Employer Health Plans and Data Analytics: A New Total Organizational Approach for Advanced Business Management and Cost Containment

It is the era of Big Data, advanced risk analytics, and structural changes to healthcare that begin but don’t end with the Affordable Care Act: the volume of employee health information now available to plan sponsors continues to increase along with the opportunity cost of failing to utilize all of this data effectively. This presentation will address the very cutting edge of information analytics and data-driven strategies for financial as well as non-financial stakeholders regarding the health and health costs of their employee populations. This seminar will address:

  • Who owns your health plan data, what data is available and why it matters
  • Does the right hand know what the left hand is doing? How organizations have historically created internal silos of data and how good decisions on a departmental basis may be bad decisions on an organizational basis
  • What is data aggregation and what new opportunities does it offer for enhanced business management and cost efficiencies
  • The leading edge applications for the available data and how to improve decision-making and the bottom line
  • Why companies are embracing a total cost approach across multiple areas of risk exposure on a company-wide basis, with quantifiable advantages not only for employee medical plans but disability and workers’ compensation spend as well

Annual Review – Preparing for 2016

2015 was another notable year for Employee Benefits and Compliance:

  • Large employers (100 or more full-time plus full-time equivalent employees) became subject to the shared responsibility provisions of the Affordable Care Act (“Pay-or-Play”)
  • Some variable hour employees are in their first “stability” period
  • The Supreme Court issued rulings on the availability of premium subsidies through federally run health care exchanges and whether states could impose restrictions on same sex marriages
  • Employer reporting of health care offers and coverage are required for 2015
  • Medium sized employers (50 to 99 full-time plus full-time equivalent employees) will be subject to “Pay-or-Play” in 2016
