Information for this report is compiled from vendor briefings, conference presentations, IDC Health Insights' research, and client and payer interviews.

This IDC Health Insights report enables payer and provider decision makers to understand the many business, regulatory, and IT issues that exist in a postreform environment in terms of thinking outside the box to develop collaborative relationships. Leaders in both payer and provider constituencies need to think about new, mutually beneficial environments to define a clear vision for consumer and patient care coordination and shared reimbursements.
"Today's healthcare industry demands out-of-the-box thinking and the establishment of new collaborative relationships between payers and providers that can create an environment to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of care delivery. This report examines the business, regulatory, and IT considerations payer leaders need to consider for approaching and negotiating with providers in terms of new reimbursement and care delivery models." — Deanne Primozic Kasim, research director, Payer Health IT Strategies
