New Edge Server Solution From DST Helps Health Plans Comply With Affordable Care Act Requirements Hosted Solution Includes Tools, Services, and Analytics To Help Plans Provide More Accurate Data
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Health Solutions, LLC, a leading provider of technology solutions and services to health plans, integrated delivery systems, and health care providers, today announced the release of its Edge Server Solution to support Qualified Health Plans participating in the State and Federal Marketplaces.
Specifically designed to store and provide Health and Human Services (HHS) access to masked enrollee, medical, and pharmacy claims data, the Edge Server Solution provides plans with a hosted solution that enables compliance with Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements.
The new Edge Server Solution will be offered as part of DST Health Solutions' Marketplace Elements portfolio.
According to Teri Mullaney, Chief Strategy Officer for DST Health Solutions, the Edge Server Solution includes error correction services and analytics that go beyond just providing technology to support HHS reporting.
"DST has held a leadership role in the support of hundreds of government-sponsored health plans for decades," says Mullaney, "and we recognize the importance of accurately measuring and managing risk, especially with regard to this population. Our integrated platform has been built to give health plans the ability to provide more accurate enrollee, medical, and pharmacy claims data for the ACA Risk Adjustment and Reinsurance programs."
DST manages and facilitates the use of the edge server in accordance with the latest government mandates, including data security, system back-up, and disaster recovery protocols. It also assists in the evaluation and risk management associated with new members through the use of its advanced analytics tool, RiskAnalyzer.
"I believe what sets the Edge Server Solution apart is DST's holistic approach to risk management," says Tom Scully, Senior Counsel, Alston & Bird, LLP, CMS Administrator (2001-2003). "Given the variety of unknown factors surrounding the population receiving coverage via Marketplaces, it is important to select a solution that provides a high level of support and valuable insight into the risk profile of your individual and small-group members in this evolving market."
