The IBI/Conference Board Health and Productivity Forum

Seeing the Whole Picture: Health, Well-being, Medical care, Pharmacy, Absence and Productivity
SEPTEMBER 19 - 20, 2019 | SWISSOTEL CHICAGO | CHICAGO, IL

Pre-Conference Workshop:

Potent Medicine - Data, Technology and the Magic of Behavior Change


September 18, 2019

Back and neck pain erode quality of life for more than one third of adults every day and drain more than $132 billion dollars in medical costs from American businesses each year. Low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability and chronic pain among adults and one of the most common reasons for which patients are treated with opioids.

Getting a handle on those costs before they become a crisis has become a priority for all employers ... but what is safe, effective and affordable? In this workshop you’ll learn how to use emerging digital health therapies to help members recover and get back their quality of life without breaking the bank.

AGENDA
SEPTEMBER 19 - 20, 2019
SWISSOTEL CHICAGO,CHICAGO, IL
September 19 - 20, 2019

During this conference, we’ll address the full dimensions of workforce health and productivity as they cut across all programs in the value equation.

Forum content will focus on the interrelationships among four key topic areas:

Health and wellbeing:

  • How does poor health influence the ability of our employees to do their jobs?
  • How do healthy workers impact medical costs, leave from work and the performance of our business?
  • And what additional costs do we take on to avoid business losses when people don’t perform? What are proven strategies to engage employees in health and wellbeing improvement?

Medical and pharmacy plan design and care:

  • Is our health plan working for or against enrollees' efforts to become better health-care consumers?
  • What are plan designs trying to accomplish and how do co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance fit in?
  • How do we get beyond unit costs for both care and prescription drugs, and focus on the total cost of care and resulting outcomes?
  • How will specialty pharmaceuticals and biosimilars fit into the equation?

Absence, disability and productivity:

  • Does our plan effectively address the top drivers of illness-related lost productivity?
  • How do other policies such as work accommodations and disability insurance mesh with the design of our health plan?
  • How will work accommodations support employee and business needs?
  • What are the implications of a total-absence-management policy?
  • How do we better understand the impact of absence on our business?

Data, metrics and reporting:

  • What are the data and metrics that are critical for employers to understand and how can their vendor partners help them in understanding the full array of costs and outcomes?
  • How can data and reporting be made simpler and more understandable for employers, so that cost shifting from one program to another is reduced?
  • How can data and reporting be linked across health and related programs rather than reflect separate initiatives?

The joint Forum will feature sponsored plenary, breakout, and pre-conference sessions in addition to the limited number of un-sponsored breakout sessions. An exhibit hall also will be integrated into the event for the first time. Learn more about available sponsorship opportunities.
