In Prudential’s Battle for Health, Culture Is Winning | HC4
K. Andrew Crighton, M.D., Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Prudential Financial
The verdict is in. Both businesses and employees benefit when health is a priority item on a corporation’s
agenda. That’s the reality today at Prudential, which has achieved positive and sustained results in both
employee and organizational health. Dr. K. Andrew Crighton will explain how Prudential achieved culture
change that dramatically improved its workforce’s health profile — and how it was able to do so by
focusing its efforts on lower health risks and higher performance versus lower medical costs and financial
incentives. You’ll leave with ideas you can implement, regardless of your organization size or budget.

What’s Really Driving Employer Medical Costs? | HC5
Ronald S. Leopold, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Lockton Benefits Group, Lockton Companies
Thursday, April 20 | 1: 30 - 2: 30 p.m.
Most employers focus on five key chronic conditions in their efforts to manage medical costs. Addressing
gaps in care for diabetes, asthma, coronary artery disease, hypertension and chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease have often been the cornerstone of cost-containment strategies. Although employers
have made some progress, overall cost reduction hasn’t been as forthcoming as many had hoped.
Increasingly, high-cost-claims analytics are revealing other cost drivers besides those five that need to be
addressed. Dr. Leopold will explain what those cost drivers are and how forward-thinking employers are
starting to tap into preemptive and care-management strategies that offer more direct cost savings for
employees who have those conditions.
Understand and quantify what medical conditions and treatments are driving employer costs
Identify specific strategies that address those cost drivers

Friday, April 21 | 9: 15 - 10: 15 a.m.
A win-win in health benefits is rare. But through the innovative use of an employer-sponsored clinic, the
City of Kirkland has been able to achieve just that by providing 450 employees plus their dependents with
unlimited access to primary and preventative care at no cost without the 300 - 600% margins charged by
the traditional medical systems. Hear why employees are raving about the city’s budget-stable Consumer
Directed Medical Home (CDMH) effort, which simultaneously upgraded its health plan and decreased
employee out-of-pocket costs by 20%. You’ll learn how the city was able to bring its healthcare budget
cost down 5.5% (including clinic operating costs), after experiencing average increases of 10.8% over
the five previous years.
