Analytics Led Approach

  • An advanced next-gen HCC Gaps in coding analytics solution was developed :
    • Leverages machine learning algorithms to predict and identify missing and suspected HCCs and ICDs at member level
    • Provides a detailed predictive score-based map of all potential coding gaps for a member in a calendar period
    • Enables effective coding corrections by focused targeting of provider for filling coding gaps and behavior modification

Business Impact

  • Creation of HCC/HHS-HCC output file with member level HCC/HHS-HCC codes in order to maximize capitated payments
