Payer/provider interoperability, health insurance exchanges among top 10 issues on The Managed Care Executive Group’s radar for 2012.

Although the focus of discussion among health plan thought leaders who convened in Florida last month at The Managed Care Executive Group (MCEG) ran the gamut from care management to meaningful use, to medical informatics, payment reforms, HSAs and more, technology’s role in the industry’s success was evident.

Led by industry experts, the 23rd Annual Forum focused heavily on considerations—such as whether this is "the end of healthcare as we know it,” a conversation that has been floating around recently. Other discussions centered around "innovation and technological change,” "making the leap from volume to value,” "Federal plans, programs and challenges” and "how the social organization might tap the collective genius of health plan communities.”
