Milliman announces solutions for State All Payer Claims Database Technology and expertise, combined with new Program Director, make Milliman an attractive option for states looking to implement All Payer Claims Database initiatives
SEATTLE, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Milliman, Inc., one of the premier global consulting and actuarial firms, today announced the availability of its MedInsight technology and services solutions tailored for State All Payer Claims Database Programs. As states continue to implement these important healthcare initiatives, MedInsight solutions can be leveraged for successful roll-out and ongoing operations.
In order to further support this solution, the MedInsight team recently hired an experienced operations and thought leader. Alan Prysunka, who was Executive Director for the State of Maine's All Payer Claims Database initiative, has joined Milliman as its Director of All Payer Claims Database Programs. Prysunka led Maine's efforts in creating and administering the nation's first all payer claims database and is considered one of the industry's top experts. He was also board chairman for the National Association of Health Data Organizations from 2008 to 2012. He'll be tasked with helping Milliman expand the MedInsight APCD offering throughout the country.
"We are thrilled to have Al Prysunka join our team," said Rich Moyer, Milliman Principal and MedInsight Product Manager. "He has real expertise in the All Payer Claims Database market having helped launch one of the country's first APCDs 10 years ago." Prysunka will be involved in many aspects of Milliman's efforts related to this emerging market, including business development, program design, implementation and account management."
Milliman is already active in this market segment. In January 2011, the State of Oregon selected Milliman's MedInsight solution for its All Payer Claims Database initiative. Several regional health coalitions – which have goals similar to APCDs – are also relying upon Milliman for data integration and quality reporting including the Puget Sound Health Alliance, the Oregon Healthcare Quality Corporation and the Midwest Health Initiative.
All Payer Claims Database projects require a combination of data management skill, technology, analytics and domain expertise. Milliman's ability to successfully integrate data from multiple sources makes the use of its MedInsight analytic software platform a powerful tool for states. And with the addition of Prysunka, Milliman is now in a strong position to uniquely serve this market.
MedInsight is the popular analytic platform that is used by over 130 health plans, employers, at-risk providers, state governments and third party administrators. Consistently recognized for its superior data integration and warehousing capabilities, MedInsight has been enhanced with a variety of new functionality that is making it easier for clients to analyze data in the new era of healthcare reform.
