Premise Health hosts fourth Client Forum, Welcomes health benefits leaders to Nashville
Direct healthcare company Premise Health, headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn., will host its fourth Client Forum April 23 – 25, 2019. The annual event brings Premise clients, which include benefits leaders from respected organizations across the country, to Nashville to focus on how they are transforming healthcare for their teams.
“Premise is privileged to work with some of the world’s largest and most innovative organizations, who are pushing healthcare forward for their members and dependents,” said Jami Doucette, president of Premise Health. “The Client Forum offers an opportunity for these leaders to learn from and be inspired by their peers, supporting their incredible work to help people live healthier.”
Premise clients include self-funded employers, labor unions, associations and Taft-Hartley funds, in industries ranging from manufacturing and defense to financial services and entertainment. Together, organizations attending the Client Forum offer benefits to millions of people, making them a powerful force for change in the fragmented healthcare industry.
Taking Health Forward
With the theme of “Taking Health Forward,” the Client Forum offers attendees the opportunity to share best practices for direct healthcare delivery, explore industry trends and innovations, and engage with their colleagues and Premise leadership. This year, a prominent theme will be integration. More organizations are exploring innovative solutions to bridge the fragmentation and inefficiency that exist in healthcare, working to ensure their people have access to coordinated, high-quality care and exceptional experiences.
Sessions will explore innovation in onsite and nearsite primary care, pharmacy and occupational health; strategies for integrating benefits that help people live healthier, such as fitness, into the overall approach to wellness; and case studies from employers leading some of the nation’s most forward-looking benefits programs.
A Growing Trend
Attendance at the 2019 Premise Client Forum will be the highest to date, with 129 leaders from 76 organizations joining from across the U.S. This growth reflects the increasing number of organizations, particularly employers, who look to change how their people experience healthcare. In the past year, one-third of all organizations with 5,000 or more employees reported that they provide direct healthcare access, up from 17 percent in 2007.
“We’re proud to be at the center of a trend that is increasing access for people and their families, and leading to healthier organizations and workplaces,” Doucette said. “There is incredible momentum in our industry, and we look forward to continuing to drive solutions that deliver greater healthcare value.”
