Market dynamics and rapid innovation are transforming the delivery of healthcare and forcing payers and providers to reconsider historical value propositions and business models. Challenges and opportunities include addressing an aging population, managing chronic disease, implementing value-based relationships, and migrating to a consumer-driven marketplace enhanced by technology that puts wellbeing in its center.
Payers and providers are also dealing with consolidation across the delivery spectrum and the influx of non-traditional market players, all while working to involve and influence members more directly and via new modalities. Employers are straddling innovation and disruption, attrition and fiscal balance. All stakeholders must navigate a fluid regulatory environment as they deploy solutions to deliver better outcomes while containing costs.
Health Policy is evolving to enable equitable access to care across population segments, with dual goals of optimizing care delivery and driving efficiency through innovative incentives and technologies. In turn, this influences all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem – payers, providers, employers, government and life sciences – to adapt and evolve their products and services in a future-minded way, bringing the right care at the right time in the right place to all patients.
