Special topic: An Optum Forum 2019 preview

More than 1,500 clients, partners, industry analysts and health care leaders will attend Optum Forum 2019 in Las Vegas next week. The annual health care event will feature thought-provoking content delivered by industry-leading speakers, interactive experiences, and extensive opportunities for our guests to connect and share.

Moving health FORWARD
The Optum Forum theme – FORWARD – encourages participants to collaborate, push boundaries and advance innovation to create a better health care future in important areas such as data analytics, advancing patient care, enhancing population health and reducing the total cost of care. It’s an event environment designed to help foster new ideas, connections and collaboration.


Rich content, deep learning
Attendees from across the health system will customize their agenda from more than 120 breakout sessions across seven specialized tracks. With content ranging from thought leadership, breakthrough ideas and innovative solutions to deep solution functionality, product roadmaps and opportunities to provide direct feedback to solution teams, there’s something for leaders at every level. Sessions will discuss industry trends including real-world, collaborative examples of tackling the biggest challenges in health care, educating on leading-edge solutions, and sharpening skills that will propel you and your organization forward.

FORWARD-thinking keynotes
Optum Forum kicks off with Optum leaders sharing strategies and solutions that help our partners deliver better experiences and outcomes while lowering costs, and closes with an inspirational talk by Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts. In between, outspoken maverick Zeke Emanuel, M.D. will share his perspectives on health care policy, trends and transformation.

FORWARD Central Experience
Located at the epicenter of the conference is the FORWARD Central Experience, a dynamic, interactive space for learning, networking and connecting via immersive experiences that address some of the most pressing topics in health care through data, cutting-edge technology, and storytelling.

Paying it FORWARD
While in the FORWARD Central Experience, attendees can ride Rally® bikes to raise money for Three Square, a food bank fighting hunger in Southern Nevada.
