Becoming certified by the Validation Institute requires studying the certification course curriculum and passing the Critical Outcomes Report Analysis test. Once conferred, Validation Institute Certification indicates an understanding of population health metrics, and an ability to assess the validity of reports and claims. It is with this in mind that Davis was invited by the CI Validation Institute to become certified.
NextLogical Benefit Strategies is a perennial innovator in the health insurance advisory industry having merged employee benefits, clinical and data analytics expertise to increase disease management engagements and achieve significant reductions in medical trend for employers. These innovations and outcomes resulted in Davis being named Broker of the Year nationally by his peers in Benefits Selling magazine in 2013, as well as, one of the most competent brokers in the mid-market in the book Cracking Health Costs by Tom Emerick and Al Lewis.
“The early detection of disease combined with patient support services such as disease management is essential to healthcare cost containment. Our clinicians use advanced data analytics tools to independently identify members who should be evaluated for participation and then ensure that the medical manager is supporting them. By receiving Certification by the Validation Institute we hope to lend additional credibility to our studies and our approach,” said Davis.
“As the healthcare industry evolves so that the achievement of cost savings replaces the appearance of cost savings as the key outcome, individuals who understand the difference will be highly valued in the marketplace. Additionally, sound assessment methodology is critical in building population health programs that will help those who are sick better manage their health and prevent those who are at-risk from developing costly chronic conditions,” said Sean Slovenski, CEO of Intel-GE Care Innovations.
