CTBGH General Membership Meeting

January 31, 2020 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

New Haven Lawn Club
193 Whitney Avenue
New Haven CT 06511

This meeting will include updates on important things happening locally that will impact you and your employees.  We will be spending time learning about the latest initiative from the State Employee Health Plan, and gain a better understanding of effective cancer care.

State of Connecticut Employee Health Plan Initiative
Dr. Tom Woodruff and his team at the Comptroller's office continue to push our healthcare system to improve value.  The state is pursuing paying providers for certain services on a "bundled" basis. The initial bundles will be in place for July 1, 2020.  The implementation of bundles in Connecticut will eventually benefit every employer.  Tom and Francois de Brantes from Remedy Partners will help us understand how this program will work, the benefits of it, and the opportunity for other employers to be involved.

More Effective Cancer Treatment
Dawn Holcombe and Sheryl Riley are co-chairing the Moving to Value Alliance Cancer Center of Excellence Sub-Committee.  Dawn and Sheryl are passionate about using their extensive knowledge to improve the care experience for patients being treated with cancer.  Their presentation will provide CTBGH attendees with insight into employee cancer experiences and how they can be improved.  Specific topics include:

  • Reviewing the Landscape for Cancer Centers of Excellence  
  • Discussion of Oncology Focused Programs  
  • Top Level Results and Observations from the NAMCP Medical Directors 2018 Oncology Profile Study
  • Discuss Goals, Cancer Variables, and What to Look for in Cancer COE Partners
