In our always-on, always-connected world, healthcare consumers expect instant access to customer service, not just from 9 AM to 5 PM. It’s often no longer good enough for health plans to staff call centers during standard business hours. Members today typically want to be able to log in and help themselves to the answers they need from self-service channels whenever they want — and they want the experience to be highly personal. One contact center benchmark study (see next page) revealed self-service channels can be a win-win for both businesses and consumers.1 When done well, self-service solutions can help businesses improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs. And consumers appreciate the convenience of getting answers quickly and efficiently.

Chronic disease is a major expense for America’s healthcare system. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 90 percent of the $3.3 trillion in U.S. healthcare spend is for chronic diseases. If appropriate steps aren’t taken to improve both prevention and treatment of such diseases, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease predicts that the projected total cost of chronic disease in America could tip the scales at $42 trillion by 2030. The most expensive conditions in terms of direct healthcare costs are diabetes, Alzheimer’s and osteoarthritis, and the three most common chronic conditions are hypertension, dyslipidemia and osteoarthritis.

Value-based care is the predominant model for enabling the healthcare industry to control costs and deliver better information to consumers. The basic idea is that reimbursements are based on the quality of the outcome of a procedure, episode of care, use of a device or therapy. Under this model, life sciences companies are rewarded for improving health outcomes and/or reducing the costs to achieve those outcomes. It requires life sciences companies to rethink many of their processes, from R&D through the commercial phase. Navigating those momentous shifts requires that life sciences companies embrace a range of digital technologies which will enable a holistic approach to value-based care. This white paper will examine the drive for value-based care, its impact on life sciences companies and how technology platforms can address the challenges the industry is facing.

This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.
