Innovative approaches to promoting wellness and managing chronic conditions will be the focus of a Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC) conference on April 8—the second of four HSC conferences on significant health policy topics sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), DMAA: The Care Continuum Alliance and the American College of Preventive Medicine.

Wellness and prevention strategies are fast becoming a standard feature of employer-based health benefits. What approaches are paying off? Likewise, coordinating care for patients with multiple chronic conditions is a challenge in the fragmented U.S. health care system. How are health care providers and payers reengineering care delivery for patients with chronic conditions?

The conference will convene leading experts to discuss cutting-edge employer approaches to promote health and wellness and innovative payer and provider efforts to improve care for people with chronic conditions.

HSC President Paul B. Ginsburg, Ph.D., will moderate the conference and speakers include:

  • L. Allen Dobson, Jr., M.D., chairman, North Carolina Community Care Networks

  • D.W. Edington, Ph.D., professor and director, University of Michigan Health Management Research Center

  • Stephen E. Saunders, M.D., M.P.H., chief medical officer, APS Healthcare

  • Amy Schultz, M.D., M.P.H., director, prevention and community health, Allegiance Health

  • Janet Tomcavage, R.N., M.S.N., vice president of health services, Geisinger Health Plan

Attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Dee Edington's new book, Zero Trends: Health as a Serious Economic Strategy, a comprehensive guide to employer-sponsored health management programs.

The April 8 conference will be the second of four conferences organized and conducted by HSC and sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), DMAA-The Care Continuum Alliance and the American College of Preventive Medicine. Under the sponsorship arrangement, HSC and the three sponsoring organizations jointly choose the conference topics, while HSC is solely responsible for organizing and conducting the conferences.
