On August 7th, Colorado's payers, providers and innovators gathered for Prime Health's Employer Health Innovation Summit. In partnership with Bach Health, Prime Health welcomed Firdaus Bhathena, Chief Digital Officer at Aetna, as the keynote speaker. Firdaus shared his insights on how companies such as Aetna are evolving to meet the changing needs of healthcare consumers. Following are some highlights from the event.
Insurance giant Aetna has evolved from its property, casualty and life insurance roots to focus squarely on making healthcare simpler, easier and more convenient for its members.

Prime Health Annunces New Interim CEO
Colorado is the nation’s top health innovation ecosystem. I’ve made this claim on several occasions now, from the 2016 Prime Health Challenge, to our recent joint meet-up with TechrIoT.
During the 2016 Prime Health Challenge, I announced that Colorado was the top health innovation ecosystem in the nation. A number of factors influenced this announcement, including Colorado’s ranking as the country’s fastest growing economy, top labor supply, and best place to live.
On October 7th, I had the honor to participate in a workshop in Phoenix, Arizona as part of the Society of General Internal Medicine Mountain West Regional Meeting. General Internists from Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Wyoming participated in our workshop titled “There’s an App for That! Emerging Opportunities for Digital Health Technology in General Internal Medicine.”
More than 100 organizations joined forces with us this year to make the 2016 Prime Health Innovation Summit the largest gathering of its kind in Colorado’s history — and we couldn’t be more grateful.
