The first guest on this week's program is Tibi Zohar, CEO of DoctorGlobe, the first and only U.S. domestic online hospital-shopping platform utilizing big data and crowd wisdom to exploit price inefficiency and identify quality of inpatient care. Everyone agrees that inpatient care is expensive in America. Transparency has become a common buzzword in every health care-related conversation, especially since the implementation of the ACA. The two common methods to overcome rising non-transparent costs have been either to negotiate prices (carriers) or to invent prices (RBP). But maybe there’s a better, more modern way to solve this puzzle? Catch this interview to find out how DoctorGlobe can help employers overcome non-transparency and identify quality in health care.
The second guest on this week's program is Laurie Brednich, CEO and founder of HR Company Store, the premier website to help HR professionals find, rate and review vendor partners. Laurie began her career in the insurance industry working for Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield, MetLife and Hartford Steam Boiler. She then decided to take her unique skill set and apply it to the HR sector where she had a lengthy career helping employers maximize their benefit plan offerings. She has held employee benefit leadership positions at American Standard, the NBA, Pinnacle Foods Group, GoDaddy and most recently Sprouts Farmers Market. In this interview, Laurie will discuss why it's important for HR professionals to have an objective resource when selecting vendors and why mastering the art of the RFP is an essential skill for almost all HR professionals.
