INSURE TECH LTC; SHAPING THE FUTURE OF AGING
May 29-31 in Washington DC.  EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS APRIL 30TH
https://www.cushycms.com/temporary_uploads/248458/InsurTech LTC DRAFT Agenda 4-9-19.pdf


The delivery of quality long term care (LTC) services is already challenged, and will become more so, as the number of people needing care continues to dramatically outpace the supply of services and caregivers to meet these needs.  With average lifetime costs of care for those who need it in excess of $250,000, the burden is high - whether those costs are paid privately by a third party insurer, by an already overburdened public payment system, or more typically borne directly by individuals and their families  Solutions are desperately needed that can:
  • mitigate, reduce or prevent the need for care;
  • reduce the costs of care;
  • better support and enable family caregivers;
  • and help expand or transform how care is provided.
Fortunately, promising technology solutions and innovative approaches to managing care delivery are emerging that hold great potential to address this crisis. 
The Society of Actuaries (SOA and Maddock Douglas are pleased to announce the creation of a new conference - InsureTech LTC  - focused exclusively on cutting-edge developments in technology solutions to re-shape the future of LTC service delivery, the risk of needing care, the costs of care, and how care needs are met. 

Attendees will learn about innovative LTC services and products developed by entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies focused on care prevention, detection, risk mitigation, caregiver support and aging in place.  Technology innovators will have an opportunity to meet with LTC providers and both public and private sector payers to better understand their needs for technology solutions. 
InsureTech LTC  aims to help accelerate the trend in technology-solutions for long term services and supports so that payers, providers and innovators can work together to build solutions that are more accessible, appropriate and affordable.
