Payers already face a formidable challenge when it comes to internal data management. After years of consolidation in the industry, many payers have a collection of legacy systems cobbled together to run their operations. This makes data management difficult for things like claims, provider directories, and member demographics. And those are just “the basics”.

Now, as quality measurement evolves and payers experiment in value-based payment, there’s an acute need for the integration of real-time clinical data to support operations and care management. Finally, there are the CMS and ONC final rules that create new requirements for payers to share data with members and other payers.

When you put it all together, payers have a monumental data management task in front of them.

Today we’re talking with Jordan Bazinsky, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Cotiviti. We discuss the current state of payer data, evolving clinical data needs, and the CMS and ONC final rules.

This episode lays the foundation for a new #HCBiz series around payer data that aims to chart a course through these challenges. Stay tuned for more!
