Building a digital dental payer: Pitfalls to avoid and essential steps to "being digital."
Wednesday, September 212:15 PM - 3:15 PM CT
Many traditional insurers haven’t evolved their technology strategies and this relative stasis has put them in a challenging position that compounds over time. The challenge becomes: how do you dig yourself out of old code and fragile applications but keep your business running? How do you rebuild without totally disrupting your current customers and internal stakeholders? Your customers' expectations have changed, have you? The answer is that you become a digital payer organization. This is no small task and it doesn’t happen overnight—we know firsthand, having successfully helped some of our most valued clients through this journey. But we also know that it’s imperative to build a better business that’s tech-driven and human-centered, one that’s agile and ready to participate in a more dynamic, connected health care system focused on holistic patient health. Our team will share common mistakes made by Health Plans that we think can accelerate the digital revolution. This session aims to dive into the mistakes we’ve seen in the past and the essential ingredients for building digital dental payers.
