BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Health Solutions (DSTHS), a leading provider of technology solutions and services to health plans, integrated delivery systems, and health care providers, today announced that 12 leading healthcare organizations have selected its CareAnalyzer® application as their solution of choice for meeting current and future population health management and risk adjustment needs.
Combined with its RiskAnalyzer™ components, the CareAnalyzer application provides a predictive modeling tool that encapsulates the insight, flexibility, and stability that organizations seek in today's competitive and evolving marketplace.
CareAnalyzer combines elements of patient risk, interventional care opportunities, and provider performance to meet operational and regulatory reporting requirements, such as NCQA HEDIS certification. One of the cornerstones of CareAnalyzer is The Johns Hopkins ACG® (Adjusted Clinical Groups) System, a predictive model based on a multi-morbidity framework that is clinically logical, easy to use, and applicable to both clinical and financial managers.
"We've responded to the healthcare industry's need for integrated business intelligence that enables our clients to take a proactive approach to population health management, provider network strategy, and comprehensive risk adjustment," said Teri Mullaney, Chief Strategy Officer for DST Health Solutions. "Customer response and rapid rate of adoption demonstrates that CareAnalyzer is a vital component of our clients' strategy as they move towards Health Insurance Marketplace participation."
Among the new users of CareAnalyzer is the Community Health Network of Connecticut, Inc. (CHNCT), a not-for-profit health plan committed to the oversight and improvement of Medicaid managed care in Connecticut.
"CareAnalyzer is an extremely intuitive, flexible product," according to Mary Ann Cyr, VP of Health Services for CHNCT. "We've been able to easily hone in on the things that are relevant to our population and identify care opportunities more quickly and efficiently. The DSTHS team has been great to work with, taking a 'solutions' approach to every need we've brought to the table."
