New decision support analytics models for healthcare are revolutionizing accuracy, depth and the personalization of information. These innovative models can: project people’s lifetime healthcare costs; select the optimal healthcare plans for their personalized care needs; and validate if wellness programs are providing good value and improving health. As healthcare budget pressures continue to grow, employers will increasingly want validations that their healthcare plan designs and wellness initiatives are improving the health outcomes of participants and controlling costs.
Healthcare cost projections and healthcare plan recommendations can be more accurately predicted when an individual’s underlying health status and claims history is known and integrated into future projections. A person’s claims history alone is an imperfect predictor of future healthcare costs because of the imperfect choices people make when dealing with personal health and well-being issues. There can be significant gaps between the care that was received versus the care that was truly needed.
Having an improved understanding of a person’s underlying state-of-health is essential because health status is known to fluctuate and change over time and can do so without medical claims occurring. DZee correlates and maps an individual’s health profile with population health data. In turn, this allows for the further distinguishing and personalizing of a health profile, and to be able to model how health will evolve over short, mid and long-term time periods. This knowledge will improve the understanding of one’s health status, promote better plan selection and care decisions, and validate that health improvements and cost savings are occurring.
