Record-Breaking Attendance at Evolution1 Partner Conference 2014

Evolution1® – the nation’s largest electronic payment, on-premise and cloud computing healthcare solution built on a vision to simplify the business of healthcare – kicked off Partner Conference 2014 yesterday at the Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. The seventh annual go-to industry event has drawn record attendance again this year, growing 30 percent over last year.

In his keynote address this morning, Jeff Young, chairman and CEO of Evolution1, highlighted Partner achievements from 2013, including that Evolution1 powers more than 20 private exchange solutions with its Defined Contribution solution, 1Plan by Evolution1®. Additionally he outlined market opportunities and upcoming product strategies and discussed the new industry-leading 1View by Evolution1®.

Accessible via the web or a mobile device, 1View automatically captures and categorizes healthcare expenses in a simple, dashboard view to provide consumers a consolidated picture of their healthcare expenses. With 1View, consumers are empowered to make better decisions about how to best use their healthcare dollars – from managing payments to meet today’s healthcare needs to planning and budgeting to make better decisions about future healthcare expenditures. For administrators, 1View reduces administrative costs by automating payments to consumers and providers and through increased auto-substantiation on card payments.

Partner Conference 2014 includes product keynotes, concurrent session tracks, and healthcare trends general sessions – presented by members of the Healthcare Trends Institute’s Advisory Board – that delve into top-of-mind industry topics. Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, is the guest keynote speaker.

Partner Conference, which has become the “don’t-miss” industry event for Evolution1 Partners, is designed for executives, sales and marketing leaders, and administrators interested in growing and increasing the profitability of their business. The annual premier Partner event enables attendees to experience the entire Evolution1 ecosystem.

“We are committed to providing a superior value proposition to our Partners who day in and day out work with us to reduce costs and simplify the business of healthcare,” said Young. “Partner Conference gives us the opportunity to come together for an intense agenda of learning, networking, and celebrating.”

The event includes an awards dinner and program tonight to honor Evolution1 Partners, which includes large health plans, banks, payroll providers, private exchanges, and leading third-party administrators. Awards will be given for Partner achievements in several areas including evangelism, innovation, leadership, and customer service as well as overall outstanding Partner successes.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.
