Using Actionable Analytics to Drive Impactful Payer-Provider Collaboration

  • October 27, 2017
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Online

Payers and providers struggle to share meaningful and impactful information to enable better collaboration. Often, information is siloed, difficult to share, and not delivered in a way that a provider can act on.

As a result, payers and providers are missing out on opportunities to improve care, reduce costs and maximize collaboration to deliver a better experience for their members/patients. Analytics play a critical role in helping to not only remove barriers to data, but also making it actionable to improve performance, which in turn enhances member/patient engagement.

Analytics provide actionable insights around targeted interventions for members/patients as well as the ability to monitor and measure improvement over time to enhance the overall performance of providers.

What attendees will learn:

  • Examples of how analytics enable data transparency to help payers and providers collaborate more effectively
  • The role of healthcare analytics as the interface between the payer and the provider, delivering transparency to create a collaborative environment between all stakeholders
  • Understand that historically, past performance of physicians is indicative of future behavior
  • How to leverage data around provider performance across cost, utilization, quality, prevention, and pharmacy to evaluate and drive quality initiatives
  • Understand how analytics plays a critical role in developing the “Sole Source of Truth” for a health plan or at-risk provider to access and share aggregated data across the continuum of care

Who should attend: All leaders and their teams that are responsible for provider network relations, quality initiatives, cost & utilization, etc. Functional areas include Chief Medical Officer, Medical Management, Provider Relations, Population Health, Health Analytics, Finance.
