchanges and the evolving distribution model.
“TriZetto’s Executive Vision Summit takes a comprehensive approach to positioning payer and provider organizations for future success in an environment of dramatic change,” said Dan Spirek, EVP and chief marketing officer for TriZetto. “Exciting new opportunities are emerging that can drive value in ways that have not been considered previously. Innovative new technology-enabled solutions will give both payers and providers the opportunity to support new models of payment and care delivery; drive emerging value-based initiatives such as payment bundling and episodes of care; and increase connectivity at the point-of-care to streamline care, claims processing and payment.”
