Health Plan Operations
Focusing on cost, operations, and patients
Numerous challenges and questions have surfaced since implementation of the Affordable Care Act began in 2013, making it difficult for health plans to find solid ground. Continued consolidation and fundamental structural changes to the industry, driven by health care reform, are giving cause for many plan operators to focus as never before on cost containment, efficient operations and, most importantly, patient outcomes.
Many forward-thinking executives are considering innovative new business models that can help maintain positive margins and develop new approaches to patient care, new product offerings, cost reduction, and improved efficiencies.
