For all the gains in efficiency, health plans have made in recent years, there is one area where middling performance is largely assumed to be inevitable: the lengthy process to fulfill an Employer Group Benefits Response for Proposal (RFP).
The problem, of course, is that at the heart of the RFP process is an operational bottleneck that seems unavoidable. Even for a standard RFP, with no custom requirements, busy sales teams must request several rounds of access reports from busy network analysts to find the right product.
This back-and-forth not only adds weeks to the time it takes the team to respond to the RFP, but it also hinders the ability for both teams to complete other priorities. The current manual process keeps sales teams from pursuing additional opportunities. While analysts are delayed from working on complex analyses and other areas that require their time. As you can imagine, all of this puts a health plan’s chances of being successful at risk.
It’s a lengthy process we knew we’d never fix. So, we figured, why not get rid of it?
