The Disease Incidence Model® predicts and benchmarks the incidence of disease in a population. Based on any age/sex distribution, its reports show:
- Which diseases are likely to be most prevalent and most costly for this patient population;
What's unusual in expected disease incidence and costs for this population; and
Whether costs for each disease are being driven by high-cost individual cases or high incidence.
and their client companies use this information to:
Evaluate Health Plans. Evaluate bids from competing Health Plans based on their track record with this group's key diseases;
Negotiate Premiums. Negotiate premiums based on an employer's own disease burden;
Prioritize Medical Management. Prioritize and direct disease management and case management efforts;
Focus Medical Resources. Identify differences in employee medical needs in various locations and develop programs and cost-management strategies for each area;
Reassess Employee Needs. Quickly reassess employee health needs following a merger, acquisition, or divestiture;
Anticipate Cost Problems. Identify where an employer's health benefit costs may be especially vulnerable to costly new drugs and therapies;
Access Medical Costs. Manage the cost spiral in indemnity or self-funded plans caused when healthier employees choose HMO or PPO options;
Commit to Quality. Compare actual to expected costs for each disease and establish genuine accountability to improve quality of care.
