Targeting Doctor Shopping, Prescription Abuse With Analytics: Population Health Lessons from the Front Lines

In recent years insurers and brokers have had to adapt to rising healthcare costs without much say in the matter. This is in part because brokers and employee benefit managers often have too much on their plates to sleuth out and address the costliest “blind spots” in health coverage. This has left many struggling to find a way to remain competitive in an increasingly technology-driven industry.

Employers need an ombudsman, a consultant with the know-how, resources and technological tools, including predictive analytics, to expertly navigate and take advantage of the current healthcare system.

Wellness: Better Data, Better Buy-in, Better Savings

Population health has many definitions which are often pigeonholed to fit a specific market or agenda. Its end goal, however, is unequivocal: to manage the health of a given patient population to improve outcomes and keep costs in check. And without recent advancements in health technology, data aggregation and data analysis, case managers, data scientists and benefits managers alike would not have the tools and actionable intelligence necessary to make lasting improvements to the populations they manage. Wellness programs would not improve a health plan or reduce costs as effectively if case managers were missing crucial data sets of the population.
