Healthcare survey targets strategies to stratify high-risk, high-cost patients


In the face of value-based healthcare's impact on care coordination, healthcare organizations are invited to describe their approach to health risk stratification of high-risk, high-cost patients and health plan members in a new survey.

The survey, sponsored by the Healthcare Intelligence Network, will be open until September 30, 2014.

Respondents receive an executive summary of results from the survey, which is designed to collect metrics on tools, technologies, analytics, personnel, impacts and ROI of health risk stratification efforts.

"The identification and classification of high-risk, high-cost patients is a prerequisite to the launch of a population health management effort," said Melanie Matthews, HIN executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Targeting care management and health interventions to these vulnerable populations will enhance quality ratings and ultimate improve reimbursement in healthcare's value-focused environment."

HIN's 10 Questions on Stratifying High-Risk Patients Survey will assemble a comprehensive set of best practices and benchmarks on health risk stratification approaches and its impact on clinical, financial and operational metrics.
