MANCHESTER, N.H., Dec, 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Geneia LLC (Geneia), an analytics and technology leader in transforming healthcare delivery, is calling on employers to reverse the dynamic of increasing health costs and declining employee health by holding health plans accountable for the return on investment on their healthcare spend.
In a thought leadership piece published today, Heather Lavoie, the company's chief strategy office, wrote, "At Geneia, we strongly believe there is a compelling opportunity for employers to improve the quality and cost of healthcare. It begins with timely data and actionable insights and employer willingness to use this information to hold health plans accountable."
She articulated eight questions the savviest employers are asking their health plans about reporting, including:
- How often is the data updated and how frequently do your employer clients access the information?
- How do you predict which employees are likely to get sick and how do you prevent them from developing chronic disease?
- How accurate are your estimates of specialty pharmacy costs and how do you impact employee site-of-service for specialty pharmacy?
