Healthcare insurance companies sit at the epicenter of a fundamental transformation in the U.S. healthcare market, a change driven mainly by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

To navigate this change (increasing competition, globalization, changes in technology, etc.), payers must rethink their companies' visions and missions, improve organizational cultures, and increase competence by creating new product lines. Many lean on mergers and acquisitions to achieve this, but this strategy does not guarantee success. A healthcare payers' ability to realize acquisition synergies depends upon creating innovative strategies to meet old and new challenges alike.

In this session, attendees will hear how Humana has leveraged innovation to do just that.

• Understand the role of M&A in supporting company's growth and transformation.
• Understand how innovation can help create value during M&A integration.
• Develop strategies to accelerate innovation during M&A integration.
