Why Employers Won’t Return Your Call: Health Tech Within the Payer Model
We all agree that health technology solutions can help many people when employers and payers purchase them for their users. Despite the back-end strategies, glossy apps, and researched expectations, we know that most health technology companies are unsuccessful when networking the employer and payer ecosystem.

Payers and employers are both trying to find effective ways to get good solutions in front of their users and experience positive impacts to healthcare costs.

She will clarify specific strategies related to understanding the sales process, aligning the technology to what payers and employers need and creating a framework for a successful proposal and proposal process.

Diversity, Uniqueness, and Leadership in Health Strategy
Although a broader health system should bring more access to our diversity and uniqueness, we are finding that it is actually the opposite. Potential participants based on gender, race, disability, etc. are often not accounted for in corporate health strategy.

Further surveys indicate that all parts of organizations are expected to participate in realizing this goal including the strategy and design of an organization’s health strategy.
Sylvia will share specific strategies on how we can broaden and deepen the impact of our health strategy within our corporate populations. She will explore methods to impact policies, current unknowns, organization within human resources, and metrics and analytics to meet current needs and influence more positive health outcomes.
