Event to be held October 3-5 in Austin, Texas
PHOENIX, Ariz. (October 1, 2021) — As Diamond members of the Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA) and industry-leading innovators for the self-insured and captive insurance marketplace, Vālenz® leaders have announced they are attending SIIA’s annual National Educational Conference and Expo again this year.
The 41st annual conference event, which takes place virtually and in person, provides event participants with many opportunities to discover game-changing solutions, including the data-driven Valenz ecosystem.
“We are excited about this year’s conference theme – The Way Forward – because it reflects the need to reimagine the paradigms of self-funded health plans,” said Rob Gelb, Chief Executive Officer at Valenz. “That’s what we do every day within the Valenz ecosystem. We make it possible to achieve measurable, meaningful improvements in cost and quality year over year.”
Several members of the Valenz executive team will be attending this year’s SIIA conference, including Amy Gasbarro, Chief Operating Officer; Nathan Nelson, Senior Vice President, Growth; Jordan Hersh, Vice President, Business Development; Chris Shoffner, Vice President, Business Development; and Brittney Parrish, Senior Client Services Executive.
By integrating data from high-value provider networks, care management, revenue cycle, claim management and more, Valenz provides uniquely transparent and data-driven decision enablement. “Part of the way forward for our industry will be shaped by how we target the 5-15 percent of claims that drive up to 70 percent of health plan spending – that’s the key to driving costs down while driving quality and member experience up,” Gelb said.
The in-person component of the 2021 conference will be held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Austin, Texas. Educational content is being delivered virtually with a combination of live and pre-recorded sessions scheduled throughout the conference. Attendees are encouraged to talk with Valenz at the event for a one-on-one exploration of next-generation data engagement and decision enablement that drives smarter, better, faster healthcare.
Valenz enables self-insured employers to make better decisions that control costs across the life of a claim while empowering their members to lead strong, vigorous and healthy lives. Valenz offers transparency through data to pinpoint members at highest risk, address gaps in network designs, ensure appropriate and accurate charges, and expertly navigate employees to optimal care solutions for substantial cost savings and improved health outcomes.
