Morning Refreshments & Networking

Optimizing Care Delivery and Tackling Pain Points for Health Plans and Providers


Speed Networking

Grab yourself a refreshment and get ready for speed networking. This session is designed to connect you with key payer, provider, policy, pharma and innovative, generative AI company stakeholders, so have your answers ready for the following questions and spend time with each group before moving on to a new group of faces:

  • Your name, organization and role
  • A brief intro to your organization 
  • A brief example of how your organization is leveraging generative AI, and the challenges you face.

Remember to exchange those business cards and follow up on those warm connections later in the day!


Presentation: The AI-Powered Revolution in Behavioral Health

Despite its importance to our society’s well being, Behavioral Healthcare has often been left behind as technology has advanced. Generative AI is changing that. In this session, we’ll share real-world examples of how behavioral health organizations are deploying AI today and discuss implications for the future.  

Attendees will:

  • Understand the landscape of AI applications in behavioral health
  • Understand top challenges for behavioral health organizations and health plans that are driving them toward AI-powered solutions 
  • Apply lessons learned to your own organization

Kathleen McAnney, Senior Director of Partnerships, Eleos Health


Case Study: The Future Front Door of Care: How Generative AI Will Impact Primary Care Physicians

Afternoon Refreshments & Networking


Panel with Open Q&A: Leveraging Governance vs. Blind Decision Making – How to Ensure the Ethical Integration of Generative AI in your Health Plan and Clinic

As healthcare continues to navigate the adoption of generative AI technologies, unprecedented, yet crucial, discussion surrounding: liability for model outputs, data privacy and regulation arise. This panel discussion will delve into these topics and explore how we can ensure the ethical integration of generative AI into payer and provider workflows, while prioritizing patient interests.

  • How are your organizations leveraging generative AI right now, and what are your primary focuses? Each panelist shares a perspective.
  • How can we thoughtfully adopt generative AI into healthcare and what would this mean in practice?
  • What are the different types of bias, and how can we ensure that machine learning does not exacerbate health disparities?
  • What is the importance of continuous governance in the use of generative AI in healthcare settings, and how can we better facilitate this?  
  • Who will accept liability and responsibility for the outputs of generative AI models in healthcare, and who is at fault if something is incorrect?
