ACHRM Sponsorships

Mission:

 To provide employers leading-edge healthcare cost containment and health risk management strategies in a collaborative Think Tank environment offering workshops, roundtables, webinars, pilots, case studies, along with strategic initiative teams to advance the development and implementation of innovative methodologies.  Offer assessment, solutions, and implementation services for our employers seeking assistance in more effectively evaluating their specific challenges and struggling to implement solutions. 

Community:

The Association for Corporate Health Risk Management (ACHRM) Members are predominantly professionals who are responsible for managing health risks and containing healthcare costs for their organizations (for-profit, not-for-profit, foundations, and public entities) ranging in size up to 30,000 employees or members. These professionals include CEOs, CFOs, COOs, HR Directors, Risk/Benefit Managers, Wellness Directors, Medical Directors, Informatics, Safety / Facilities Mangers, among other professionals.

 In addition to our employers, ACHRM’s community includes best-in-class, disruptive solution providers, national thought leaders, and leading-edge health insurance and other consultants, who offer ideas, experiences, and strategies to assist us in fulfilling our Mission.  These memberships and sponsorships are only granted on a select basis.

 ACHRM also values relationships with other membership-based organizations and trade associations.  ACHRM has offered panels and other collaborative efforts at conferences and other events.  These groups have also participated in ACHRM’s Strategic Initiatives.

Membership Value Proposition:

As reflected in the table below, ACHRM has added three new Levels of Value Proposition  in response to the challenges of our Employer community to manage healthcare costs.  These “levels” provide support to implement solutions developed during ACHRM events or within our Executive Teams.  Building upon ACHRM’s education and solution development efforts, which are captured in Levels One and Two, ACHRM has added the following, which are defined in Levels Three, Four and Five:

  1. Empowering Employer Strategic Assessment / Executive Summary (Recommendations)

  2. Menu of Solutions

  3. Implementation Services   

 Our Individual and Corporate Employer Members can participate in ACHRM’s ‘strategic assessment’ to identify gaps and opportunities with their current framework to enhance and improve their current strategies, or can choose to engage in support from ACHRM’s menu of strategies and implementation services. Our enhanced model not only benefits our Employer Members, but it also provides greater opportunities for our Consultant Members and Sponsor Partners.
