Healthesystems at NWCDC 2018

NWCDC 2018 – the largest annual conference in the workers’ comp industry– is almost here, and Healthesystems’ VP of Clinical Services, Silvia Sacalis, BS, PharmD, will be co-presenting the educational session Defining, Delivering and Measuring Value-Based Care Within Workers’ Comp.

As the discussion to replace the inefficient fee-for-service healthcare model with a value-based care model that emphasizes patient outcomes grows, this session will deliver practical strategies for greater patient engagement and employee health promotion, as well as practices that improve outcomes and increase cost savings. Dr. Sacalis will be co-presenting with Adam Seidner, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer at The Hartford.

The presentation will be held at 10:45 AM and again at 4:15 PM on Thursday, December 6th at NWCDC 2018 in Las Vegas. Not attending the conference? A preview of content that will be explored during the presentation can be viewed at Risk & Insurance, where Dr. Sacalis and our EVP and General Manager of PBM, Matt Hewitt, discuss value-based care with editor Roberto Ceniceros.
