"This is a very exciting partnership," says Sue Lewis, Chief Product and Strategy Officer for ConsumerMedical. "It is the powerful blend of sophisticated data and analytics, and technology with personalized, high-touch support and coaching. When the member calls in, our support specialist can serve as a trusted guide, while matching the participant's needs using the most current, data-driven review of physicians' performance in the country."
MD Insider's proprietary algorithm looks at data points such as procedure volume, readmission rates, and complication rates to develop a total picture of physician quality. If the employer or health plan uses a Centers of Excellence or High Performance Network strategy, ConsumerMedical can also recommend physicians practicing within those quality strategies.
"We're excited our data and algorithms will be able to help ConsumerMedical's 2 million members get better care," says David Norris, CEO of MD Insider.
