TriZetto’s Upcoming 2013 Healthcare Conference Brings Together Payers and Providers to Drive Greater Collaboration Across Industry

TriZetto Corporation announced today that its upcoming 2013 TriZetto Healthcare Conference will bring together for the first time health plans, third-party health insurance administrators (TPAs), health systems and physician practices to collaborate on solutions and strategies that can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the business of healthcare. Scheduled for May 19-22 in Palm Springs, Calif., TriZetto’s program will expose industry executives to new and innovative ideas, workshops and solutions designed to help simplify healthcare for everyone.

“We’ve developed the 2013 TriZetto Healthcare Conference to be invaluable to payer and provider participants alike”

“The roles of healthcare organizations are changing as health plans, benefit administrators, health systems and physicians increasingly work together to deliver better health to consumers,” said Trace Devanny, chairman and CEO of TriZetto. “To support greater collaboration, we’ve combined our annual Payer Conference and annual Benefits Administration Conference and invited our hospital, health system and physician practice clients to join us. By enabling greater collaboration, TriZetto helps drive administrative efficiency and improved cost and quality of care to give clients a competitive advantage in a volatile healthcare market.”

TriZetto’s large client base of health plans, TPAs and providers brings together more than 360 health plans and benefit administrators, as well as over 205,000 physicians and health systems. Touching more than half the nation’s insured population, TriZetto is uniquely positioned to enable a healthcare community that shares information more efficiently to improve the way health is managed and care is delivered.

“We’ve developed the 2013 TriZetto Healthcare Conference to be invaluable to payer and provider participants alike,” said Dan Spirek, TriZetto’s executive vice president and chief strategy and marketing officer. “Interactive sessions will provide an unprecedented opportunity for executives from every corner of the healthcare industry to share experiences, strategies and best practices. Thought-provoking keynote speakers and industry experts will bring new insights on payer-provider collaboration, healthcare reform and other challenges facing the industry today.”

A content-rich program of industry thought leaders, workshops and interactive forums will be complemented by networking events and a solution center that demonstrates products and services that can help conference attendees streamline their operations and pursue new strategies for business growth and expansion. The 2013 TriZetto Healthcare Conference will provide significant opportunities to expand industry knowledge and establish valuable business connections.

Two keynote speakers will headline the Executive Program portion of the event. Nancy-Ann DeParle, guest scholar in economic studies at the Brookings Institution and lecturer at Harvard Law School, is one of the nation’s leading experts on healthcare and regulatory issues. While counselor to President Obama and director of the White House Office of Health Reform, DeParle played a leading role in crafting the Affordable Care Act, an historic piece of legislation.
