While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare). While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

In this white paper we demonstrate why CFOs must focus their attention on advancing along three distinct strategic tiers: 1) Optimizing the health system’s fiscal health. Even if it’s already good it needs to be even better to weather inevitable industry changes. 2) Thinking outside the walls of the health system by optimizing the ecosystem of providers, the system of care, and physician loyalty. 3) Optimizing the patient experience: harness the health system to deliver what patients value most.

New digital technologies— specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency. However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.

The healthcare payer ecosystem in the United States has changed dramatically over the last decade and is expected to evolve at an even faster pace over the next few years. Many world-class companies involved in healthcare payment processing are finding themselves constrained by their existing information technology infrastructure. The silos that they built around business-to-business (B2B) processing are constraining them, making it difficult to achieve governmental mandates and (more importantly) increase processing efficiency and competitive advantage. Gone are the days of a small set of data following static and simple standards traded between a limited set of organizations. Gone are the days where the rules for when data is valid versus invalid can expressed in a paragraph or two. Gone are the days when information about a healthcare payment was almost entirely about the "who," "when," and "how much."
