Emids Recognized in the 2022 HFS Horizons Report for Healthcare Payer Service Providers

Emids, a leader in digital engineering and transformation solutions to the healthcare and life sciences industries, has been positioned among the 2022 HFS Horizons Report for Healthcare Payer Service Providers.

HFS assessed the capabilities of 21 healthcare payer service providers to help buyers—including government agencies, health plans and self-insured employers—find the service provider that best suits their needs in the evolving healthcare market.

There’s a blurring of industry lines with an increasing number of non-traditional healthcare enterprises entering the $4 trillion U.S. healthcare market, leading to positive market disruptions that offer opportunities to overcome inefficiencies, poor outcomes, and increasing costs.

The payer market is seeing many shifts as consumer expectations evolve and financial pressures grow. One of these shifts involves vertical integrations among payers, which is providing healthcare enterprises the opportunity to move away from dwindling revenues and shrinking margins.

“We’re thrilled that Emids was recognized for its work in providing payers the impactful technology solutions they need to navigate the changing healthcare landscape,” said Praveen Soti, Emids President for Payer and Digital Solutions.

“This reflects our commitment to supporting our clients in this evolving industry as their success is critical in making healthcare better for all stakeholders involved—especially the consumer.”

Praveen Soti, added that Emids continues to deliver an array of offerings including design-led engineering, automation, advanced data analytics, core platforms and rapid low code engineering that have supported payer organizations in delivering an outstanding member experience, reducing the cost of care and supporting the transition to value based care.

Emids continues to work at the intersection of design, engineering and domain expertise, helping clients blaze new trails and positively impact the future of health—including developing new market facing capabilities when working with payer clients amid this exciting time in the world of healthcare.

Emids Ranked Amongst HFS Research’s Top 10 HCP Service Providers 2022 Report

Emids, a leader in digital engineering and transformation solutions to the healthcare and life sciences industries, has been positioned amongst the HFS Top 10: HCP Service Providers 2022 report.

HFS assessed and rated 17 service providers that serve healthcare service providers from primary care, acute care, specialty care and post-acute care. The report examined service providers’ role in the dynamic care delivery industry, assessing and rating participants across a defined series of innovation, execution, OneOffice™ alignment, and voice of the customer.

“We’re pleased to have been included in the HFS Top 10 report through our work helping providers to create technology solutions that improve care. It reflects our commitment to guiding our clients through the ever-changing digital landscape. The success of care providers in this digital shift is so critical as their work has a direct impact on the lives of patients.”

Sriraman Nagarajan

President, Life Sciences and Provider at Emids

The healthcare provider market is seeing unprecedented challenges and Emids is uniquely positioned to guide them through this shift to digital. The pandemic exacerbated physician/caregiver burnout and the impending talent shortage is putting emphasis on how automation can remove repetitive tasks and how the usability of digital solutions used in every day work can ease the burden on both patients and providers.

The push to digital is also putting pressure on providers to provide the experiences that patients are used to from leading consumer brands through tools like Digital Front Doors and virtual assistants that can simplify appointment booking or symptom checking/management.

The data that all these new and existing tools create also must be made accessible, usable and connected in order to leverage AI/ML or advanced analytics to improve patient outcomes.

“Coming out of the pandemic the entire healthcare system is facing significant challenges yet, at the same time, they have a unique opportunity to invest in their digital transformation and lead the paradigm shift that will deliver better care for patients while reducing the cost of care. I’m extremely proud of the work we’re doing here at Emids to guide our provider clients through this tremendous opportunity and this report is recognition that we’re on the right path.”
