This IDC Perspective summarizes the new payer IT variables about COVID-19 and subsequent legislation and consumer-oriented actions that have been introduced in the past month."Just when payer IT had gotten its feet under it after a decade of mandates and just when it could focus on proactive themes of interoperability, cloud, core transformation, customer and provider 360, blockchain, robotics, and ML/AI, progressive thought was derailed.
