From October 25-27, the MedeAnalytics payer community came together at La Cantera Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas for the 2017 Payer Solutions Summit. The event gave attendees the opportunity to collaborate to better understand how to keep up with the growth and evolution of the industry, with the support of MedeAnalytics’ solutions and thought leaders.
Our very own CEO, Paul Kaiser, kicked off the event, introducing himself and discussing his aspirations for the company. Kaiser highlighted how impressed he was with our committed associates, fantastic clients and great technology offerings. He realized how special of a company MedeAnalytics was within the first five months of his new role. Kaiser concluded his presentation by outlining his hopes for MedeAnalytics, which include continuing to evolve, innovate and scale in terms of client value management and transparency.
In addition to our CEO, Scott Hampel, SVP of product and strategy, and Tyler Downs, CTO, took the stage to discuss product innovation alignment and the payer portfolio. They also explored the company’s technology strategy and plans for growth, including platform innovations, machine learning, guided analysis, third-party integration and more.
In addition to key thought leaders within the company, several payer clients also delivered presentations that demonstrated their unique use of the MedeAnalytics platform and the results they achieved. Some of the representatives included Mississippi Division of Medicaid, St. Joseph Hospital, part of Covenant Health, Presbyterian Healthcare Services, MVP Health Care, and Kaiser Permanente.
Our payer clients discussed their experiences working with the company in various capacities, including:
- Creating employer presentation reports
- Establishing a clinical data exchange
- Population health and benefit plan design
- Establishing an enterprise approach to analytics
- Using data to support a total medical expense initiative
- Collaboration during organizational change
- Implementation best practices
In addition to learning and sharing ideas, the event also made time for attendees to kick back and have fun. The event started with a cocktail reception featuring a mariachi band, Texas Hold’em, a rousing game of cornhole along with a variety of food. The Summit even included an evening on the Riverwalk’s Howl at the Moon, known for its dueling pianos performance. The event also featured star athlete, Herschel Walker, former NFL player, who delivered an inspirational keynote speech that left sports fans in awe. Walker also made himself available for autographs and photos following his address. The event concluded with excursions to explore the best of San Antonio, including a natural bridge obstacle course and zip line, natural bridge cavern exploration and an art and brew walking tour.
