The HIMSS Medical Banking Project G7 Roundtable, a specialized think-tank of healthcare stakeholders - banks, consumers, employers, government, health plans, healthcare providers and health technology firms - is tasked with envisioning the healthcare financial network of the future.

Two new reports from the G7, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, are available on the MBProject website. They are:

"The Intersection Between Accountable Care Organizations & the Financial Network of the Future" explores the emergence of Accountable Care Organizations in healthcare and what impact this might have on the “Financial Network of the Future.”

"Exploring the Odyssey of Real Time Adjudication of Healthcare Claims" examines the evolution of RTA today and defines HIMSS MBProject’s potential role in moving the RTA dialogue forward. This paper follows on the foundation laid from the 2008 HIMSS white paper Real Time Adjudication of Healthcare Claims, by the HIMSS Financial Systems Task Force.
