The AHIP Institute in Nashville, TN on June 3rd through the 5th is particularly exciting for me to attend for three reasons:
1. It’s focused around the needs, issues and challenges of health plans and payers – an industry I’ve worked in for over 20 years.
2. I’m one of four people selected by AHIP to be a social media ambassador for the event.
3. It’s in Nashville, TN – a place where I lived for 10 years, where my youngest son was born and where all four of my kids attended grade school.
Healthcare Literacy, Transparency & Communications!
Since I strongly believe that improving health care literacy, increasing transparency of health care quality and cost information, and sharing information via an omni-channel approach holds the key to improving the U.S. healthcare system, I'm especially looking forward to the following concurrent sessions.
Note: I’ve included the Twitter account for any session presenter that had one.
