Webinar To Explore What Health Plans Need To Know About Private Exchanges

The nation's largest provider of private exchanges invites health plans to participate in an interactive webinar on private exchanges and related strategies and opportunities

BROOKFIELD, Wis., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Connecture, Inc., the leading provider of Web-based information systems used to create health insurance marketplaces, today invited health plans to join them in an interactive webinar. "Tomorrow's Consumer - One Marketplace" will look at the opportunities, challenges and strategies available to health insurance providers as employers increasingly look to private exchanges as a mechanism for delivering employees' health benefits.

Connecture, Inc.

"With predictions calling for some 30 million Americans to enroll in health plans through private exchanges by 2017, the question for most health plans is no longer whether to offer a private exchange solution, but how to do so most effectively," said Sarah Rodehorst, senior director of market development at Connecture. "In this webinar, we'll discuss the opportunities associated with private exchanges and the merits of a 'one-marketplace' approach that enables health plans to utilize existing online assets, keep costs in check and provide employers with a platform that empowers their employees to confidently select and enroll in the right plan."

Rodehorst will present the webinar with Christopher Neuharth, director of user experience at Connecture, who will offer insights gained in the company's ongoing research into how consumers buy health insurance online – information Connecture's developers use to make decision-support tools that dramatically simplify the health insurance purchasing process.

Relevant details include:

  • Session: "Tomorrow's Consumer - One Marketplace"
  • Date: Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 1 p.m. EDT
  • Speakers: Christopher Neuharth, director of user experience at Connecture, and Sarah Rodehorst, senior director of market development at Connecture

"There's a lot of hype in the marketplace and misconceptions about the various flavors of private exchanges now available," added Rodehorst. "Our goal in this webinar is to give health plans an unvarnished and frank assessment of the options now available, as well as insights they can use in their efforts to develop and act on an effective private exchange strategy."

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone.
