The market dynamics of the healthcare industry have changed significantly with the growing impact of consumerism, digitalization, preventative healthcare and regulations. Given these rapid paces of changes in healthcare, health insurers must be equipped with flexible, adaptive IT systems. They need technology to effectively transform with the times. More than ever, payers need to move with lightning speed and accuracy. They must be able to create new products, modify plans, execute new reimbursement models, and much more.
Flexibility is the name of the game and the new gold standard in health IT systems, yet many payers remain ill-equipped with rigid legacy systems. A majority of health insurers reported that they would have to replace some or all of their legacy systems, and most didn’t have effective processes in place to replace them. Evidently, many health insurers are struggling with rigid, antiquated systems incapable of supporting quick change.
To effectively address these issues, health insurers should consider cloud computing. Cloud services offer scalability and the ability to adjust to demand rapidly. Cloud services can also provide faster deployments and higher customer satisfaction as well as improved collaboration and productivity. Additionally, the economic benefits of cloud computing can be significant since cloud computing provides cost flexibility and the potential for reduced costs. So, the question now is: Is there reliable vendor that provides core systems functionality in the cloud?
Oracle is pleased to announce the new release of Oracle Insurance Cloud Services solutions. Unlike some vendors that “cloud enable” their existing software products by putting the old software in the cloud, Oracle Insurance Cloud Services solutions were built from the ground up to work optimally in the cloud. Oracle is the only large-scale cloud provider that builds the entire stack in-house: hardware, firmware, software-defined networks, and business software. Healthcare payers have the option to deploy Oracle’s HIPAA-compliant components independently alongside their legacy systems or as a comprehensive suite. Because the Oracle solution is SOA-based, users can easily integrate with existing applications, scale up and consolidate systems.
