In the wake of skyrocketing insurance premiums, payers face deep-seated pressure to help lower healthcare costs and improve patient outcomes. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), set to expand insurance coverage to over 32 million new patients, simultaneously changes how health plans sell and deliver healthcare benefits while restricting healthcare payer business expenses. As a result of this disruptive force, U.S. healthcare payers now face a decade long business transformation journey that will carry growing market demands and financial pressures.
