Using data analytics to deliver results

In order to effectively address population health issues, employers and health systems need a solid business case for workforce wellness that is supported by measurable results. In fact, data is the key to managing population health. The availability of data drives informed decision making, and this shared data provides knowledge and information that helps us understand what to do with different populations and where to direct our efforts.


The SHS Business Intelligence tool combines data from Health Risk Assessments (HRAs), biometric screenings, and medical claims into a visually depicted intelligence tool that enables you analyze the data in any way you want. The data shows you where your risks lie and with whom. It also shows where behavior change is needed to lower risk factors. The data looks at care gaps, which tend to be where and when standards of care are not followed.

As such, your Strategic Health coaches work directly with individuals on targeted interventions (based on these national standards of care) in order to make necessary behavior changes to reduce risk factors as well as lower future medical claims.

SHS mines claims data and analyzes it to find trends in utilization. Our predictive modeling software forecasts future costs and pinpoints where they began. We look for reductions in key risk factors and measure and monitor overall costs to give you a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI.)

80% of health systems will be using population health analytics by 2018 in transitioning to value-based care and caring for populations with similar diseases.
