Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Decision Point Healthcare Solutions (Decision Point), an innovator in providing knowledge-based decision making systems to the health care industry, announced today that Healthfirst has selected Decision Point for its leading-edge pilot project to continually improve its Medicare members’ plan experience.
The program is focused on early detection of satisfaction risk, identification of member-specific drivers of satisfaction, retention risk, and member communication channel preferences. Healthfirst will use this information to more proactively target members with relevant, personalized communications to enhance each member’s experience with Healthfirst.
Decision Point’s solutions address one of the most pressing issues facing managed care plans today: how to truly engage members and providers to improve quality of care and enhance member satisfaction. Decision Point provides a unique and effective approach that leverages predictive analytics to enable health plans to better understand their members and providers, and deliver insights into the specific attributes that drive behavior.
Mr. Saeed Aminzadeh, Chief Executive Officer of Decision Point noted, "Healthfirst is at the leading edge of using technology to better serve its members. We are excited about putting the power of Decision Point to work for them."
Rebecca Schwietz, Vice President, Clinical Performance Management at Healthfirst said, “Decision Point’s unique technology and innovative approach to understanding, predicting and stratifying members and providers will enable us to focus our programs on individuals that need it the most.”
