A new KPMG study finds that healthcare providers, payers, and pharmaceutical firms view health IT as a crucial factor in the impending changes in healthcare. 92 percent of providers that deployment of health IT across the whole spectrum of healthcare was “very important” to develop a more sustainable business model. 27 percent of providers view their current business model as “unsustainable.”

Health insurer, PruHealth, has partnered with Mercer, a health, retirement, and investments consultancy, to launch the Britain’s Healthiest Company project. The initiative will be the first index of its kind to recognize corporate achievement in managing employee health and well-being. Britain’s Healthiest Company will survey employers and employees at organizations with more than 100 staff to measure and analyze current health issues affecting workers and businesses.

Prolor Biotech and Abiomed are two healthcare companies that investors should consider, according to market analysts who have just begun to rate their stocks. Prolor develops proprietary versions of already-approved therapeutic proteins. Abiomed provides medical devices to acute heart failure patients. The companies were singled out for their debt-to-cash ratios and their profit margins as well as their innovative products.
