As a ranked leader in the Everest Group report, NTT DATA was recognized for its significant number of healthcare business process automation clients and its dominant shares in all buyer segments due to the company’s large-scale operations and distributed buyer portfolio. NTT DATA was also identified as one of the top four service providers across the payer and provider spectrum of healthcare business process automation space. The report analyzed 14 providers across a spectrum of automation solutions, which include robotic desktop automation (RDA), RPA, narrow artificial intelligence (AI) and general AI.
“In addition to efficiency, productivity and accuracy issues, healthcare organizations are also struggling with a multitude of other challenges, such as the shift toward value-based care, ballooning costs, regulatory changes and rising consumerism. Together, all these negatively impact healthcare enterprises’ financial performance as well as their ability to serve their members and patients in an effective and efficient manner. Technology, especially automation, is a solution that can not only provide quicker ROI, but help payers and providers solve for some of the above-mentioned challenges,” said Manu Aggarwal, practice director, Everest Group. “NTT DATA’s automation-first and platform-agnostic approach, when coupled with significant scale across both payer and provider landscapes, helps its position to solve for these challenges, especially in traditional, manual and error-prone processes such as claims management, revenue cycle management (RCM) and network management.”
