NOVO Health conference spotlights disruptive strategies to improve healthcare delivery and reduce costs

Appleton, WI – NOVO Health, the Appleton-based organization representing independent healthcare groups, announced Lambeau Field as the venue for their 2018 Employer Conference on October 4. The event, now in its 11th year, invites forward-thinking CEO’s, HR professionals, Workers’ Compensation professionals, and company decision-makers to explore innovative designs in healthcare delivery that reduce employer costs while providing a superior patient experience for employees.

This year’s keynote speaker is Daniel Ruettiger, better known by his nickname, Rudy. Mr. Ruettiger’s early life and football career at Notre Dame University were the inspirations for the 1993 film Rudy, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year with a nationwide theatrical re-release.

In addition to the keynote, this year’s all day event includes an interactive panel discussion with healthcare experts as well as instructive breakout sessions targeted to specific audiences. (See Agenda below)

“We’ve assembled an amazing group of experts who epitomize the overriding theme of the event, which is the power of teamwork,” said event organizer Patti Schaetz.

Who should attend the conference?

Any representative from a company or organization looking for innovative ways to control healthcare costs should attend.

What can I expect to gain by attending the conference? We have invited a multitude of experts involved in healthcare delivery to present on a wide range of important topics that affect business owners across the board. Healthcare cost savings – often huge – are available for employers who look, and we’ve brought in speakers from the front lines committed to upending the status quo. Afternoon breakout sessions are split into an employer track and a Work Comp track, and the event also qualifies for CEUs, HR credits, and nursing credits.

What is the conference experience like? Well, it’s at Lambeau Field, which is pretty awesome to start with. We have the entire 4th floor at our disposal for the all day event, which includes the keynote speaker, the interactive panel discussion, lunch, breaks that allow the participants to visit vendors, and breakout sessions with providers for a deeper dive into specific topics. There are prizes too, and this year we have a sponsored social hour following the conference.

What else can you tell me about the event? Our event generally brings together 250-350 people from the business world. There is a $50 event fee, which gets you all the things discussed previously as well as the opportunity to network with an extraordinary group of individuals. It’s a great opportunity to learn, but it’s also a lot of fun, with giveaways and surprises throughout the day.
