Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.

Healthcare technologies have proven their worth for practitioners and facilities in increasing the quality of patient care while saving time and streamlining operations. In some cases, however, the benefits of these technologies are outweighed by their impact on the network, slowing network performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.Software-defined networking can be the bridge to help healthcare providers update their networks and avoid disruption. SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.

In our always-on, always-connected world, healthcare consumers expect instant access to customer service, not just from 9 AM to 5 PM. It’s often no longer good enough for health plans to staff call centers during standard business hours. Members today typically want to be able to log in and help themselves to the answers they need from self-service channels whenever they want — and they want the experience to be highly personal. One contact center benchmark study (see next page) revealed self-service channels can be a win-win for both businesses and consumers.1 When done well, self-service solutions can help businesses improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs. And consumers appreciate the convenience of getting answers quickly and efficiently.
