We recently had the pleasure of traveling to Austin for the annual America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute & Expo conference. From June 7-9th, Appian was joined by thousands of conference attendees focused on thinking differently and finding innovative solutions for organizational success during this critical and uncertain time in healthcare. Nearly 200 exhibitors, including Appian, were on the conference floor to spark conversations and offer answers to the various challenges that many in this industry are facing.

In particular, discussions at the conference centered around using the right technology to transform and optimize operations for delivering more cost effective and higher quality care to members. Attendees were very interested in care management, utilization management and provider data. Our message about unifying data using a low-code approach really resonated with people.

We had live demos at our booth that were well-received by attendees about how Appian's digital transformation platform has helped others in the healthcare industry. Check out this summary of the five specific ways Appian drives healthcare transformation. If you didn't get a chance to stop by for a demo, let us knowand we can set up a time to show you one specific to your business goals.

Appian also spoke in the Presentation Theater about "Achieving Operational Efficiency and Effectiveness with Digital Transformation Technology." We focused on the driving forces behind transformation in healthcare, as well as some new approaches to achieving cost savings and operating efficiencies across provider data management and utilization management.

Another highlight from AHIP was exploring Austin's unique food and culture. The Appian-sponsored Austin Eats Food Tour took a group of conference attendees to four local eateries for some evening entertainment, networking, and discussions on the first night of the conference. Tour stops included some of Austin's most eclectic and popular dining locations. Great food, lively conversations, and an insider's taste of Austin made this food tour a huge hit. We can't wait to host another food tour at next year's AHIP Institute & Expo in San Diego to try out their local eats and talk about the ever-changing landscape of healthcare.

The AHIP Institute & Expo was overall an insightful, engaging, and fun conference experience. If you were unable to attend or missed us while you were there, contact us and we can set a time to explore how Appian can help with your healthcare challenges.
