BROOKFIELD, Wis., June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Connecture, Inc., the leading provider of Web-based information systems used to create health insurance marketplaces, today announced that Christopher Neuharth, the company's vice president of product design and user experience, will present a session at the America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2014 conference held June 11-13 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. The interactive session will provide attendees with a frank appraisal of the evolving single-carrier private exchange landscape and offer strategies insurers can use to educate consumers while empowering them to select and enroll in the right health plan.
In the session, Neuharth will also demonstrate how carriers can use the newest, next generation, single-carrier marketplaces to serve and keep customers as they transition from employer-sponsored to individual coverage at different points in their lives – a capability that will increasingly be crucial for success. He will also share insights gained from Connecture's significant research into how Americans purchase health insurance, as well as proven steps carriers can take to engage the full spectrum of shoppers, including those who are selecting and enrolling in coverage for the first time.
The session will be of particular value to industry professionals that sell or administer health insurance products sold through single-carrier private exchanges. Session details include:
- What: The interactive session "Your Consumers, Your Exchange: What the next generation marketplace can look like."
- When: Thursday, June 12, from 4:55 p.m. to 5:40 p.m. PDT.
- Where: Room 6A at the Washington State Convention Center – Note: Attendees are also invited to visit Connecture at booth # 908 in the Institute 2014 Exhibit Hall.
- Who: Session presenter Christopher Neuharth, vice president of product design and user experience at Connecture.
"For carriers, the shift to operate a private exchange presents a unique opportunity," said Neuharth. "Health plans are uniquely positioned to personalize their exchange around their members' personal history and health needs. As we see consumers shift between group, individual, subsidized, and Medicare products there is an opportunity to simplify these decisions, increase retention, and build customer loyalty. In this session, we will discuss what this type of solution can look like and how to align it towards your long-term goals."
