Name of Webinar: Outcomes Measurement for Dummies.....And Smarties
Date of Webinar: October 5, 2012
Time of Webinar: 11:30 a.m. EDT
Have you ever wondered whether those ROIs that vendors and consultants show you for disease management and wellness are even remotely accurate? Well, you can wonder no longer. IHPM, together with the Disease Management Purchasing Consortium, is presenting the webinar “Outcomes Measurement for Dummies…and Smarties” featuring Al Lewis, author of the newly released (and critically acclaimed) Why Nobody Believes the Numbers: Distinguishing Fact from Fiction in Population Heath Management .
This webinar will demonstrate how to:
• calculate ROI using what Al calls “ingredients you already have in your kitchen,” as opposed to relying on expensive and oftentimes untrained consultants
• "plausibility-check” your vendor’s results to see if they are even mathematically possible, as it turns out that many are simply impossible
• determine in five minutes whether your vendor or carrier is using valid metrics to measure savings
• write your own contractual metrics that tie wellness and disease management together, without massive, expensive and time-consuming RFPs
Al will illustrate these points with sometimes hilarious case studies of “vendors and consultants gone wild” from his new book, so that your staff will be engaged and entertained even as they are enjoying an unparalleled learning experience.
You may also receive, at your option, an autographed copy of Why Nobody Believes the Numbers, the book that Employee Benefit News called “a comedy of mathematic proportions” and that industry leaders have enthusiastically endorsed, for an extra $45, delivered shortly after your registration.
Further, all attendees will receive the Wellness Savings Calculator, the only tool of its kinde to tie wellness to actual medical events, so that you can easily estimate your own ROI and “plausibility check” it against changes in actual wellness-related medical events in your own population. This Wellness Savings Calculator is guaranteed to be the most valid tool available. If you believe you have a more valid tool, you may request a refund for the entire webinar.
