Understanding the trends that are bringing payers and providers together to improve efficiency, cost savings, and the member experience

Wednesday, October 6
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM (CT)

In today’s increasingly complex dental landscape, payers and providers are looking for a better way. Traditionally, payers and providers have operated with independent and sometimes conflicting goals and objectives, often causing lost opportunities for efficiency, savings, and positive member experiences. The current dental ecosystem is starting to evolve - Payers are trying to find the right providers; dentists want to deliver the best care; and members are looking for affordable, high-quality care. Join NADP and Zelis to understand key market trends and explore strategies you can employ to improve your part of achieving efficiency, savings, and positive experiences for all parties involved.   

Zelis will cover:   

  • Perspectives on the dental market trends that can impact your current business and future planning   
  • Understanding where DSOs fit into the picture 
  • The benefits of electronic payment adoption for providers and payers   
  • Discussion on the future of member payment integration as well as why payment and responsibility transparency, is important
