    Digital Retail Services: Orchestrating an Omnichannel Experience

    Retail is increasingly hyperpersonal and omnichannel. Pandemic lockdowns and supply chain disruptions have actually raised the bar for consumer expectations as they found they could have anything delivered right to their doorstep. That raised bar means that retailers are increasingly relying on data and AI to map consumer sentiment and needs, and they are deploying digital technology including virtual reality and other immersive technologies to improve the customer experience. However, all of this requires investment and seamless orchestration of multiple technologies. This is best done with partners. These emerging trends are covered in Avasant’s Retail Digital Services 2022–2023 RadarView™.

    Autonomous Medical Coding Key to Transformation of Claims Processing

With automation technologies now delivering accuracy, agility, and process visibility, adoption of autonomous medical coding (AMC) products is growing. However, choosing the right AMC product is not easy. There are dozens on the market, and they are not created equal. These trends are covered in Avasant’s new Autonomous Medical Coding Products 2022 RadarView™ Scan.

    Preventive Care Investments Help Healthcare Payors Reduce Costs and Improve Quality of Care

    With the rise in healthcare spending, payors are evaluating different methodologies to contain costs and improve care delivery. Major strategic goals for payors include incorporating Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) in policy calculation, shifting to a value-based care model with price transparency, and adhering to interoperability laws. However, the most critical goal is to invest in preventive care and facilitate the shift from reactive to proactive care. Payors can achieve up to 42% ROI over three years by implementing preventive care measures such as promoting lifestyle modifications, building digital health platforms, and launching apps.

    Comparative Analysis of IT Spending in the Life Sciences

    As with many high-tech enterprises, life science companies make considerable investments in information technology. In this study, we look at IT spending and staffing in the life science sector by comparing key, high-level metrics against a broad sample of organizations. For the comparative analysis, we use three measures of IT intensity: IT spending a percentage of revenue, IT spending per user, and application spending per user. To determine where spending differs, we break down IT spending into five functional areas: IT management, applications, data center, network, and end-user support. We also examine IT staff headcount by those same functional areas. We conclude with our assessment of where life science organizations should focus their efforts to improve IT performance.
