What's all the Fuss About Avoiding Flu Shots?

With this season’s flu season starting, we’re asked more and more by clients why there is so much resistance to getting the flu shot, and how they can counter the objections.

Coming out of the record-breaking flu season of 2017, we know this is important and very serious to address. The CDC said 2017's Influenza Death Toll Was the Highest in 40 Years! “The flu, as well as flu-related complications, was responsible for 80,000 U.S. deaths last winter. That’s the highest flu-related death toll in the U.S. four decades.” Of the estimated 80,000 who died of flu and its complications, 180 were children – and “approximately 80 percent of those deaths occurred in children who had not received a flu vaccination.”

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.

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.

Healthcare Moves into the 21st Century

Innovation is defined as a new idea, more effective device or process. Healthcare is widely considered one of the least innovative business sectors by the tech industry and yet, according to a recent survey by Ketchum, consumers value innovation in healthcare above innovation in all other industries. Considering that many doctors still fax prescriptions to pharmacies to be filled, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this group is slow to adopt technological advances. Things are changing though.
