The big push in 2016 will be for more carriers to embrace integrated data solutions. But first, carriers will need to reconsider the traditional model of analysts deciphering data. “According to a survey of IT leaders by MeriTalk, poor data integration is responsible for $342 billion in lost benefits every year as government health and human services agencies struggle to manage different datasets.”
