This IDC Health Insights report analyzes the results of the Annual Payer Survey, June 2015 (n = 60). Analytics is an important category that transcends many payer functions, and analytics is the most important driver of growth in spending for payer IT services. The most recent Annual Payer Survey reflects payer interest in almost 20 types of analytics. This report focuses on key responses regarding demand from payers for IT consulting and IT outsourcing related to analytics."Large payers and demand for consulting provide leading indicators of market demand," reports Sven Lohse, research manager for IDC Health Insights' Healthcare IT Services Strategies. "This report draws out the implications for demand." This is particularly true for three types of IT services related to analytics: business and operational analytics (poised for growth), clinical analytics (still rising), and fraud, waste and abuse (peaking).
