Best Practices: Benchmarks — Healthcare Payer Technology Spending Trends and Investment Priorities, 2009–2010

This Health Industry Insight report assesses healthcare payer-projected technology investments for 2009-2010. An active and evolving healthcare market is driving an active technology investment market, despite the economic challenges. Industry investment projections reflected in Health Industry Insights' first-quarter 2009 Healthcare Payer Technology Survey are also corroborated by activities and research at the June 2009 America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) meeting.

"Healthcare payer-projected technology investment suggests a bright spot, even a growth opportunity, amid the otherwise dreary economic environment of 2009. Healthcare payers plan to continue technology rationalization plans and invest in core and specialized technologies and applications to meet new product, new reimbursement, transparency, and regulatory demands," says Janice Young, program director, Health Industry Insights, Healthcare Payer Research.
