Presentation combines insight from HealthEdge’s “State of the Payor” industry survey with a discussion on how to leverage modern technology to compete in the new healthcare economy

Burlington, Mass. – October 3, 2013 – HealthEdge®, provider of the only integrated financial, administrative and clinical platform for healthcare payors, today announced that Executive Vice President Ray Desrochers will present the findings from HealthEdge’s most recent “State of the Payor” industry survey at the 2013 Texas Association of Health Plans (TAHP) Managed Care Conference and Trade Show. The conference, which brings together a wide variety of health plans and other related healthcare entities that operate across the state of Texas, will take place October 13-16, 2013 at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio.

Desrochers’ session will examine the latest results from HealthEdge’s “State of the Payor” industry survey and provide insight into key challenges and issues facing today’s payors in the shifting healthcare marketplace. The session will also include a discussion on how payors can leverage modern technology to reduce costs, engage members and providers, support next-generation health care business models and achieve regulatory compliance.

“Despite significant interest in new business models, transparency, mobile solutions and direct-to-consumer offerings, many payors continue to struggle under the weight of manual processing, high administrative costs and aging legacy technology that simply cannot keep up with the unprecedented change and uncertainty that we are seeing in the market,” said Ray Desrochers, executive vice president at HealthEdge. “This session will provide TAHP attendees with actionable insight on how to establish and deliver on their organizations’ business and technology goals while ensuring that they are ready to compete in the new healthcare economy.”

Desrochers’ session will take place on Tuesday, October 15th at 11:10 a.m. in the Villa room (Ballroom Level) at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio.
