Consulting Services for the Healthcare Industry
Avasant advises the entire spectrum of healthcare organizations – healthcare providers (including hospital systems, clinics, primary care networks) and healthcare payors (healthcare insurance providers) – addressing the key challenges of regulatory compliance, payor-provider convergence, clinical systems integration, interoperability, population health management, and security mandates. As payors and providers aim to achieve integration of clinical systems and analytics, our healthcare consulting services help clients optimize business processes and identify solutions that are scalable, supporting new technologies such as cloud-based models, telemedicine, and remote patient monitoring.
Healthcare Payors: Regulatory mandates and shifting consumer preferences require payors to continuously transform how they do business. Our healthcare consulting services help health insurance providers be agile and cost-effective through adoption of digital technologies, providing solutions for cost optimization through price benchmarking and IT and business process outsourcing.
Healthcare Providers: With new operating models coming from the Affordable Care Act and elevated concerns about data ownership, security, and privacy, we help our healthcare clients formulate technology strategy, improve healthcare delivery, and optimize their business processes and IT operations.
HEALTHCARE CLIENT CASE STUDY
A regional healthcare delivery network saw the merging of technology and medical capabilities as a gateway for improved care. We conducted a holistic assessment of their environment, taking into account regulation, safety, technology and policy to produce a comprehensive technology investment strategy. Through the alignment of IT capabilities and business needs, our client was not only able to better support its patients but also reduced costs and increased effectiveness. Implementing advanced technologies has better equipped this client to deliver care for its 350,000 patients annually.
