MT KISCO, NY – April 22, 2014 – Leverage Health Solutions, (LHS), in partnership with The Managed Care Executive Group (MCEG), a national organization of health plan executives, met April 9-11 in Nashville to participate with healthcare thought leaders to discuss the “Race for Relevance: A 360 Degree Healthcare Transformation,” which was MCEG’s 25th Anniversary Annual Forum Theme. New at this year’s Forum was the Innovation Lab, a special session, facilitated by LHS, focused on emerging solutions and technologies that specifically address the MCEG Top 10 issues facing healthcare.
Prior to the Forum, MCEG and LHS conducted a market-wide search and selected, from a group of 42, the top 5 finalists. The 5 finalists were selected based on responses to an RFI issued by MCEG and evaluated on transformational innovations or technologies and their ability to impact the MCEG Annual Top 10 issues affecting managed care today (http://www.mceg.net/top-10/). Finalists had the opportunity to participate in a half day Innovation Lab and engage with healthplan executives to further discuss and fine tune their offerings. During the Innovation Lab, each of the 5 healthcare technology and servicecompanies presented their solutions, then were peer reviewed, discussed and scored by the MCEG Forum participants.
“LHS supported MCEG’s focus on these key transformational issues. This effort is clearly synergistic with our company’s competency of vetting and representing the services of a select portfolio of service companies. We believe the marketplace needs such venues in order to collectively drive innovation and collaboration,” says Richard Lungen, Managing Member of Leverage Health Solutions.
MCEG welcomed the partnership with LHS and recognized the need for MCEG members and healthplans overall to have opportunities to freely explore new ideas and innovation. “We are committed to delivering the most meaningful information to our healthplan executives at our annual forum through sessions like our innovation lab and also throughout the year via panel discussions, networking events, industry pulse surveys and collaborative partnerships with other healthcare organizations” said Tom Carleton, MCEG Board of Directors member, program chair for 2014 and Director Strategic Development, BCBSNC.
