Michael J. Connor, Dr.PH., senior vice president of customer analytics for Alere Health, a leading provider of health management solutions, will highlight what employers should know and understand about measurement and reporting to ensure better care, cost savings and participant engagement during the Care Continuum Alliance (CCA) Forum 2013 held October 23-25 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

In his presentation at 3:30 p.m. on October 23, “The Value Cascade: Best Practices for Reporting Program Value, Connor will cover the key measurement domains and important population considerations that are crucial to the success of population health management programs. “The challenge has been how to measure and monitor the effectiveness of these programs so that they can be adjusted to best meet client needs,” says Connor, who leads customer analytics for Alere Health and has more than 30 years of healthcare measurement and reporting experience. “At Alere, we have worked with leading industry organizations to develop a value cascade, or framework, that leads a client in a step-by-step process from initiation of a program to patient engagement and adherence to the realization of performance goals.” Several Alere executives will also participate in thought leadership presentations at the CCA Forum: *Dr. Connor, Rhonda Willingham, RN, BSN, executive vice president at Alere Health, and Jerry Noyce, president and CEO of HERO, will present “Communicating Value: A Strategic Business Imperative” at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 24. *Craig Keyes, MD, CEO of Alere Health, will moderate a panel discussion titled, “If You’ve Seen One ACO…” at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 24. *Dan Davis, R.Ph., CCP, director of product strategy for care gaps, will present the poster “Clinical Gap Closure: Implications of Population Differences on Success” in the poster exhibition area from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Thursday, October 24.
