The Detroit Regional Chamber’s HealthForward initiative hosted its third and final educational event for 2016. HealthForward’s Employer-Provider Collaborations Luncheon, held on Wednesday, Nov. 9 in partnership with the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), focused on bridging the gaps between purchasers and providers of health care and find common goals, metrics, and processes. Attendees included representatives from large self-funded purchasers, hospital and provider executives, and other key health care stakeholders.

Ray Fabius, co-founder and president of HealthNEXT, delivered a keynote address that provided insight into what other parts of the country are doing to achieve population health for patients. He also outlined the need to focus efforts on preventing and managing chronic disease, as well as stakeholders working together to encourage healthy behaviors.

In the following session, a panel of hospital and physician group executives provided insight into what their organization is doing to drive fee-for-value health services, including greater coordination of care, more efficient processes and new payment models. The final panel represented other stakeholders in health including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Mercer. This group discussed how their organizations are assisting the transitions and drive to fee-for-value as well as greater population health outcomes.

This intimate luncheon provided a strong kickoff to the Chamber’s 2017 goal of convening various health stakeholders to enhance the health of the workforce in metro Detroit and make the region more competitive.
