We Support The Healthcare Industry! For this event, SSN is proud to offer FREE admission to
employees of health plans, state agencies and hospitals as a thank you for all you do for all of us.

Strategic Solutions Network is pleased to announce our 12th Annual Medicaid Innovations Forum on February 1-4, 2021. This highly acclaimed event is being designed as a virtual event. Our successful virtual event platform has all the great networking and interaction you expect with deep dive workshops, interactive panel discussions, and riveting general sessions, all designed to make your experience as real as if you were there in person. And, there are multiple one-on-one chat rooms designed to help you connect with the people you want to meet!


Our innovative Expo area will also have all the displays and networking you expect from the participating solution providers

Due to the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 on our most vulnerable populations, this event will explore how health plans and state agencies are delivering services to Medicaid members in a way that addresses social determinants of health and meets members where they are. Virtual patient interaction and innovative telehealth services for both physical and behavioral health issues are essential to providing care when and where it is needed most. It is more critical than ever that Medicaid leaders gather and leverage data to develop targeted interventions, design flexible and sustainable care models in response to the pandemic, and engage members in their care to improve outcomes.

The conference will also look at the post-Presidential election Medicaid landscape and what changes the 2021 political environment will have on Medicaid programs.

This highly anticipated annual event offers a unique combination of forward-thinking perspectives, first- hand case studies and examples of true innovation from both Medicaid managed care plans and state government agencies.

If you are interested in joining our all-star faculty, please contact Pamela Masselli at [email protected] For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Aron Barkan at [email protected] Space is extremely limited, so please connect with us today.

Through case study presentations, industry expert sessions, and interactive panel discussions, this groundbreaking program goes beyond policy to explore the specific strategies that leading organizations are leveraging to be nimble and responsive during these uncertain times.
