Optum is an information and technology-enabled health services business with a mission to help make the health system work better for everyone. With more than 115,000 people worldwide, the company delivers intelligent, integrated solutions to modernize the health system and improve overall population health. To recognize this dedication to innovation, Everest Group named Optum to the Leader category in the 2016 “Healthcare Payer IT Services –Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix™ Assessment.”
For the research, Everest Group used a comprehensive evaluation framework that examined 22 service providers in the global health care IT services market and identified them as either Leaders, Major Contenders or Aspirants. Optum emerged as a Leader — a designation of the highest levels of delivery capability and market success, and the only health services company to achieve this distinction.
As payer organizations modernize and transform their business and IT, they can quickly become overwhelmed. Optum’s health care payer IT services help these organizations optimize core operations, enable integrated value-based care and deliver differentiated customer value.
The report cites the company’s health care domain expertise as a “distinct edge” in serving public and private health plans with end-to-end solutions. In fact, Optum serves only the health care market, and invests nearly $3 billion annually in technology and innovation.
Optum continues to provide IT innovations in the health care industry with an approach that encompasses its health care experience, business operations scale, commitment to innovation, established cross-system collaboration, and transformative partnerships. Congratulations on earning a Market Connections Top Innovator commendation.
