Health Plans, Engage! Why Payers That Prioritize Member Monitoring, Engagement, and Care Coordination will Lead in 2022
Health plans are facing 3 member engagement changes: Reduced access to care, high-risk only programs do not reach enough members, members expect convenient engagement options.
At the beginning of the pandemic, health plans scrambled to quickly create member engagement programs but saw subpar results. As the pandemic continues and changes to healthcare become normalized, members’ expectations have changed — their satisfaction is directly tied to whether the health plan is making it easier or harder for them to access the care they need remotely. Now health plans are purposefully building robust, convenient member engagement programs that address chronic and behavioral health conditions to support “whole-patient health.”
Learn 3 major changes that payer organizations are facing from the pandemic and 3 strategies for overcoming them and creating long-term success.
How Healthcare is Using AI to Automate Customer Experiences
Consumerism was on the rise prior to the pandemic as we looked for ways to make our daily interactions more convenient and efficient in a tumultuous time. We quickly adjusted our lives in response to COVID-19, amplifying this consumerism trend. Customer expectations changed, and COVID-19 forced companies of all kinds to innovate at an accelerated rate to make experiences as self-service and user-friendly as possible. Seemingly overnight, real time communication, digital interactions and tracking of everything from retail purchases to pizzas became the norm. Now, consumerism has taken over every facet of our lives, regardless of our generation. It is the rule rather than the exception.
During this time, the healthcare industry made rapid strides to innovate in response to changed market conditions and member and patient needs and expectations. Regardless of what happens next in our “new normal”, this evolution needs to continue, and center more and more around implementing experience automation powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase member and patient satisfaction, relieve staff burden and power more self-service.
Solutions for the Member Journey
Health plans today are faced with the challenge of achieving outcomes as directed by numerous regulatory agencies. These outcomes are based on measures for quality, performance and member experience that influence the health plan Star rating. Currently, the emphasis is on the total member experience, a measure that was not a focal point in previous years. As such, the pressure is on health plans to create and deliver an optimal customer experience at every point in the member journey.
In this whitepaper, learn about the challenges health plans face and the solutions for each touchpoint in the member journey.

The Insider Guide To Maximizing Your Remote Patient Monitoring Revenue and Outcomes
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is revolutionizing the way in which modern healthcare is provided. With demand on health systems soaring there is a need to manage patients and provide services in new ways that help reduce costs and improve outcomes, across all aspects of the care continuum.
Addressing a Major Gap in the Virtual Care Landscape:
Creating a Remote Patient Monitoring Program that Supports Behavioral Health and Social Determinants of Health
The pandemic has both exacerbated and brought to light the urgent need to support patients facing behavioral health and social determinants needs.

Pharmaceutical Sales Strategies Post-COVID-19: The Benefits of Virtual Engagement
In less than a week, in the face of a pandemic, the pharmaceutical sales model changed forever. In-person healthcare provider (HCP) visits came to a screeching halt and brand marketers scrambled to find ways to educate and engage these providers remotely. While the pandemic may have taken us by surprise, we should acknowledge that, even before the pandemic, pharmaceutical sales teams faced significant challenges.
One solution for these challenges is to engage HCPs—virtually.

How Healthy Are Your Market Access Programs? A guide to performing check-ups on pharmaceutical distribution and patient access programs
Pharmaceutical manufacturers invest countless resources to develop product distribution and patient access programs to maximize product success. But eventually most programs will experience service disruptions, face unforeseen challenges, and receive negative feedback from stakeholders.
Why does that happen?
Just as patients are encouraged to get annual check-ups to assess their overall health even when they're feeling fine, manufacturers should assess the health of their market access programs to be proactive in managing potential operational, strategic, and budgetary issues.

Walmart's Second Opinion: How a Retail Giant is Bringing Cost Transparency and Better Quality to Healthcare
As steadily rising healthcare costs have increased financial pressure on employers, one company has started fighting back: Walmart. Driven by Sam Walton’s vision of providing high quality at low cost in every way, Walmart began by offering its employees the opportunity to have high cost procedures evaluated, and performed, if deemed necessary, at a limited number of top-notch medical centers. The point of the Centers of Excellence program was to be sure the procedures were actually the best choice for the patients, and if they were indeed needed, they would be carried out at a facility with optimal outcomes. Since then, Walmart has made many other bold steps, including their $4 prescriptions, their primary care clinics, and more. Today, Walmart is at the forefront of driving healthcare costs down for patients. A primary care visit to a Walmart Care Clinic costs as little as $20 for cash-paying customers, while visits for employees on qualifying insurance plans cost as little as $4.
