The Heathcare Payor BPO Landscape in 2011: Will Reform Shatter a Complacent Industry?
This industry analysis report, co-authored with HfS, examines the key business challenges faced by the global pharmaceuticals industry and the resulting impact of outsourcing within this segment. This industry has traditionally been the main support function for the healthcare system by innovating, marketing and supplying drugs. However, over the past few years, with increasing costs for research and development and marketing services, major pharmaceutical companies have turned towards external partners to help them design better drugs, control expenditures, and reduce capital investment.

This report, co-authored with HfS Research, explores the heavily regulated healthcare payor industry which is in the midst of a continuous flux of its commercial and consumer businesses. Rapid industry developments in the global healthcare industry during the past two years have been a pre-cursor to the advent of new technology and reforms in the industry along with an increase in the amount of outsourcing. There is a dire need to upgrade policies, execution and technology across healthcare systems across the globe. The major healthcare payors currently have a limited experience in labour-arbitrage based outsourcing. The future for the industry requires these payors to increasingly leverage the capabilities of their existing service providers to ensure better quality and win new market share.
