Collaborate with like-minded leaders about emerging healthcare trends

The Innovation Symposium is an opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders and Mercer experts on innovation in healthcare and emerging trends. You will have the chance to learn and contribute to your personal and professional growth while networking and connecting with peers from other organizations.

Why attend

As an attendee, you will be joined by industry experts who have a unique point of view on how employers and healthcare organizations can collaborate to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes. 

The symposium is designed to offer an intimate experience that fosters engagement and collaboration. Therefore, we ask you to please limit attendance to one contact per organization.


Mercer could not put on this event without the help of our sponsors: Centivo, Coupe Health, and Artemis. 


Pre-event: Monday, March 4

Evening welcome reception

Day 1: Tuesday, March 5 

8:00 am - 5:00 pm | Sessions (Breakfast and lunch provided)

If we were to design benefits from scratch, where would we start? What do employees, employers and industry think is next for employer sponsored healthcare? Mercer shares our point of view on what's on the horizon and what tools will be needed to carve out impactful progress. 

Further details to follow

What does healthcare look like in 2035? What has changed and what won't unless we find ways to accelerate progress? Artemis shares their data based predictions for the future.

Hear Industry experts make their case for the models they think can fix our  approach to healthcare, why they are different and what employers need to do to prepare.

Vote for the topics most important to you when it comes to contemplating change and listen to experts share their perspective.

Employers will work in small groups to stress test the hypotheses shared over the course of Day 1 and think practically about what will and won't work for their organization in the future.
6:30 pm | Mercer hosted on-site dinner

Day 2: Wednesday, March 6

8:00 am - 1:00 pm | Sessions (Breakfast and lunch provided)

Mercer shares our vision for the next frontier. Employers have the chance to provide feedback and shape solutions that fit their needs.

We hear a lot about the potential gains when it comes to AI but not a lot practically about how we can use it today to prepare for the future. Work through problem solving exercises on your biggest cost contributors to construct a potential roadmap to prepare for the problems of 2035.
