Payer Provider Data Sharing – A New World?

In the world of healthcare data the relationship between payers and providers is going through a shift. Typically, they’ve been a bit cautious and not big on collaboration.

Though there are some ongoing challenges, there is good news. Congress is putting a focus on letting consumers control their own healthcare data and now payers have to share more data, including prior authorization data. The push for clear pricing and digital quality performance is showing a move towards more value-based contracts.
