icyou Provides Opportunity to See Inside and Outside the 2009 AHIP Conference

icyou captured video interviews from both inside and outside the America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute 2009 conference as the topic of healthcare reform heated up and reaffirmed that change is imminent. The user-generated video aggregator announced today the release of the “AHIP Conference 2009” channel on its Web site. This channel was created to share video interviews from top executives attending the San Diego conference June 3-5.

“While many of the nation’s leaders were on the East Coast last week talking about healthcare and policy,” explained Nina Sossamon-Pogue, vice president of Benefitfocus Media, “many people who will be influencing that policy were at AHIP. Our icyou media team interviewed them about how their technology solutions could help cut healthcare costs.”

Business leaders were in abundance throughout the San Diego Conference Center, as can be seen on the channel. From describing current healthcare communication practices to addressing the need for financial services related to consumer-driven healthcare, the videos on the “AHIP Conference 2009” channel focus on the changes occurring in healthcare, and each company’s plans to be part of the solutions.

Some videos featured on the channel include interviews with:

  • Bret Siarkowski, founder, CTO and chairman of CaseNet
  • Alexandra Drane, founder and president of Eliza Corporation
  • Chad Wilkins, CEO of OptumHealth Financial Services
  • Jeff Margolis, president and CEO of The TriZetto Group

At the Conference, attendees heard the latest views and opinions on the keys to successful healthcare reform. Traveling outside the conference walls, icyou captured the voices of activists who protested the current state of healthcare in the United States.

“Everyone has a voice on icyou,” stated Sossamon-Pogue. “We are an aggregator of health videos, facilitating conversations through social media. It is important to have messages on the channel that provide the full spectrum of conferences and events.”

The “AHIP Conference 2009” channel is accessible through the following link: http://www.icyou.com/channel/ahip-conference-2009. The Web site’s social media design makes it easy for any of these interviews to easily be placed in a blog or included in an article online with the embed code.

Originally launched in September 2007, icyou has rapidly become the most diverse healthcare video aggregator on the Internet. Built around common health concerns, the Web site features videos uploaded by patients, caregivers, doctors and experts. Editorial staff for icyou work with medical editors and contributing physicians to internally produce high-quality videos and to review video content posted to the site.
