A robust, high-quality health benefit program can give employers an edge in today’s competitive hiring market. Beyond attracting talent, an employer’s benefit program is a significant percentage of their budget, and the foundation of what helps employees, and their families stay healthy and productive. But it isn’t easy to pull together Brokers, TPAs, PBMs, and network partners.

In this session, you’ll learn what to look for when choosing benefit partners and hear first-hand from other employers about what they’re doing, what they’re getting from their benefit partners, and why it matters.
This event has been approved for CE credit. You must attend the entire webinar from 10:00AM to 11:30AM CT to receive CE credit through OCI.
The Alliance Spring Symposium: Commitment to a Healthy Workforce

Wednesday, May 17, 2023
11:30am CT
Monona Terrace, Madison WI

With rising inflation, high healthcare costs, and a tight labor market, businesses are looking for solutions to keep their employees engaged and increase productivity.

Attendees will learn how to think differently to create a transformative culture that builds trust, fosters productivity, and retains talent. When organizations create a culture of accountability, especially when it comes to the health and well-being of their employees, they position themselves to manage change, implement critical initiatives, and create high-performing organizations.

CE Credits have been applied for.

2023 Healthcare Transformation Award Nominations

We’re accepting nominations for the 2023 Healthcare Transformation Awards! Do you know an employer, organization, or individual who demonstrated extraordinary commitment to, or achievement in, transforming healthcare? (You can also nominate yourself.)

Find a Doctor Update

There are some updates in our Find a Doctor tool to make it easier to find and view remote providers. Search results are now separated into two tabs; one displaying in-person, local providers and one displaying remote providers. Remote provider cards will have the same look and feel as local providers.

We’ve created a flyer you can share with your employees to communicate how these changes will look in the tool.
