The Future of Benefits

What will the benefits plan of tomorrow look like? Our speakers will gaze into their crystal balls and share their thoughts on the future of benefit plans and managing the soaring cost of drugs.

Jonathan Tafler, from Shoppers Drug Mart, will discuss health coaching and chronic disease at this session. The presentation will examine how health coaching – including the Shoppers Drug Mart ‘Diabetes Coaching Program’ - can be used as an effective intervention to improve clinical health outcomes, quality of life, and healthcare utilization and adherence for employees with chronic conditions. He will review the current context of health coaching for chronic disease in the workplace and discuss evidence and opportunities.

Richard Heinzl MD, from WorldCare International Inc., will examine better management of disability claims. He will introduce disability-focused medical second opinions, a new opportunity for disability claims management which can contain costs, improve patient care, and reduce the duration of claims.

Laura Pratt, from Great-West Life, will discuss the need to go beyond the traditional approach to help people improve their financial, physical, and mental well-being with strategic benefits delivery that supports members throughout their lives.
