WEST HARTFORD, Conn., October 24, 2018 – SCIO Health Analytics, an EXL company, today announced the Top 5 most-read posts on its blog, SCIOKnow, for the third quarter of 2018. The blog provides actionable insights on how healthcare organizations (HCOs) can unleash the power of data to empower decision-makers to make the choices that drive measurable outcomes improvement.

In the posts below, SCIO’s data and analytics experts share their knowledge on a broad variety of topics, including: how life sciences companies can support their sales and marketing teams by leveraging data from a broad range of HCOs; real-world strategies for success in value-based care; how brokers can leverage advanced analytics to provide data-driven consulting to their employer clients; why providers need to analyze a broad array of data to develop a 360-degree view of patients; and what HCOs are doing today to prepare to manage additional risk.

1. Flipping the Switch: How Life Sciences Companies Can Help Providers See Care in a New Light: By feeding integrated and standardized data from disparate HCOs into next-generation predictive analytics, life sciences companies can develop insights that help providers do things differently. In this post, John Pagliuca, vice president, life sciences, discusses four ways that life sciences organizations can offer providers a variety of insights that they simply can’t glean from their own electronic health records (EHR) systems.

2. 6 Real World Value-Based Care Success Strategies:To ensure successful value-based care outcomes, Scripps Health Plan Services focuses on managing costs, utilization, access and quality of care. In this guest post, Linda Pantovic, Scripps’ director of compliance & risk adjustment, shares six principles the organization has followed to achieve favorable outcomes in value-based care.

3. Next Gen Behavioral Analytics: The How, The What, The Challenges: Employers of all kinds, particularly those who have a high percentage of employees with chronic conditions, often struggle to determine which health benefits will support their efforts to maintain a healthy workforce. Often, employers turn to their benefits brokers to guide them in the right direction. In this post, David Hom, chief evangelist, details what brokers can help employers accomplish through the use of next-generation behavioral analytics.

4. Answering All the Right Questions with All the Right Data: As HCOs assume more risk under value-based care models, it becomes critical to look beyond the present and understand a patient’s future clinical and financial risk. In this post, Hom and Kevin Keck, MD, chief medical officer, discuss how HCOs can take advantage of predictive and prescriptive analytics to deliver insight into the care improvement and cost reduction opportunities that will impact the future of patients’ health.

5. Population Risk is Coming Your Way: Are You Prepared?: Earlier this year, SCIO Health Analytics partnered with HealthLeaders Media to conduct a survey examining how HCOs are preparing for a future of managing additional risk. This post details some of the survey’s most striking results, including the revelation that just 14 percent of healthcare leaders surveyed said that they were “very prepared” to manage additional risk.
