Healthcare Industry Challenges for Payers
Inflexible, Aging Infrastructures
Today's healthcare information technology legacy systems are, for the most part, one-size-fits-all solutions that are inflexible, don't scale well, and designed with siloed code components rather than reusable components, making enhancing and extending them difficult. Ultramatics solutions for HealthCare include our UltraStart Business Solutions for Enterprise Modernization and Cloud and Managed Services which allow for integration and modernization of legacy systems in an incremental fashion.
Evolving Regulations and Regulatory Challenges
Standards compliance requires periodic system, process, and procedure overhauls. Upcoming impacts include HIPAA 5010 and ICD 10 code set changes mandated in the coming years, as well as required compliance with new HL7 clinical data exchange standards. Ultramatics Solutions for Evolving Regulations and Regulatory Challenges include our UltraStart Business Solutions for HealthCare Compliance.
Payer / Provider Integration
Many of the industry's current challenges revolve around Payer/Provider Integration and data integration and interoperability in general. As HIPAA 5010 and ICD 10 compliance loom on the horizon, it is more important than ever for payers and providers to enable their systems to talk to one another. HIPAA 5010 security and transaction standards will enable much of this interoperability, but you must ensure that your legacy systems are prepared for these challenges. Ultramatics Solutions for Payer/Provider Integration include our UltraStart Business Solutions for Business Integration.
