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.

6 Costly Healthcare Myths

The healthcare system can be a confusing place for someone who is well, let alone someone who is sick and in need of help. Oftentimes, health plan members do not know their benefits and can seek care in the wrong place; like the ER when the problem is not urgent, or outside their network, which means they may incur an expensive and unexpected bill. This confusion can cause delays in treatment and less than desirable outcomes; as well as an increase of cost to everyone involved--from the patient to the health plan itself.
