BOSTON, Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Chilmark Research, with support from Founding Sponsors CareEvolution and Cerner, is thrilled to announce the expanded agenda of the inaugural Convergence Conference to be held in Boston, MA on October 4-6, 2017.
Gary Loveman, EVP and President of Consumer Health and Services at Aetna, will deliver a payer's perspective on convergence through an overview of Aetna's partnering strategy with providers and how Aetna intends to more deeply support providers, meeting providers where they are in their transition to fee-for-value service models. Here is a peek at some of Aetna's progress so far.
Daniel J. Roth, M.D., Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer of Trinity Health, has also been confirmed as a keynote following Dr. Loveman. Dr. Roth will provide a rich perspective of one of the nation's largest healthcare systems, detailing some of their approaches, strategic insights, and key lessons learned to date as they follow their path to convergence.
Joining Dr. Loveman and Dr. Roth at this industry-first event are such luminaries as Dr. John Halamka of Beth Israel Deaconess, Dr. Sachin Jain, CEO of CareMore, Paul Black, CEO of Allscripts, and Dr. John Bulger, CMO of Geisinger – and many others representing the innovators in healthcare that are aggressively moving toward a converged model of care – shaping up to be the only feasible approach to meet quadruple aim goals.
Convergence 2017 will highlight examples of innovations in healthcare technology, business models, and delivery systems as the lines between providers and payers continue to blur in response to the inevitable growth of value-based care.
"No other research firm has the depth and background in understanding the complexities of convergence," says John Moore, Founder and Managing Partner of Chilmark Research. "Our Convergence Conference will facilitate the guidance needed for any healthcare organization to successfully pursue their strategic convergence initiatives."
