(NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, will host a live webinar titled “The Health Plan Blueprint: Managing Change Through Innovation in the Age of the Customer” with a guest speaker from Forrester Research on February 12, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. EST.

During this webinar, Benefitfocus Director of Marketplaces Shandon Fowler, Benefitfocus Enterprise Product Architect Tom Dugan and guest speaker, Forrester Research Senior Analyst Peter Mueller will address current market trends and focus on how health insurers and administrators can successfully innovate over the next three to five years through intelligent planning and partnering.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other macro-forces have ignited disruption in the healthcare industry and spurred an emerging B2C paradigm. The side effects of the evolving healthcare landscape include an increasing demand for direct-to-consumer capabilities, a need for enhanced digital strategies and tools, and continued pressure on plan providers to reduce administrative costs.

The webinar will focus on strategies to effectively lead organizational change within these five areas:

  • Acquisition and Retention
  • ACA
  • Consumerism
  • Brand Evolution
  • Compliance and Regulations
