The payer landscape is rapidly changing with organizations challenged to reduce rising medical and administrative costs, manage through the uncertainty of health care reform and combat disintermediation from other risk bearing entities (RBEs). As a result, payers are searching for scalable solutions that educate and engage members to facilitate a meaningful and contextual exchange of information between members and their providers. Many are looking to connected health and mobile apps to drive this engagement and are demanding a medical-grade platform designed to meet HIPAA requirements for the exchange of sensitive patient information.
