AHIP to launch new Innovation Lab

America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) announced the opening of a new Innovation Lab in Chicago's West Loop. The Lab uses peer groups of healthcare professionals to form working groups focused on issues such as chronic care management, population health, big data, fraud and abuse and telemedicine. This is a first-of-its-kind healthcare action hub, AHIP said. "As technology continues to drive health care stakeholders to improve, the Innovation Lab is a terrific move forward in which the health plans can leverage best-in-class partnerships and resources to transform health care for consumers," said AHIP President and CEO Karen Ignagni.
