The Seventh Annual Medicaid Innovations Forum, January 27-29, 2016, Orlando, promises to offer a unique combination of forward-thinking perspectives including first-hand case studies and examples of true innovation from both Medicaid managed care plans and state government agencies. This event, which gathers hundreds of representatives from states, health plans, and solution providers in one room year after year, goes beyond policy to explore the specific strategies these organizations are leveraging to improve quality of care, reduce costs, and position themselves for success in serving the rapidly expanding Medicaid population. Rich with panel discussions and case studies the program also features industry veterans and experts who will showcase solutions and opportunities for transformation critical to Medicaid professionals today.
In the past seven years, SSN's Medicaid Innovations Forum has convened 1600+ key decision makers who have been unanimous in their praise for the valuable insights and actionable solutions that have enabled them to gain a competitive advantage in delivering Medicaid excellence.
Our LinkedIn community, Medicaid Innovations, has over 4500 members and is a fantastic networking tool. Our goal is to create a comprehensive community beyond our live event so that those in the industry can stay connected year round.
