Soon you’ll be watching television and there will be a reminder across the bottom of the screen about your next doctor’s appointment or a there will message saying it is time for a pill.
That’s some of the innovations health insurance executives spoke about this week during CIANJ’s forum on “What’s Ahead for Health Insurance in New Jersey.”
Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck hosted the event, where Kristen Silberstein, the hospital’s vice president of patient engagement, moderated a dynamic conversation among: Michael Costa, Aetna’s vice president and chief operating officer for the New York/New Jersey region; Ken Kobylowski, senior vice president of provider contracting and network operations at AmeriHealth New Jersey; Paul Marden, Healthplan CEO New Jersey for UnitedHealthcare; and Kathy Orr, vice president at Aon Risk Solutions.
Attendees got a glimpse of the new “Health Hubs” Aetna is developing in CVS stores and the panelists talked about how technology is reshaping healthcare and insurance, especially with the development of new apps and devices that will sync health information to doctors and insurance providers. The program was sponsored by AmeriHealth, UnitedHealthcare and the law firm of Rivkin Radler.
