PRINCETON, N.J. – CitiusTech Healthcare Technology Pvt. Ltd., is a leading provider of healthcare technology services, solutions, and platforms. The company was recently mentioned in the 2023 Gartner “Quick Answer: U.S. Healthcare CIOs Use Price Transparency Data to Improve Business Outcomes” report authored by Connie Salgy, Sr. Director Analyst at Gartner. The report provides insights into how U.S. Healthcare CIOs may leverage price transparency data to improve business outcomes. 

According to the Gartner report, “Under the Transparency in Coverage (TiC) final rule and the No Surprise Act, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) require machine readable files (MRFs) to be published in a specific format. However, data quality is highly variable, making it difficult to deliver accurate data for actionable insights.”

Shyam Karunakaran, Senior Vice President - Health Plans, CitiusTech, said, “The healthcare industry is increasingly emphasizing the need for a financially sustainable ecosystem. CMS has introduced numerous initiatives that prioritize delivering value, with price transparency initiatives being particularly significant. These initiatives aim to provide greater clarity regarding the complex pricing data in healthcare, setting the stage for competitive disruptions in the industry. Through RealSight and by investing in data and technology, CitiusTech is enabling consumers and stakeholders to access insights and make informed decisions.”

The Gartner report also notes “Healthcare payer and provider CIOs that extract the data, stored in machine-readable files (MRFs) can use it to derive consumer-facing healthcare actionable insights for a competitive advantage — and strengthen their healthcare organization’s growth position.”

This is the second time this year that CitiusTech has been mentioned in a Gartner report. In February, CitiusTech was mentioned in the 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for U.S. Healthcare Payers’ Provider Network Management Applications.

CitiusTech’s payer technology business has gained significant momentum in recent times, with strong services and solutions in areas such as price transparency analytics, member experience, value-based programs, HEDIS / STARS optimization and quality & performance management.
