Payers in value-based contracts are expected to move beyond their traditional role as insurance purveyors and assume the broader responsibility of improving outcomes and care coordination. Claims data is not a sufficient foundation for successfully fulfilling this role. By leveraging the valuable insights and real-time availability that clinical data offers, plans can carry out the level of proactive outreach and crises prevention that value-based care management demands.
AI is no replacement for human judgement but it can go a long way towards simplifying and streamlining data management and analysis. AI-enabled chart review helps providers and plans that coordinate care for complex populations work smarter, not harder, by shifting the focus from volume of charts targeted to precision targeting of charts.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) initiated the Hierarchical Condition Category (HCC) model in 2004 to adjust payments to Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs). The model has been more prevalent in recent years as HCCs are becoming more widely recognized as one of value-based programs' most important components. This heightened visibility is due in large part to the growth and success of Medicare Advantage.
