Key highlights from recent custom research projects by Everest Group

 

Case #1: One of the top 5 U.S. payers engaged Everest Group to benchmark its existing BPO vendor portfolio and contrast their solution offerings

Everest Group’s approach: Everest Group evaluated each of the existing vendors against the best-in-class service providers to evaluate the key offerings, price points, digital leverage, etc. We also looked at how the top payers in the market were sourcing similar pieces with these vendors and which pieces fall under lack of capability vs. negotiation arbitrage.

Everest Group assessed over 4000 hospital systems and developed a scoring model to rank them on their value-based care performance and technology enablement.

Client benefits: Everest Group helped the client’s sales people develop actionable insights for their pursuit strategy in the value-based care space.
