Listen in as Accresa CEO William Short discusses "The Future of Healthcare" alongside Marie Aloisi, SVP, US Business Development & Healthcare at Mastercard at Mastercard's 2018 SMART Conference.
While our primary mission here at Accresa is to make quality care more accessible for employees, we believe it shouldn’t come at the price of additional administrative burden on employers and plan administrators. We kept that in mind while developing some exciting new platform enhancements for Open Enrollment season.
Innovation in healthcare is no small topic, nor an easy conversation to cover – but this year’s HLTH event, “The Future of Healthcare,” did a pretty good job touching on some of the issues and interest areas most relevant to where we believe healthcare is focused today. The Accresa team attended HLTH as a sponsor and exhibitor, and was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet and engage with a number of diverse thought leaders and industry influencers – reinforcing (from our perspective, at least) how many critical stakeholders must be actively involved in the broader effort to drive meaningful change and innovation to healthcare as we know it.

Welcome! I’m pleased to formally re-introduce you to Accresa: our rapidly-growing solution for employers seeking an easier way to design, implement, and manage a direct primary care (DPC) benefit for their employees.
Direct primary care is an innovative healthcare payment model that strives to improve access to quality care by fostering stronger relationships between patients and their primary care physicians, and eliminating the misalignment of incentives created by the traditional fee-for-service construct. The idea is that by cutting out the expense and inefficiency associated with paying for primary care services through an insurance company, physicians will be able to spend more time focused on keeping their patients well, and patients will be able to obtain dedicated access to exceptional care from a doctor they know and trust.
