Ep #67: Using Data To Lower Costs, Increase Quality And Drive Client Value – With Troy Cook

David Saltzman 0 Comments


At the recent National Association of Health Underwriters Convention we invited Troy Cook, Vice President of Sales & Development at Telligen to discuss how we can use data and analytics to improve the system for all stakeholders. Troy discusses some of the key variables that advisors need to embrace and understand to help bring clients make informed decisions around plan choice, employee education, engagement, and more.

On this wide-ranging discussion, Troy explains what can be done, in light of the Affordable Care Act, to actually make the health care affordable. We discuss the possibilities of looking through the windshield rather than the rearview mirror when using evidenced-based medicine and predictive modeling. We also explore how using those data can help lower costs, improve quality and deliver a better overall client experience.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Whether we can ever stop looking out the rear-view mirror.
  • Whether predictive modeling is advancing.
  • How clinical analytics can help providers.
  • How members can get the right care at the right place and at the right time.
  • The issue of readmission and what can be done to lower those rates.
