SCIOXpert™ is our advisory service that leverages SCIO’s deep industry domain knowledge, advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics capabilities, and subject matter expertise on patient-centric behavioral and commercial applications.

Advanced Analytics Methodologies and Models

At the core of SCIO’s advanced analytics capabilities, our professional services group uses three types of methodologies that result in innovative, actionable and valued commercial insights.

  • Descriptive Analytics: addresses the question, “What has happened?”
  • Predictive Analytics: addresses the question, “What could happen?”
  • Prescriptive Analytics: addresses the question, “What should we do?”

Our subject matter experts have also developed Patient Personas that deliver a clear understanding of a patient segment’s prospective risk in terms of the level of additional medication and medical services they will require as measured in dollars, as well as disease-specific insights on:

  • Appropriate treatment plans, including care gap identification and prioritization based on clinical and financial risk.
  • The impact of medical adverse events, including an estimate of increased utilization of services.
  • Patient adherence and outcomes.
  • Trend drivers, emerging risk, and medication compliance vs. non-compliance.
