A Population Health Analyst wants to bring insight into ways to improve her ACO’s performance to her system's strategic planning session, so she turns to Touchstone. The system recommends that there is opportunity to reduce inpatient utilization in the diabetic population attributed to their Medicare MSSP contract. After moving through the prioritize and explore tabs the analyst learns that the inpatient utilization is being driven by patients attributed to five primary care providers with 80% lower primary care visit utilization than the risk-adjusted benchmark. The analyst recommends reaching out to those patients and scheduling them for wellness visits.
A Health Plan Analyst, while looking for opportunities to improve benefit design, is directed to an orthopedics doctor who performs knee replacements at 20% lower cost than benchmark.with a 15% better than benchmark readmission rate. The following year, they augment their benefit design to drive more volume to this high performing doctor.
