An estimated 80% of health care data is unstructured and the number data sources is growing at a rapid pace. In an ever-changing health care industry, innovative use of information assets is essential for payers to differentiate themselves from the competition and demonstrate value to their plan sponsors.

Today’s payers are continually looking for new ways to mitigate cost increases and improve the health of their members. To optimize plan performance, they need strategic insights to gain control over cost drivers, implement new operational models and pinpoint opportunities that can make the biggest impact on quality and outcomes.

In this session, HDMS and Meritain Health, a leading national third-party administrator (TPA) will discuss common challenges payers face. Through a series of demonstrations, we will share best practices and show how to leverage the power of data to create high-value, actionable information that can be shared within the organization and with plan sponsors.

  • Use information-driven insights to guide business transformation and clinical innovation

Learn how this leading TPA is leveraging actionable analytic intelligence to provide their plan sponsors timely information to inform decisions.
