We’re headed to HERO Forum September 10-12 and hope to see you there! After looking over the agenda, I wanted to share five sessions we’re particularly excited to hear and learn from:

01: Measuring Program Impact for a Multi-Vendor Health Management Strategy

When an organization has several vendors making waves in different areas of the population, proving overall value can be a challenge. I’m interested in learning from CoreCivic’s metric dashboard and their results.

02: Measuring the Economic Impact of Health for Employer-Community Collaboratives

Environmental change is most effective when business and community work together, but making the business case for collaboration is often the first step. The Nashville model has the potential to inform great cross-sector progress in other cities.

03: What cognitive drivers best predict behavior change success? Putting new research into practice.

We know that individual behavior change requires getting to the root cause for that person – but how do we translate that to population health? How are thought patterns different across generations in our workforce, and how has technology changed our cognitive drivers? I’m hoping to learn some answers from this session.

04: O’Neal Industries, Inc. Mastering Measures that Matter

Our neighbors from Birmingham, AL are a model example of building a culture of health and meeting people where they are. I can’t wait to learn more about how they’ve measured consistently strong results across a dispersed and diverse workforce.

05: Insights from 10 years of Health and Well-Being Trends: Collaboration as the Way Forward

Having seen some wellness programs succeed and others fail, I believe collaboration is key to sustained success. But collaboration doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process. I’m especially looking forward to learning more about how to shift the value proposition of health and well-being and the roles technology can play to produce productive partnerships.


Will you be attending HERO health this year? If so, I’d love to connect and hear what you’re most excited about in this year’s lineup! In case you haven’t heard, we’ll also be presenting results and lessons learned from our work with the University of Maryland Medical System’s employee population. Stay tuned for more information closer to the conference!
