2020 PEBA Forum Breakout Sessions will be announced shortly! 

Check out our 2019 PEBA Forum Sessions - Health & Welfare


Health & Welfare Morning Breakout

Session Name: Getting the Most Value From Your Health Benefits Spend.  
Session Time: 10:45am
Session Speaker:

  •  Neil Goldfarb, President and CEO, Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health

Session Description:

35% of healthcare spending is waste.  Self-funded employers have fiduciary responsibility to implement strategies to lower costs and improve health benefits value.  This session will present an overview of employer innovations in health benefits management such as value-based benefit design, payment reform (e.g. bundled payments, risk sharing), Choosing Wisely and other consumer engagement initiatives, enhanced primary care, and models of care coordination.  Case studies of employers who have implemented these strategies also will be shared, and practical next steps for employers seeking to implement these approaches will be discussed.  


Health & Welfare Afternoon Breakout

Session Name: Why Telemedicine Doesn't Work
Session Time: 2:00pm
Session Speaker:

  • Moderator: Bill Lacy, CEO, ACHRM
  •  Speakers: John Lawlor, President & CEO, Swift MD, Don Barbuto, Principle, Centurion Group, LLC  

Session Description:

Leveraging ACHRM's nearly 200 collaborative events across the US over the past seven assisting employers (50 to 35,000 employees) in containing their healthcare costs and better managing health risks, we've identified telemedicine can be an effective solution.  We plan to draw from case studies to offer strategies to more effectively implement this strategy and engage employees.
