Enlace Health Continues the Evolution to Sustainable Healthcare at Healthcare Evolution Connect

NASHVILLE, TEN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On 09/14/2022, Health Evolution Connect, an invitation-only event, kicked off with a networking event hosted by Enlace Health, a healthcare transformation company driving the systematic changes required for sustainable healthcare. Attendees included CEOs and C-suite executives from providers, payers, and life science organizations, as well as technology leaders, investors, innovators, and policymakers.

Enlace has joined Health Evolution to launch the inaugural Health Evolution Connect event. For three days, the community of industry leaders challenged each other and worked together on a common mission: to make healthcare more accessible, affordable and effective.

Enlace is at the forefront of healthcare’s transition from fee-based to true value-based care, continuously developing the solutions needed to drive client success in the complex landscape of the total cost of care. Enlace’s deep roots and understanding of the world of payers and providers has led to its rapid expansion. “Change is a challenge for everyone involved, payers, providers and technology partners. However, if players don’t make significant changes, the system will fail. It’s events like Health Evolution Connect that allow for important ideas to be shared in an environment designed to facilitate meaningful dialogue. And it’s important for Enlace to work with these leaders and thought leaders. Being a part of Health Evolution and its Connect event is a natural fit for Enlace,” said Bill Nordmark, CEO of Enlace Health.

Throughout the event, attendees discussed the need for changes focused on cost containment and alignment while ensuring that any changes ensure improved patient quality and experience. As part of the event, Bill Nordmark and Tom Aubel, AVP of Reimbursement at UPMC, had a standing-only deep dive discussion: “Building the bridge to a sustainable healthcare system through values-based care.” All sectors of healthcare were represented and joined Bill and Tom for lively discussions. Whether it was the validity of price transparency for patients or the attrition of members to payers, all discussions returned to two key points – the need to properly define value-based care and the accepted reality that the model of charging for services not working.

“Imagine that you bought a plane ticket but didn’t know the cost of the ticket in advance. You will receive the first bills a few weeks after your trip. You will receive an invoice from the pilot, one for the snacks, one for the fuel and another for the airport usage fee. And with all these bills, you don’t understand what each bill means or which bill you are responsible for. It just wouldn’t work, but that’s the madness of our healthcare system and that’s exactly why we need to fix the system at its core,” Nordmark explained.

“If we don’t make a change now, someone else will, and it may not be how we would like it to be. We must act now. We need to work together to be part of the solution,” said Tom Aubel, UPMC’s AVP of Reimbursement.

Healthcare recognizes that it cannot continue on its current unsustainable path. Fee-for-service and the current technology infrastructure are self-sustaining partners in the ongoing chaos. The status quo approach and additional point solutions only add to the complexity. “In an ecosystem that knows it needs to change, it’s critical for participants to see a clear path to success. That’s why Enlace works with companies that have a ‘meet where you are’ client strategy that ensures successful evolution towards the truly value-based care that everyone aspires to,” concluded Nordmark.
