Numbers talk. When we take time to understand nuanced needs of communities and identify measured differences, we can have a more interesting and actionable conversation. The numbers let us think differently and specifically – design strategies and plans that improve health and drive down costs. Create a new dialogue with your plan sponsors and bring your relationships to a new level.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) context and metrics give us a new way to think about plan performance and optimize. So, what do we measure? Come and learn ways health data can support a measured approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We’ll cover:

  • Analytic areas and approaches you can apply to start a DEI-centric conversation
  • Examples of traditional analytics adapted for DEI
  • Employer data that can really expand DEI insight-potential
  • Ways we see analytics-based collaborations turning heads in DEI conversations
