An Industry in Transition
Healthcare market dynamics, particularly fueled by regulatory change in the U.S., challenges payers and providers alike to improve the quality of care while simultaneously reducing costs. Stakeholders are looking to harness new data, communication technology and analytics to drive better decisions and engage patients.
- Financial pressure on healthcare systems continue to increase - caused by demographic shifts driving demand while reimbursement funds declines.
- Changing payment models require improved coordination and collaboration in patient care supported by new public and private accountable care models.
- Rise of consumer-centric healthcare means greater individual participation in payment and plan selection, and more access to health information.
Healthcare organizations are under relentless pressure to improve top line growth while reducing costs, and are looking for new ways to collaborate and drive engagement to positively impact outcomes.
