Hotel Venue Information

The only national event focused on the emerging innovations disrupting the market — and the strategic science behind making them work for consumers with complex conditions.

More managed care, more value-based contracting, and more focus on integration and care coordination – all of these factors combined means that the traditional roles of health plans and provider organizations are changing. Health plans are shifting from carve-out by specialty, to carve-out by consumer type; the role of care coordination and population management is moving from health plans to provider organizations; and there is a blurring of the lines between health plans and provider organizations – through acquisitions or gain-sharing agreements.

In this changing market, the advantage will go to the organization that can deploy the right combination of innovations in a customized and marketable new solution. But that creation of the “new solution” requires strategy, operational rigor to implement the strategy, and capital to invest – which is where collaboration comes into play. To respond to the payer demand for better coordinated care, organizations need to integrate both innovation and collaboration into their organizational strategy.

For the past seven years, The OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute has helped executives to develop and refine their value proposition, re-frame market challenges into opportunities, and build innovation-competent organizations.

Competitive advantage in a performance-based market depends on the ability of organizations to innovate and take successful innovation to scale. This year, this institute is focused on cutting edge innovations  and featuring executive faculty who have made those innovations an asset in developing next generation business models and sustainable strategies.
