CCHP will benefit from DST Health Solutions' ICM suite, which provides insight to properly manage populations, effectively utilizes benefits and provide education for optimal self-management. The cornerstones of the ICM Suite are DSTHS CareAnalyzer® for member identification and CareConnectTM for care management, which has the ability to be integrated with any core claims administration platform, including DST platforms. The ICM Suite leverages The Johns Hopkins ACG® System predictive model, which identifies members with the greatest opportunity to improve health outcomes and identifies gaps in care. In addition, the DST Health Solutions approach offers rich analytics and decision support to help users meet the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set and Five-Star quality rating requirements.

"CCHP has to be an efficient plan to serve the needs of our community," said Brenda Yee, CEO of CCHP. "We needed to work with a health plan systems provider that could help keep administrative costs low while supporting our need to meet new market requirements, such as the Nurse Advice Line, and enhancing data integration throughout our unique system. DST Health Solutions was able to deliver an affordable, industry-leading set of solutions in an incredibly short amount of time."

"We are pleased to be able to fill CCHP's immediate need for a cost effective and functionality-rich health plan administration platform that enables the real-time integration of care management," said Steve Sabino, president of DST Health Solutions. "This relationship further demonstrates our commitment to flexible, agile and integrated solutions that can be implemented quickly and efficiently."
