“Transforming health, redesigning care” speaker is Duke University Health System’s Associate Chief Medical Officer
PRLog - Sep. 2, 2014 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- Devdutta Sangvai, M.D., MBA, associate chief medical officer of Duke University Health System and president of the North Carolina Medical Society, will co-deliver the 2014 Innovate Work Summit keynote on “Winning With New Models of Care” alongside Tracy Baker, mid south president, Aetna. The event takes place Friday, Sep. 12, 2014 at the Institute of Emerging Issues, located on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, and includes leaders and professionals representing private industry, government, healthcare and higher education.
As the associate chief medical officer of Duke University Health Systems, executive director of Duke Connected Care, medical director of DukeWELL and president of the North Carolina Medical Society, Dr. Sangvai and the Duke team are overseeing a rapid transformation to integrative models designed to improve the health and well-being of health consumers, that strives to transform medicine and health by identifying and implementing leading methods for providing world-class patient-centered integrative care.
The explosion of new data resources, collaborative partnerships, emerging technologies, and inspiring research advances have marked a turning point in history for driving innovation and transforming health in unprecedented ways that will improve access, delivery and outcomes for high-quality, cost-effective care.
As a result, Dr. Sangvai is actively redesigning DukeWELL’s care models that include health innovation, integrative health practices, clinical quality, and new models of payments - all designed to enhance the patient experience and improve health outcomes in North Carolina, and ultimately across the globe. Dr. Sangvai will join Tracy Baker in addressing leaders and employers with discussion of how a network movement created from an outdated system is disrupting the future of well-being and transforming health. Questions to be asked include “What steps are leaders taking together to transform health value?” and “How will this empower health consumers and patients, strengthen health outcomes in workplaces, industry and communities now and in the future?”
Jason DeBryn, staff writer for the Triangle Business Journal, will moderate a lively Q&A following Dr. Sangvai’s presentation to discuss transforming health care to maximize the quality of care a consumer receives while optimizing utilization, as well as methods for reducing the cost of care for individuals and communities.
From Employee Participants to Engaged Owners of Health
A highly-engaging breakout session will follow during the Well-Being Track at the Summit and will explore the emerging health care consumer in a rapidly changing global world of work, discuss the latest incentive trends, and offer an inside view as to how leading organizations are redefining a new health journey that moves beyond traditional wellness programs to health innovation management - a powerful, personalized employee care experience that improves access to quality care, empowers employee health management and ownership, drives better-informed decisions, healthier behaviors and outcomes, reduces the hassle, and provides more cost-effective workforce care. Bottom line – to improve health.
