Safety Awards: Chicagoland AGC operates our Safety Award program to recognize General and Specialty contractors for outstanding safety performance. We look forward to honoring this year’s recipients at the Spring Summit luncheon.

Presenters:

Mike Ochoa / CEO of ASCENDpbm

Mike has built a reputation for developing business strategies and producing healthy, enduring results by focusing on dramatically bending the cost curve on the primary care and pharmaceutical components of an employer’s health plan to improve outcomes, increase engagement, and drive costs down. Mike has formulated an integrative approach – preventive medicine coupled with population health – focusing on the patient-physician relationship to reduce sprawling waste and improve outcomes for all stakeholders.

Andy Reeves, R.Ph. / COO of ASCENDpbm

Standing at the forefront of the evolving healthcare industry, Andy spent the past five years cultivating an industry-wide shift to value-based services and preventive care while positioning ASCEND as a disruptive leader in the employer benefit and health delivery environment. As a Pharmacist, Andy closes the gap for employers seeking greater clarity into the rising costs of specialty and compounding medications while providing inventive, out-of-the-box solutions to overcome cost barriers.

The National Safety Council reported in January that, for the first time on record, the odds of dying from an unintentional opioid overdose in a given lifetime (1 in 96) are greater than the lifetime odds of dying in a motor vehicle-related crash (1 in 103).

Although this may seem shocking, opioid overdoses have been at an epidemic level in the United States for years. In fact, drug poisoning now is the No. 1 cause of unintentional death. “Every day, more than 100 people die from opioid drugs – 37,814 people every year – and many of these overdoses are from prescription opioid medicine,” NSC states.
