Employers typically learn how they’re doing against competitors through survey data.

We’ve found this process is typically too high-level and quickly outdated. Further, the reliability and validity of the responses are only as good as how the questions are asked, and who answered them. There is a better way.

DirectPath is the only company providing year-round access to real health care plan and cost data for easy, customized, unbiased benchmarking. Through its award-winning and patented technology, The Lab®, clients have real-time access to in-depth plan and cost information, enabling comparisons by industry, geography, company size, plan and employee type. There are no time-consuming surveys to complete.

The benefit plan procurement process starts with determining strategy.

This involves defining the proposed plan designs, pricing models and request for proposal (RFP). Information is often pulled from several databases and, because the information is typically stored in a range of formats, additional effort is required to convert the information into a single format before moving forward.

With the traditional paper-based approach, there is little transparency during the bidding process–eliminating the potential to reduce benefits costs through competitive vendor bidding. It takes a significant amount of time and effort to gather the responses and consolidate them into a standard format for analysis. The lack of audit trail has led to compliance issues for some employers, and inhibits the ability to demonstrate visible realized savings.

Employers often find it challenging to determine how a vendor is performing against a service level agreement (SLA) and agreed-upon standard – the minimum target or threshold for a metric identified in the contract.

Vendors falling below that target may incur a penalty, but without transparency between the employer and the vendor, this could be missed. DirectPath’s vendor and contract management solutions automate the process of collecting vendor SLAs and calculate penalties for non-compliance.
