Gettysburg, Pa. (January 20, 2019) – OPEN MINDS has released The OPEN MINDS 2019 Market Intelligence Chart Book, a collection of statistics on the health and human service market specifically designed as a reference guide for provider organization executive teams. This chart book was released as part of the January 2019 edition of the OPEN MINDS management newsletter, The Market Intelligence Edition: The Market Knowledge You Need To Position Your Organization To Succeed. This issue is focused on why market intelligence matters, how executive teams can use market intelligence to position their organizations in a competitive market, and which components of market intelligence matter when building a successful strategy for the year ahead.

“Market intelligence is important because most provider organizations—at least those with limited budgets and resources—are operating in a changing market. There is new competition from non-traditional organizations, new reimbursement models, and new technologies. Not to mention changing consumer preferences, uncertainty at the federal level, and changes to funding. To build a sustainable strategy for the future, executive teams need a complete picture of the market in which they are operating. This facilitates creating a strategic plan based on the right assumptions about the environment,” said Athena Mandros, Market Intelligence Director, OPEN MINDS. “In this issue of the OPEN MINDS Management Newsletter, we kicked off the new year with a deep dive into the market intelligence that matters for specialty provider organizations in the year ahead.”

The OPEN MINDS 2019 Market Intelligence Chart Book includes the following key statistics:

  • 10 Largest Insurers In U.S. By Percent Of Population – All Payers
  • States With The Highest Percentage Of The Population In Medicaid
  • States With The Highest Percentage Of The Population Who Are Dual Eligibles
  • 10 States With The Highest Percentage Of The Medicaid Population In Managed Care
  • 10 States With The Most Psychiatric Beds Per 100,000 Population
  • 10 States With The Most Psychiatrists Per 100,000 Population
  • States With Health Homes In Order Of Percent Of Medicaid Enrollment
  • State Medicaid ACO Programs Ranked By Percent Of Medicaid Enrollment
  • 10 Top Performing Medicare Shared Savings ACOs, 2016

The Market Intelligence edition of the OPEN MINDS Management Newsletter also includes an examination of why market intelligence is so vital to building a sustainable strategy for organizations operating in the health and human service market from Ms. Mandros in her article, Why You Need (Or At Least Shouldn’t Ignore) Market Intelligence. The issue also includes a comprehensive overview of the major market trends we saw in 2018 and an outlook on their implications for 2019 from Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer of OPEN MINDS. In her article, The 2019 Health & Human Service Landscape: 2018 Legacy Sets Stage For Opportunities & Challenges, she offers her perspective on the three market developments that will have the most pronounced effect on strategy in the year ahead. Adding to that conversation, we polled OPEN MINDS’ team of industry experts on what they see as the biggest challenges facing provider organizations in the year ahead. They share their experience and perspectives in The Three Trends That Are “Top Of Mind” In 2019 For The OPEN MINDS Team and The Perennial Challenge For The New Year: Strategic Execution.
