2. Consumer experience. Understanding, addressing, and assuring that all consumer interactions and outcomes are easy, convenient, timely, streamlined, and cohesive so that health fits naturally into the “life flow” of every individual’s, family’s and community’s daily activities.
3. Delivery system transformation. Operationalizing and scaling coordination and delivery system transformation of medical and non-medical services via partnerships and collaborations between healthcare and community-based organizations to overcome barriers including social determinants of health to effect better outcomes.
4. Data and analytics. Leveraging advanced analytics and new sources of disparate, non-standard, unstructured, highly variable data (history, labs, Rx, sensors, mHealth, IoT, Socioeconomic, geographic, genomic, demographic, lifestyle behaviors) to improve health outcomes, reduce administrative burdens, and support transition from volume to value and facilitate individual/provider/payer effectiveness.
5. Interoperability/consumer data access. Integrating and improving the exchange of member, payer, patient, provider data, and workflows to bring value of aggregated data and systems (EHR’s, HIE’s, financial, admin, and clinical data, etc.) on a near real-time and cost-effective basis to all stakeholders equitably.

“We are seeing more change in the 2020 HCEG Top 10 than we have seen in recent years and for good reason. HCEG member organizations express that the demand for, and pace of change and innovation is accelerating as healthcare has moved to center stage in the national debate. It shouldn’t be surprising that costs and transparency are at the top of the list along with the consumer experience and delivery system transformation,” says Ferris W. Taylor, Executive Director of HCEG. “Data, analytics, technology, and interoperability are still ongoing challenges and opportunities. At the same time, executives need to be cautious, as individual health, consumer access, privacy, and security are on-going challenges that also need to remain as priorities.” CURRENT ISSUES IN THE HEALTHCARE FIELD TODAY
