- Influence on Lifestyle Change Does Have an Impact on Outcomes
Once populations are targeted for support and intervention via our Poindexter advanced and predictive analytics (via current state and predicted risk factors), we’ve found that one of the most effective ways to support targeted employees and members is through live or telephonic nurse influence and intervention.
Nurses are able to deliver individuals the education and support they need to make important lifestyle and preventative care changes. This is one of the most effective programs that we’ve seen in delivering needed outcomes.

- Analytics, Group Benefits Design and The Battle Against Addiction
Like the war general, the best benefits brokers know that implementing a good benefits plan (or war plan) requires a mixture of science, art, technology and even psychology. When it comes to preempting costly diseases and health plan pitfalls, anticipation and an outside-of-the-box mentality is everything. To have a comprehensive understanding on how individuals function and behave within the health plan design is to be a step ahead of the curve.
- Three of the Costliest Health Conditions Ravaging Your Health Plan, and Steps for Prevention
High-cost claimants are only a part of the equation. There is a secondary subset of the insured population who are at-risk of entering the 5-7% of highest cost claimants that predictive modeling can uncover and help address. Not all predictive modeling engines have the capability to identify this subset of the employee population, but with Advanced Plan for Health’s Poindexter’s predictive modeling capabilities, determining the likelihood of an occurrence of coronary events, neurological events, orthopedic events and chronic kidney disease is made easy. Once interventions are made to improve the health of at-risk patients, the analytics system can retrospectively report actual cost versus the original predictive model to measure the positive health and financial effects the interventions created. Without the predictive-modelling enabled ability to identify those at-risk and intervene with targeted prevention strategies, health plan optimization will always be an uphill battle.
- Rising Costs Call for New Insightful Tools for Population Health Management
What does it look like to have true insight into a certain population’s health? The distinction between the two types of insight – technology-derived data sets and human expertise – is clear, both types are key to accurately assessing and improving the health of a population. It is important to understand the distinction and the application of each type of insight.
- 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.
