Summary:

This web conference will provide IT buyers with an industry snapshot as to where specific payer technologies lie. By dividing technologies into three major adoption categories - transformational, incremental, and opportunistic, this presentation addresses the short, medium, and long term view. Payers are using a combination of industry-agnostic, industry-specific, workflow, and cloud software. Payers are attempting to squeeze incremental productivity while breaking through with digitally transformative technology for consumer engagement, risk adjustment, and value-based reimbursement. This will allow payers to stay afloat and competitive in the lull as they await the evolution of TrumpCare.

Speaker:

Jeff Rivkin, Research Director, Payer IT Strategies, IDC Health Insights

Key Takeaways:

  • The introduction of value-based care and reimbursement policies, the uncertainty of the insurance role caused by the election result, and the financial uncertainty derived from the evolution of risk adjustment, risk corridors, and other "make whole" processes put the payer CIO in a permanent reactive mode.
  • What do we know in 2017? We do know that payers need reengineering of their operational systems as what payers have simply won't work anymore without significant patch, append, and hope.
  • Key needs for payers including enrollment to evolve toward a retail shopping model and others
  • In-depth analysis of the focus required on data integration, plumbing, workflow, analytics, and Big Data
  • A look at the organizational level and how payers are merging and internally separating regulated legal entities away from nonregulated legal entities.
