The traditional payer business model is fast becoming obsolete. Blues organizations that cling to the status quo or business as usual risk jeopardizing their reputations and business, because people are more than patients. Increasingly, employers are driving the growing demand for more solutions to engage customers. In response, healthcare incumbents and new entrants are building solutions to address rising costs and meet consumers’ demands for personalization, price transparency, access, and seamless, simple experiences. Proactive engagement can help your members lead healthier lives while improving outcomes for payers and other players. With 5% of Americans consuming 50% of healthcare costs, identifying and engaging high-risk, high-cost customer segments is essential to sustainability.

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.

Value-based care is the predominant model for enabling the healthcare industry to control costs and deliver better information to consumers. The basic idea is that reimbursements are based on the quality of the outcome of a procedure, episode of care, use of a device or therapy. Under this model, life sciences companies are rewarded for improving health outcomes and/or reducing the costs to achieve those outcomes. It requires life sciences companies to rethink many of their processes, from R&D through the commercial phase. Navigating those momentous shifts requires that life sciences companies embrace a range of digital technologies which will enable a holistic approach to value-based care. This white paper will examine the drive for value-based care, its impact on life sciences companies and how technology platforms can address the challenges the industry is facing.

Healthcare technologies have proven their worth for practitioners and facilities in increasing the quality of patient care while saving time and streamlining operations. In some cases, however, the benefits of these technologies are outweighed by their impact on the network, slowing network performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.Software-defined networking can be the bridge to help healthcare providers update their networks and avoid disruption. SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.

In our always-on, always-connected world, healthcare consumers expect instant access to customer service, not just from 9 AM to 5 PM. It’s often no longer good enough for health plans to staff call centers during standard business hours. Members today typically want to be able to log in and help themselves to the answers they need from self-service channels whenever they want — and they want the experience to be highly personal. One contact center benchmark study (see next page) revealed self-service channels can be a win-win for both businesses and consumers.1 When done well, self-service solutions can help businesses improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs. And consumers appreciate the convenience of getting answers quickly and efficiently.
