Population Health Management Summit

​AHCA/NCAL’s Population Health Summit (PHM) is the only gathering of its kind specifically focused on the long term care and post-acute care community. With CMS’s ongoing focus on shifting from fee-for-service (FFS) to accountable care arrangements, prioritizing value-based care is increasingly essential for the long term care industry. The PHM Summit serves as a hub for innovation and thought leadership, featuring a diversity of sessions tailored to both newcomers to PHM and seasoned providers accustomed to managing risk.

Networking is a key aspect of this interactive event: attendees will have ample opportunity to make connections with and learn from other providers as well as engage with industry experts who will discuss various population health models including ACOs, I-SNPs, assisted living and value-based care, provider-owned networks, and emerging models. Population health management is here to stay: isn’t it time you learned more about how it can benefit your facility? Make plans to join us for two jampacked days at the PHM Summit in May.

Utley, the co-author of the book Ideaflow (2022), and co-host of the popular Paint & Pipette Podcast, continues to work on invention, discovery, and entrepreneurship and demystifies the counter-intuitive techniques that drive productive creativity.

Utley's book Ideaflow: The Only Business Metric That Matters unpacks why and how innovation is not an event, a workshop, a sprint, or a hackathon; it’s a result of mastering Ideaflow, a practice that elevates everything else you do.

Keynote Presentation:  More Chat, Less Bot: How Humans Unleash the True Power of AI in Innovation
In this groundbreaking session, longtime school adjunct professor Utley (a Thinkers50 Top Ten Innovation Leader for 2023) challenges the conventional AI-as-oracle mindset and encourages professionals to embrace AI as a collaborative thought partner.

Drawing on groundbreaking research recently featured by Harvard Business Review, Utley demonstrates why AI-assisted teams often underperform, and how shifting to a conversational approach can unlock AI's full potential for innovation. Leveraging interactive exercises with generative AI, participants will gain personal realizations, and build confidence to spearhead meaningful organizational change.

This unique, personal journey pushes beyond high-level theories, providing participants with the tangible tools and resources to become an adept AI conversationalist. Participants will be equipped with both strategic frameworks and the practical know-how and credibility to be convincing change-makers in their organizations.

Transform your understanding of AI from a mere tool to a catalyst for behavioral and cultural transformation in this deeply insightful and empowering session.
