John Criswell, Chief Executive Officer at Pulse8, will discuss why Risk Adjustment analytics are not reciprocal between HIX and Medicare Advantage at the RISE Revenue Management for HIX Plans on December 1st at 9:45am

John Criswell will be presenting as a Gold Sponsor at the Revenue Management for HIX Plans conference organized by Healthcare Education Associates and RISE, in San Diego, CA from December 1-2nd, 2015.

Mr. Criswell will address why Risk Adjustment analytic solutions for the Health Insurance Exchanges (HIX) should not be treated with the same regard as Medicare Advantage. In his discussion, Mr. Criswell will cover topics such as:

  • Why MA intervention strategies fail so miserably in HIX
  • Why HIX needs quantification/monetization of opportunities and closed gaps in terms of contribution to net transfer payments
  • Understanding impact of the high out-of-pockets in HIX plans on finding and closing gaps (OOPs as barrier to access)
  • Properly scoring: CSR categories, reinsurance calculations

Pulse8 Risk Adjustment and Big Data experts will be onsite to offer health plan and provider attendees:

  • Interactive demonstrations of its revolutionary Risk Adjustment analytics;
  • Insight into how big data and advanced analytics can be used to find more opportunities, intervene more precisely, and obtain superior financial results; and
  • Real-time visibility into individual member and provider activities that allow health plans and providers to drill down and move quickly in order to deploy the most cost-effective and appropriate interventions.
