How Employers Can Leverage Data for Positive Impact

We'd like to extend a big thank you to our guest blog contributor - Higginbotham

In order to truly impact the health of the organization, measure program success, see a tangible return on investment and contain cost, it's essential to implement a health risk management program. The program should actively engage your employees, make them aware of their current health status through preventative testing and possible risks associated with unhealthy behaviors, provide education to promote behavioral change and offer the measurement of tangible results for both the employee and the employer. But where do you start?

Combatting the Crisis in Drug-Resistant Infections and Treatment

Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, MSN, CCM - Vice President, Clinical Operations, Advanced Plan for Health

A lot has happened since Alexander Fleming accidentally discovered Penicillin in 1928 after a chance exposure of staphylococcus to penicillin mold.  For his discovery, he won the Nobel Prize after penicillin was commercialized in 1945, used successfully for war wounds and surgery in World War II and hailed as the “miracle drug”. In his acceptance speech, Fleming admonished the world to beware that bacteria would become resistant in time.

Taking the final mile with Population Health data findings - Nurse Navigation is one avenue

More and more frequently, our current and prospective employer group clients will ask us what we see as the most effective avenues to support employees and members who have been identified through analytics for outreach and support.

There are many avenues that our clients are taking to get individuals the education and support they need. Nurse Navigation is one of the most effective programs that we’re partnering with our clients to launch and manage. We thought this would be a good topic to cover during National Nurses Week.

The Growing Need for Better Access to Behavioral Health Support

Mental and substance abuse disorders and their downstream impacts are becoming a growing concern for employers – with costs to employers estimated at $225.8 billion each year. Notably, the financial impact goes beyond absenteeism to include presenteeism as well. Presenteeism, or individuals working with untreated illnesses, is estimated to cost employers $1,601 per person each year according to the same Inc. Magazine article.

Many employers are actively looking for better ways to offer their employees support in this area –  as they do for overall wellness and chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Data: Your Secret Weapon

So, where are your hidden health-related cost centers? The same places they’ve always been: In plain sight. But for the lack of data transparency and integration of data tools and services, they remain elusive to spot. To uncover these cost centers, consider partnering with an analytics firm that not only can access data sets from everywhere patients access healthcare, but also combine them to create nuanced action lists.

How The New Broker Can Take The Lead With Predictive Modeling

Data analytics is the current and most effective means to achieving population health management, but let’s face it: To many employers, population health management is merely a health-benefits catchphrase, an empty expression that represents a goal but lacks the means to achieve it. However, in the right hands, data analysis is much more than that. Data analysis gives brokers the edge to fulfill population health management goals by providing common-sense human interactions to take action on the steps identified for plan performance.
