Both state government agencies and private sector health plans face many challenges related to managing, designing, and administering complex health care programs.
Oversight agencies must adopt strategies to ensure that eligible patients receive appropriate care and healthcare providers deliver quality and compliant services. From a financial and cost containment perspective, they must make certain that complex financial reporting requirements are met and must fully demonstrate the cost-benefit of delivered services. This is a daunting task in an era where healthcare costs are quickly escalating, the number of consumers needing care is increasing, and a high level of technical expertise is essential to maintain and track the required financial and analytical information. Also, in the forefront, are consumers and their families who are calling for more empowerment in decision-making as community-based care is being emphasized.
