TRANSFORMATION

In a rapidly changing world, we can all envision a future where quality and economics are vastly improved, where epic change can overcome existing constraints and enable companies to deliver unprecedented value. At Aura Solution Company Limited, we see this transformation unfolding in the healthcare industry, driven by the emergence of mega players with the market influence and technological infrastructure to revolutionize healthcare delivery.

 

The Rise of Mega Players in Healthcare

In this decade, the largest health organizations are poised to reshape the healthcare landscape. These mega players possess the advanced technology infrastructure necessary to harness the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and the capability to attract top-tier talent. Their ability to re-engineer processes from the ground up positions them to create significant new value in the industry. These organizations are not only equipped to manage existing challenges but also to innovate and lead the way in addressing emerging needs.

Formation of Ecosystems for Value, Trust, and Equity

The healthcare industry is witnessing the formation of ecosystems designed to tackle persistent issues of value, trust, and equity—challenges that traditional regulations and market mechanisms have failed to solve. Traditional healthcare organizations, often limited by scale, capital, and capabilities, struggle to keep pace with rapid industry transformation and heightened regulatory scrutiny.

To address these complex problems, industry leaders must move beyond today’s transactional, competitive system. They need to cross traditional boundaries, share responsibility, resources, data, and risk, and work collaboratively to solve system-level issues. By fostering such ecosystems, we can achieve a more integrated and efficient healthcare system.

Transforming Care Delivery Models

Patients are increasingly choosing alternate sites of care, challenging traditional health systems to transform their high-cost, brick-and-mortar operations. Recent mergers between retail and digital organizations highlight the need for providers to redesign their delivery models to meet evolving consumer expectations. Providers who pursue lower-cost, high-quality alternatives to traditional services are likely to become preferred partners for payers and patients.

The shift to virtual care is well underway, supported by advances in sophisticated wearables, robotic surgery, extended reality, and other immersive technologies. These innovations enable providers to offer more personalized and convenient care, meeting the demands of today’s healthcare consumers.

Consumer Expectations and Market Competition

Consumers now expect companies to build capabilities that support convenience, personalization, and advocacy. In the highly competitive Medicare market, for example, consumers prefer zero-premium health plans that offer high levels of service. This trend underscores the need for healthcare providers to prioritize consumer-centric strategies and enhance their service offerings.

Addressing Staffing Needs and Talent Management

The healthcare sector’s staffing needs will continue to intensify, prompting industry leaders to explore outsourcing, offshoring, and managed services partnerships to fill workforce gaps. To attract and retain talent, organizations must tailor benefits, redefine the care team model, and adopt an aggressive digital and automation-led agenda to improve productivity. Leaders have various levers at their disposal to enhance employee retention, including offering competitive compensation, fostering a positive work environment, and providing opportunities for professional growth.

 

Conclusion

Aura Solution Company Limited is committed to leading the transformation of the healthcare industry. By embracing innovation, fostering collaborative ecosystems, redesigning care delivery models, and addressing staffing challenges, we aim to help healthcare organizations navigate this era of epic change. Together, we can create a healthcare system that delivers better quality, improved economics, and new value for all stakeholders.

HEALTH

TECHNOLOGY

The healthcare industry is on the brink of a major transformation driven by next-generation technology. An overwhelming majority of companies, nine out of ten, plan to increase their technology budgets over the next year. This tech-enabled transformation is seeing payers and providers leverage generative AI (GenAI) across the value chain, with the goal of enhancing member, patient, and provider experiences, boosting productivity, and reducing administrative costs.

The Impact of AI on Healthcare Affordability

AI has the potential to make healthcare significantly more affordable. According to the National Library of Medicine, AI applications could cut annual US healthcare costs by $150 billion. Much of these savings come from shifting the healthcare model from reactive to proactive care, emphasizing health management over disease treatment. This proactive approach is expected to lead to fewer hospitalizations, doctor visits, and treatments, ultimately reducing costs.

Trust and Risk Management in AI

For GenAI to be effective, organizations must prioritize trust and risk management. This involves implementing explicit usage policies, robust data governance, and responsible AI practices. An AI factory, an operating model designed to identify, assess, and deploy GenAI responsibly and efficiently, can help organizations achieve value at scale. By adopting such a model, healthcare organizations can ensure that their use of AI is both ethical and effective.

The Role of Cloud Engineering

From finance to back-office operations, cloud engineering is driving innovation at scale. It facilitates the migration of data and workloads, modernization of infrastructure and applications, and acceleration of idea realization through cutting-edge cloud-native software development. Despite the fact that 81% of health services executives have adopted the cloud, nearly half have yet to fully realize the value of their investment.

Companies that successfully become cloud-powered typically exhibit several key characteristics:

  • C-Suite Involvement and Commitment: Strong leadership and commitment from the top are crucial for driving cloud adoption and realizing its full potential.

  • Trust and Control Measures: Implementing strong measures to ensure data security and control is essential for building trust in cloud solutions.

  • Formal Data, Analytics, and AI Strategy: A well-defined strategy for leveraging data, analytics, and AI can help organizations maximize the benefits of their cloud investments.

 

Conclusion

Next-generation technology is not just enhancing current business models; it is reinventing them. By increasing their technology budgets and leveraging innovations like GenAI and cloud engineering, healthcare organizations can transform the way they operate. These advancements promise to improve patient experiences, boost productivity, and reduce costs, while also ensuring that trust and ethical considerations are at the forefront. As Aura Solution Company Limited continues to support healthcare organizations in navigating this transformation, we remain committed to helping our clients achieve sustainable, scalable value through responsible technology adoption.

Trust factors into every healthcare decision and interaction. Loyalty grows from trust. Consumers look for providers who can empathize and understand them. Patients who have had a bad experience with healthcare become discouraged from seeking care. Through our Future Cast predictive modeling platform, we can see where patient trust can be a barrier to care.  

Trust and loyalty are essential to growth. The past several years have taught us that consumers and stakeholders expect the sector to be prepared for the unexpected, including pandemics, climate disasters, wars, embargoes, labor strikes, market crashes and cyber-attacks. Leaders should factor risk and cybersecurity into their transformation plans at the beginning — especially those that entail digitizing processes or cloud computing. Leaders should also consider tax strategy as a driver of trust and inject tax strategy into business planning. 

Increased Pressure in Healthcare

The cost of treating patients is on the rise, and the healthcare industry is experiencing significant financial pressure. Several factors contribute to this trend, including high inflation, rising wages, and escalating costs, all of which are exacerbated by clinical workforce shortages. Health payers are in a constant negotiation battle with hospitals over pricing, while provider profit margins continue to erode. Moreover, health plans are grappling with the financial impact of higher median prices for new drugs and increasing prices for existing medications.

 

Inflation and Wage Pressures

Inflation has been a major driver of rising healthcare costs. As the cost of goods and services increases, so does the cost of medical supplies, equipment, and facilities. Additionally, wages in the healthcare sector have been rising, partly due to the need to attract and retain skilled workers amidst a shortage of clinical professionals. This wage inflation further contributes to the overall increase in healthcare costs.

 

Clinical Workforce Shortages

The shortage of clinical workforce adds another layer of complexity to the cost challenges faced by the healthcare industry. With fewer healthcare professionals available to meet the growing demand for services, providers are forced to offer higher wages and incentives to attract talent. This situation not only raises labor costs but also affects the operational efficiency of healthcare facilities, leading to higher overall treatment costs.

 

Eroding Provider Profit Margins

Healthcare providers are facing shrinking profit margins due to the combined effects of rising costs and pricing pressures from health payers. Hospitals and clinics are struggling to balance their budgets as they navigate the financial strain caused by increased operational expenses. This erosion of profit margins threatens the sustainability of healthcare providers and their ability to invest in new technologies and improvements.

 

Drug Price Increases

Health plans are also contending with the financial burden of rising drug prices. New drugs entering the market often come with high price tags, and existing drugs are seeing price hikes. This trend significantly impacts the cost of providing care, as medications represent a substantial portion of healthcare expenses. Health payers must manage these rising costs while ensuring that patients have access to necessary treatments.

 

Negotiations and Pricing Strategies

To cope with these financial pressures, health payers are engaging in more rigorous negotiations with hospitals and other healthcare providers. These negotiations aim to secure favorable pricing arrangements and control costs. However, this process can be contentious and complex, as both parties strive to maintain their financial viability in a challenging economic environment.

 

Conclusion

The healthcare industry is under immense financial pressure, driven by factors such as inflation, rising wages, workforce shortages, and increasing drug prices. These challenges are putting a strain on both health payers and providers, leading to a complex landscape of negotiations and cost management strategies. As we move through 2024, the need for innovative solutions and collaborative efforts to address these financial pressures will be more critical than ever.
