As we enter the next phase of the healthcare reform process with a possible Senate vote on the AHCA bill next week, there is much to contemplate regarding the ins and outs of healthcare policy and the impact on consultants and their clients. Consultants’ messaging has been clear throughout this regulatory blitz – that regardless of ACA and AHCA outcomes, clients need to build a strong foundation based on creating a patient-centric environment with reduced costs, and data-driven decisions to improve outcomes in a changing eco-system in which new technologies (digital/AI/analytics) and new partners (providers/payers/new market entrants) must be embraced.   If this is done, competitive advantage can be gained and organizations will be well positioned to deal with any regulatory changes.  Unfortunately, with tight budgets, limited technology infrastructures, and workforce shortages, for many but the largest healthcare organizations, this is an uphill battle.  However, there may be a new savior on the horizon. According to a new report from Accenture entitled: “Artificial Intelligence: Healthcare’s New Nervous System,” AI may help to position clients for this competitive battle and make them well-poised to take on future regulatory challenges.
