Greater Cincinnati Compensation & Benefits Association - Health Care Benefit Trends Program; Tuesday, June 2, 2016

Good morning everyone!  I'd like to extend a personal invitation to all HR and Total Rewards Practitioners to attend the GCCBA's 2nd Program for 2016! 

As employers continue looking for ways to slow health care cost increases, many are turning to trendsetting ideas for cost control and to better manage population health.  Please join us on June 2 as our two speakers, Joe Harten from Mercer and Matt Cook from Omada Health, share more on these issues.

Our presentation starts with selected highlights from Mercer’s 2015 Annual Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans. You’ll hear about health plan cost increases for 2015, how employers are slowing that growth and tactics to better manage population health — such as telemedicine, transparency tools and new technology solutions.

In addition to learning about insights from Mercer’s Survey, we will also share information on the explosion of new digital solutions entering the market.  You will learn about the overall landscape of technology, behavioral economics, mobile applications and social networking.  Along with hearing more about the general framework of this new frontier, we will also hear about a best-in-class point solution from Omada in the digital therapeutics space.

This program has been submitted for HRCI recertification credit.
