The Paul Torrens Health Forum: “Employer-Provider Partnerships: Another Piece of the Healthcare Puzzle”

Forward-thinking companies have found the missing piece of the healthcare puzzle: Direct-to-Employer (DTE) partnerships. An increasing number of employers are looking straight to health systems to address skyrocketing costs, lack of aggregate health data on their employee population, and unsatisfactory patient experiences. In a first-of-its-kind partnership in California, Boeing contracted with MemorialCare to create a customized health solution for its 37,000 employees and their dependents in Southern California. Now, after two years in operation, the puzzle is complete.

Join us to learn about this innovative DTE partnership, the challenges facing health systems that enter into direct contracts with employers and how these arrangements may very well transform health care.
