careform 2018 agenda preview

Keynote Speakers

CareForum 2018 features four nationally recognized keynote speakers sharing their expertise and thought leadership to help your organization succeed and thrive.
 

Marilyn Tavenner
Former President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP)
and Former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)


Looking Forward to Future Changes in Health and Human Services and Anticipating What’s Next for the Industry
A discussion with Marilyn Tavenner, hosted by Mediware CEO Bill Miller, featuring audience Q&A.

Agencies throughout the U.S. Department Health & Human Services continue to signal their increasing emphasis on delivering quality care. Most notably, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are focusing on new value-based payment models. The trajectory of the health and human services industry affects the vital care you provide, and you need perspective to ensure your agency’s success for years to come. Marilyn Tavenner — former President and CEO of AHIP and Administrator of CMS — will give you that perspective at CareForum 2018. Join Marilyn for a forward-looking armchair discussion with audience Q&A, hosted by Mediware CEO Bill Miller. Marilyn will share her thoughts on what’s next for Medicare and Medicaid; how the 2018 political landscape in Washington will shape the industry; and how we can better connect community services and health care to help more people in need.

Oppositioning: One Surprising Strategy for Innovation and Differentiation
What can tiny houses, Spartan races, knuckleball pitchers, armless archers, Snapchat, unibrows, and Minecraft teach us about innovation and differentiation? We all know that innovation and differentiation are essential, but developing and implementing truly unique ideas seems very difficult, and most fail to become more creative and distinctive. The solution is surprisingly simple. A singular method for finding unconventional ideas that will dramatically improve your ability to stand out and produce an endless supply of original breakthroughs. You’ll go from unconventional to unforgettable to unstoppable. 
 

Ann Oliva

Senior Policy Advisor for Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH)
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Special Needs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
 

Data with Purpose: Connecting Health and Social Issues to Help Communities Thrive
Health and social issues are deeply interconnected. Human services professionals know that a person’s presenting condition — whether it’s homelessness, addiction, or a health issue — is rarely a singular need with a singular solution. To find solutions that help individuals thrive, we need system-level thinking and planning, as well as innovation at every level of service. This kind of collaboration at scale requires intelligent, actionable data gathered from multiple sources. In this session, we will explore creative, multidisciplinary approaches to problem solving that can improve care across virtually any service setting.

 

Jake Poore
President and Chief Experience Officer of Integrated Loyalty Systems


Creating Patient Loyalty by Providing Exceptional Patient Experiences
Patients today say they want to be treated as individuals and not just identified by their acuity or clinical ID number. They tell us that exceptional experiences occur when we consistently meet their expectations on what we provide (the clinical care side) while exceeding their expectations on how we provide it (the service side). In the highly competitive health care marketplace, patient experience is a top driver of patient loyalty and marketshare.
