SEATTLE, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Milliman, Inc., one of the premier global consulting and actuarial firms, today announced that Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island (Neighborhood) has implemented Milliman MedInsight® as its data warehousing analytics platform.  Neighborhood, a Medicaid health plan based in Providence, will use MedInsight to help with a broad array of data analyses and reporting initiatives. MedInsight was selected in the Spring of 2010, and the company has completed implementation of the system, which is now in use.

"We chose MedInsight because of its robust functionality and strong analytic reporting capabilities," says Nancy Coburn, COO of Neighborhood.  "As a health plan, we deal with a significant amount of data – claims, eligibility, and pharmacy to name a few.  It is critical for us to leverage that data into useful information to help us manage our business and make informed decisions.  We felt MedInsight would enable us to do that successfully."  Coburn added, "We also felt strongly about choosing a Milliman solution because of its reputation, experience and healthcare expertise."

Neighborhood will utilize MedInsight to generate a wide variety of analyses for its internal operations, as well as to support State of Rhode Island reporting requirements. "It was clear to us that MedInsight had much more to offer than basic cost and utilization reporting," says T. Clark Phillip, Neighborhood's CFO. "It is an enterprise system that supports a number of our departments, and will also help us with specific initiatives directed at improving the health of our members."

"We are delighted that Neighborhood has selected MedInsight to assist with its key data analytics and reporting," says Todd Fessler, MedInsight Sales & Marketing Director. "MedInsight has been selected by a number of Medicaid health plans over the past ten years. Like our existing Medicaid clients, Neighborhood felt that MedInsight was a very good match for their analytical reporting needs."
