The 2017 AHIP Institute & Exhibition in Austin, TX was a lively event for the Healthcare Executive Group and those of our sponsor partners attending, exhibiting and/or presenting at the event.

HCEG's booth had a lot of traffic and its location directly across from the GuideWell Insights Lounge brought many healthcare leaders and executives to our booth. To be sure, the HCEG-branded fidget spinner handouts were a popular piece of conference swag!
AHIP Sessions & Presentation Materials
Several Healthcare Executive Group sponsor partners presented at the 2017 AHIP Institute & Exhibition.
Change Healthcare presented at two sessions:
   "Why Financial Engagement is the Linchpin for Consumer Engagement"

   "Reinventing Utilization Management: Faster, Smarter, and Automated"
Bill Fox of MarkLogic moderated a panel discussion titled " Operationalize Before You Analyze: Innovation and Growth Powered by Data."  A recap of this panel discussion moderated by our sponsor MarkLogic will be posted on the  HCEG blog   later this week
After-Hours Event a HUGE Success!
The after-hours event at the Moonshine Grill on the evening of Wednesday, June 7th was attended by over 150 AHIP Institute attendees. 

Given that a total of 60 people were expected, it's safe to say the gathering of healthcare executives, leaders and doers was a rousing success!

Thanks to our sponsor partner Softheon for hosting this event for HCEG members and AHIP Institute attendees!
Many of the concurrent sessions at the 2017 AHIP Institute & Exhibition were very interesting and quite informative - expounding on topics among the HCEG Top 10. You can find a number of these presentations  here .

On June 9th, the popular, weekly Health Information Technology Social Media (#HITsm) tweetchat was co-hosted by the Healthcare Executive Group, GuideWell and GuideWell Connect from the 2017 AHIP Institute & Exhibition in Austin, TX.

The theme of the chat was
'Health System & Health Plan Innovation, Change & Growth During Uncertain Times' and over 70 participants tweeted over 650 times to share their insight, ideas and opinions on the following six topics:

T1: What specific 'areas of opportunity' must health plans/systems address to improve health outcomes, lower costs & improve equity?

T2: What must health systems & health plans focus on over next 8 to 18 months regardless of health reform outcome?

T3: Who's most likely to disrupt healthcare: insiders or outsiders? And what barriers do each face - right now or in near future?

T4: What technologies will do the most to move healthcare supply-side toward improving outcomes, lowering costs & enhancing equity?

T5: Incentives drive innovation. How can they be aligned to meaningfully support innovation that improves outcomes & lowers costs?

Bonus: What are examples of innovative healthcare programs, processes, people and organizations - U.S.-based or elsewhere?

A series of blog posts recapping  topics discussed in the #HITsm chat are posted on the HCEG blog here and here. Additional posts summarizing what was discussed on the remaining topics will be posted over the next week.
