While employers provide benefits and wellness programs with the goal of improving employee satisfaction, the complexity of using such benefits often adds to the stress on an employee’s experience. We’ll walk through three examples of how employers can adopt technology to improve the leave experience — including implementing APIs between the disability vendor and an employer’s downstream systems benefit programs to streamline the burden on the employee; technology that supports electronic voice authorizations to expedite the collection of medical documentation; and integrated reporting tools that help employers identify opportunities for wellness programs.


ROUNDTABLE: Staying Abreast of Technology Trends

DATE | TIME: Wednesday, August 3, 2022 | 4:30pm – 5:30pm 


Christy Traupe, Product Manager, FINEOS
Lori Welty, Sr. Compliance Attorney, FINEOS

Technology solutions are constantly evolving, making it easy to fall behind on the latest offerings. This conversation will center on all things technology — whether it’s exploring offerings and onboarding a new solution, understanding how peers are utilizing technology to support their program, or learning about the newest tools and features — it’s all on the table here!


SESSION: Use the Force | How to Harness Market Forces to Meet Future Absence Management Challenges

DATE | TIME: Thursday, August 4, 2022 | 10:45am – 11:45am


Megan Holstein, JD, EVP Claims & Absence, FINEOS
Teri Weber, Spring Consulting Group
Kimberly Mashburn, Brown & Brown Absence Services Group
Kristina Welke, New York Life Insurance Group

Organizations are confronting a more holistic life experience for employees, as caregiving, financial benefits, and flexibility move from employee concerns to workplace benefit expectations. Employers need to understand the impact of more employees embracing gig and contract work, flexible work, and the hybrid workplace. In this session, we’ll share how to use these market forces to meet the future challenges of the dynamic integrated disability, absence, and accommodations reality and how to focus on constant improvement of your day-to-day administration of disability, absence, and accommodations.
