Speaker Questionnaire
What is the biggest thing you learned in 2020?

The amazing amount of work you can get done when you aren't traveling all the time.

What do you feel are the two most important benefits or areas that need to be a top priority in 2021?

Payment methods for providers and aligning member's incentives with the incentives of the plan overall.

Can you share a story on an area of your healthcare program or employee benefits where you were able to create significant savings or stop costs from rising?

Maternity bundles, biosimilars and waste-free formulary.

If you could automatically receive a 10-20% reduction in costs in three areas/programs, what would your dream list be?

Hospital care, specialty care, drug spend.

What is the most innovative program you will focus on in 2021 and/or 2022?

Payment reform.

How are you re-imagining corporate culture & well-being?

What virtual care solutions did you roll out during the pandemic? How valuable were they and why?

If you look at our 3 Moonshots - Costs, Culture, and Care; In one sentence, tell us what would be something positive for us to take from 2020 and bring into this new year?

Follow the dollar - when the delivery system needed to shift to virtual care it did so in under 3 weeks - don't tell me something is "too disruptive," just change the way you pay for it and watch the system adjust almost instantaneously.
