The Healthcare Trends Institute, an educational platform for employers, consumers and other healthcare benefits stakeholders, has released a new whitepaper to provide insights into the latest trends among employers regarding private health exchange adoption.
The whitepaper, titled Private Exchanges: Benefits, Barriers, and Opportunities, provides an overview of what private exchanges are and how they work as well as key exchange trends among employers from the 2013 Healthcare Benefits Trends Benchmark Study. Including an infographic and an employer exchange checklist, it will help businesses of all sizes better understand how private exchanges, also known as “marketplaces,” can be implemented to help maximize benefits offerings while also controlling rising healthcare costs.

“As healthcare reform legislation continues to take effect, more employers are looking to private exchanges to help control unpredictable healthcare costs without reducing their benefits offerings,” said Tiffany Wirth, Executive Director, Healthcare Trends Institute. “However, there are still lots of questions and concerns, so our hope is that this whitepaper can help shed some light on the many benefits offered by private exchanges.”
Building on its mission to provide the latest healthcare benefits-related news and updates, the Healthcare Trends Institute is also sponsoring a free webcast “The Rise of HSAs: Past, Present, and Future Trends” on Wed., June 25 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
