Perspective: Healthcare Payers Transformation Assembly 2015
This IDC Health Insights Perspective discusses the Healthcare Payers Transformation Assembly event, held in Coconut Grove, Florida, from October 27 to 29, 2015. This event allowed a deeper dialog between executives from a wide variety of payers to compare their experiences and perspectives in leading their organizations through transformational initiatives in the post-reform healthcare marketplace. IDC was a content partner that led many of the event's structured activities, including roundtables and presentations. Other outside speakers who offered high-level perspectives included James Murray, VP, IT, of CVS; Jon Shreve, president and CEO of MCG; Jeff Myers, president and CEO of Medicaid Health Plans of America; and Fred Goldstein, president of Accountable Health. Approximately three dozen payer organizations were represented by their chief information officers and chief medical officers or their equivalents.
