Population health efforts often focus on the sickest and most expensive patients. But payers and providers may be missing out on opportunities to meet the needs of patients who have yet to be diagnosed with chronic conditions. We’ll dig into how to use technology and analytics to identify these patient populations and develop low-cost strategies to meet their needs.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • Identifying important data points that can provide more insight on cost trends and care hotspots
  • Sharing actionable data to help physicians facilitate change
  • Using data from wearables, remote monitoring and other mobile technologies
  • Identifying strategies to incorporate additional layers of technology to improve outcomes
