The variety and velocity of digital health innovation is faster than ever before; this includes new offerings that focus on the self-funded employer market and a booming sector of direct-to-consumer health tech offerings. In spite of this booming market, point solutions alone cannot solve the big issues of mitigating cost trend or driving health optimization. Mercer’s 2018 National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans data shows us that employers are adapting their strategies in response to these market changes, but how can employers get ahead? Mercer experts discuss a new framework for evaluating the efficacy of digital health and share perspectives about how to weave these solutions into cohesive consumer-centric strategies.
