This year, healthcare executives cited issues such as regulatory compliance, data analytics, controlling costs and managing cybersecurity as key concerns for 2017. The research also found:
- Nearly 60 percent of respondents would prioritize cost transparency over quality transparency, indicating better cost management and patient education in the face of consumerism are important priorities.
- More than half of healthcare executives polled reported they expect their financial burdens tied to the Affordable Care Act will worsen in 2017, a noteworthy increase in concern from last year's report.
- Most payers and providers applying data analytics are seeing slight to moderate impacts from using these techniques and processes.
"Our findings show 2017 will be a notable year for healthcare as organizations change how they deliver care, handle reimbursements, engage patients and navigate new policies," said
"Our customers, partners and colleagues are at the forefront of healthcare's transformation and need the latest research and forward-thinking insights to drive growth and enhance patient-centric, cost-effective care," said
