The World Affairs Council of Austin, in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business, is proud to present the Texas Enterprise Speaker Series.
Join us on 20 April for a presentation by Elizabeth Teisberg, Ph.D.Executive Director, Value Institute for Health and Care at Dell Medical School, McCombs School of Business.
Does health care spending seem uncontrollable and ineffective? Are you and your employees adrift in an ever-shifting landscape of legislation, mergers, rising costs, and ineffective care? Does your organization lose productivity and profit due to poor employee health and high spending on health benefits?
As we all know, there are no quick fixes, but the trends won’t change unless employers take a new stance. What if health benefits promoted health and catalyzed change in health care delivery?
Join us to discuss what high-value health care means and how employers can catalyze change that improves health outcomes and expands meaningful, effective choices for your employees.
• How employers can be catalysts in health care transformation
• How to improve employee health while reducing cost
• How to find and understand hidden costs in health care
• How to create and sustain value
