"2012 will be a turning point for health plans; they must execute ICD-10 conversion and re-create themselves to actively participate in accountable care," says Cynthia Burghard, research director. "The ability of health plans to meet these demands will, in large part, determine their future participation in healthcare."
"Care management, analytics, and reimbursement strategies are the key areas for health plans. Continued pressure to hold down costs will not abate as new and innovative programs will need to be designed."
