Session description

Health plans in 2014 will witness wholesome changes in the membership mix across its lines of business due to increased enrollment of individual and Medicaid populace. Industry progress in the care management arena in 2013 has been good but discrete. There are some examples of health plans, which have bought advanced statistical tools for clinical analytics, without being able to utilize the results produced in care management process improvement. Additionally, in the new healthcare landscape, where ACOs will be playing a dominant role, no care management strategy will be successful unless providers and members are involved to share specific responsibility. This calls for the health plan to establish an integrated care management infrastructure – built on advanced analytics, process integration, active consumer engagement, and provider collaboration.
