"Health Plan Performance Metrics Demystified" Webinar

Held on:  June 23, 2020       PowerPoint of the webinar is available to Members and webinar participants. 

Employers often get data reports from their health plans that are not easily understood in terms of how these data can be used to manage or improve employee population and sub-population health. This webinar will demystify some of those key metrics-- like "Admits per K, PMPM, Member months"--and data, and show employers how they, themselves, can use their own data to understand employees’ population performance drivers (member risk stratification, identifying segments for greater impact) in the same way.

Presenters:   Angelica Bruhnke and Stefany Goradia from Versatile MED Analytics

Opioids: What Employers Need to Know

SeminarDate: Thursday, September 26

Time: 8:00AM MT

View the event flyer for more information

Though prescription medications are essential in employees’ health care benefits, opioids are potent, highly-addictive drugs that greatly increase workplace risks or injuries, even if taken as prescribed. NM employers know opioid painkillers may greatly increase worker disability, lower productivity, and raise the cost of healthcare.
This forum provided employers from business, nonprofit and public entities with up-to-date information on key opioid-related workplace issues.

New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Value members can attend free of charge with an RSVP.
Non-members can attend for $25. More information regarding payment for non-members will be released soon.
SHRM credits will be offered.
