Twenty-First Century Systems for Twenty-First Century Healthcare:
Guidance on Payer Core System Project Strategy and Execution
Complex new care and payment models are replacing traditional fee-for-service as the transformation of healthcare accelerates. Innovative avenues for coordination between providers and payers are being developed. The ability to isolate and act upon data in all forms has never been more important.
These changes necessitate the use of more consistent, high-quality, and cost-effective healthcare information technology. Yet the reality is that much of healthcare's existing systems are ill-equipped to handle the demands of today's rapidly changing environment. This is particularly true for payer core systems.
As a result, many organizations are exploring the replacement of their legacy systems. Determining the best platform for managing both today's operations and tomorrow's needs can be a daunting task. Just as challenging is ensuring the selected technology is implemented properly and configured to the unique requirements of your organization.
The essays in this eBook offer guidance and insight into the planning and execution of a core system replacement project. Written by information technology consulting experts at Change Healthcare, the articles reflect lessons learned from hundreds of core system projects successfully completed over the past decade in partnership with dozens of health plan clients nationwide.
