The CBGH 11th Annual Colorado Culture of Health & Wellbeing Conference Call for Breakout Session Topics & Speakers is now open.  Please find attached, the Call submission form.  Proposals are due to CBGH NLT Friday, December 1, 2017.

The annual conference represents a collaboration of community partners and employers whose goal is to improve employee health and the value of the health benefit spend of all Coloradans.  

The 2018 conference will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.  CBGH will hold 15-20 one hour breakout sessions throughout the day.  

This year's submission categories are:

Economics of Wellness (EW): Speakers on the Economics of Wellness should tangibly demonstrate how total health & wellbeing programs (i.e., physical, behavioral, financial and family health) have created a culture of health at the worksite through evidence-based policies and programs that lead to cost reductions and improved health outcomes.  Submissions on EW should be evidenced-based.

Health Literacy (HL): Discuss how an improvement in health literacy has directly impacted health outcomes. (Low health literacy contributes to poorer health outcomes and inefficient use of health care services that cost the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Nearly 9 out of 10 adults have trouble using health information to make informed decisions about their health!

Employee Engagement (EE):  Growing evidence suggests that engaged employees are a core component of the changing health care system, experience better outcomes, and have overall lower costs. Submissions should highlight successful strategies that increase employee engagement in managing their overall health and wellbeing.

Health Policy & Legal Compliance (HP):  Discuss how recent and upcoming legal and policy decisions may affect your benefit design and health and wellbeing programs.

Value-based Benefit Design (VBBD): Value-based benefit design promotes employees’ use of high-value care options (such as  advanced primary care) by changing the cost-sharing individuals must pay for different care options. Under a VBBD approach, treatments that provide high clinical value have reduced or no cost-sharing (out-of-pocket costs like copays) and, in some cases, treatments of low clinical value may have increased cost sharing.  Submissions on VBBD should highlight a program or case study that focuses on reducing cost-sharing for high value care.
