Employer Program

In collaboration with Mercer, the Employer Program at HLTH explores employer innovations, exposes emerging technologies that hold the opportunity to generate sustainable change, and showcases solutions shaping the future of health: employer-led and consumer-centric.

Be Part of the Change

Don’t miss your opportunity to join peers and leaders from across the health ecosystem to ask one question: how do we create the future of health? With six sessions dedicated to employer interests and over a hundred more across the event, you’ll hear about solutions to some of the most pressing questions facing you today. When you join the Hosted Buyer Program (aka curated networking event) you can attend HLTH for free.

Employers are increasingly challenged to design consumer-centric health offerings that meet the needs and expectations of their workforce. HLTH provides an all-encompassing venue for employers to determine which solutions and strategies will best satisfy employees' health demands in an affordable and competitive manner.

To meet employees’ vast range of health needs, employers are going wide and far! From digital diabetes management to specialized fertility networks to on-site services to turn-key solutions that offer it all, employers are willing to test multiple modalities to provide the most effective solutions. Some have recently taken the plunge, while others have been at this for years, but the one thing they have in common is their willingness to try the most cutting-edge solutions in order to deliver a consumer-centric experience.

Brace yourselves, the latest health tech is hitting the employer market! Understanding how these developments are impacting the delivery of healthcare is crucial for employers. Hear from experts on blockchain, precision medicine, and machine learning who will help you understand the basics behind these “buzzwords” and make better decisions about the solutions that tout them.

When employers focus on the well-being of their low-wage workers, they tend to narrow in on a few areas of concern: health care affordability, encouraging better health behaviors, ensuring timely and appropriate access to care, and promoting the use of preventive services. Beyond these key areas lies the social determinants of health. Hear the direct experiences of new players who are exploring solutions to tackle these challenges.

In the midst of a new election, health policy is under the magnifying glass and bracing for major change. Employers need to be in-the-know as the health policy debate presses on to fully understand the future implications of any proposed changes. Engage with executives on the most pressing policy topics like Medicare-for-all, rebate reform, and safe-harbor plans.

We’ve heard the saying that “all healthcare is local,” but it can be hard to put this concept into practice for many national employers. Learn from leaders who have done the heavy lifting and developed unique strategies tailored to the specific needs of their population. From custom Center-of-Excellence approaches to local ACO plans to virtual solutions, these innovators are bringing creative solutions to a local level.

Mental & behavioral health seems to be the elephant in the room for employers big and small. Solutions have popped up from resilience to mindfulness to cognitive behavioral therapy, but how do we actually integrate them into employees’ everyday lives? Learn from employers who are truly moving the needle for those facing mental and behavioral health struggles.
