One more field can make a difference: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

We’re used to looking at a lot of healthcare metrics – utilization, costs, outcomes.  Even just a little more data can tell us a lot more about what’s really happening.

 

Check out how a few Plan Sponsors were able to surface measurable differences within their populations, by adding just a little more data into their analytics.

 

Measuring these differences allows us to take what we anecdotally see or suspect, and support it with facts.

Collegaues focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) agendas are wonderful partners. Share these insights with them.  The numbers give your organization a brilliant set of facts to help drive decisions aligned to company goals.

We’d love to help you surface these insights at your organization.  Just ask and we can share more about the possibilities.

 


 

Join the movement.  We’ll help you get started on measuring how healthcare needs and patterns change across different subpopulations at your organization.

Predictive Analytics: Drive Affordability and Better Health

Predictive models are an amazingly powerful use of data. And we have so many new reasons to use these advanced approaches to offset rising costs of care and challenging health conditions: deferred care, the increased need for mental health care, and virtual care adoption are disrupting historical patterns. How do predictive models work? Where is it best to consider using predictive analytics? What should you be doing with the results?

Watch this webinar to learn about how predictive analytics can fit into an overall analytic strategy. Invest in capabilities that allow you to act upon results, instead of sitting in reports in your inbox. Predictive analytics, when put to purpose, can be an instrumental part of a broader strategy to drive down costs and improve health. Make sure you have the big picture so you get the most from these investments.

We’ll share:

  • A framework to use to help discern where and how predictive capabilities are highly useful
  • Insights into how you can couple predictive capabilities and leading indicators
  • Approaches other health insurance providers are taking to act upon what their data is telling them
