Change Healthcare Founder, Chief Development Officer To Explore The Science Behind Consumer Engagement At Upcoming NEBGH Conference

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Christopher Parks, founder and chief development officer of Change Healthcare, the market leader in consumer engagement and cost transparency, will speak at the Northeast Business Group on Health's 2013 Annual Health and Wellness Conference in New York City on April 24. Parks will be a part of a panel titled "The State of Transparency in Care Delivery."

"As healthcare costs continue to rise, it's important that plan providers empower their members and employees to become savvy healthcare consumers who make value-based healthcare purchasing decisions," Parks said. "While cost transparency plays an important role in this, sustained consumer engagement – achieved through benefits education, cost transparency and proactive, personalized communications – is the real key. Engaging members and employees over and over again inspires behavior change – and behavior change drives cost savings for everyone.

"At NEBGH, we will explore the science behind Change Healthcare's consumer engagement strategies – strategies that enable our health plan and self-insured employer clients to achieve market-leading sustained engagement rates day in and day out," he added.

About Christopher Parks, Founder and Chief Development Officer Christopher Parks founded Change Healthcare Corporation based on more than 18 years of experience in executive roles in various areas of the healthcare industry, including disease management, technology, healthcare operations management and supply chain consulting. As a multi-channel healthcare expert, he understands the industry and the crippling lack of information available to healthcare consumers. As a result of a deeply personal experience, Parks' mission is to change the healthcare landscape by improving information flow and cost transparency; therefore, empowering consumers to make educated healthcare decisions. Parks earned his bachelor's degree from Middle Tennessee State University.
