High Risk Populations represent the highest cost segment of health care and plans and providers are equally challenged to deploy innovations to treat these populations. Effectively managing this population is imperative for better outcomes and the successful practice of value based healthcare.

SSN's 2nd Annual High Risk Populations event scheduled for March 14-15, 2017, in Orlando, Florida, has been designed to showcase comprehensive best practices for effectively managing High Risk Populations, Care Transitions and Palliative Care. This is one of the ONLY conferences that talks about exactly how to implement a program that weaves high risk models, transitions models, and palliative care together. With a focus on business planning and expectations, this unique event shows you how to improve the quality of care for these special populations while decreasing costs.
