You may already be mining your health and prescription data for insights, but are you taking advantage of all the data available? Read the case study to learn:
Self-insured employers and benefits advisers know all about mining health and prescription claims for insights. But are you looking beyond these data feeds? Here’s how one employer found trends in their dental data.
Dental benefits have gone from “nice to have” to a standard feature of most self-insured employers’ benefits plans. One Artemis Health customer wanted to know how their employees were using their dental benefits. Here’s how we helped.
The Artemis Platform is flexible enough to warehouse just about any benefits data feed, but it’s so much more than an old-school data warehouse. Artemis makes it easy for our customers to find trends, track engagement, and cross-walk data across different benefits programs.
For this customer, we used a number of pre-loaded filters to find trends around dental program utilization.
First, we sorted the number of claims by procedure code. We found that most dental claims were for preventive care visits.
The customer also wanted to explore the demographics around dental coverage utilization. We compared claim costs to employee type and used the Artemis Visualize app to create easy-to-read charts.
Additionally, this analysis included a count of anonymized dental claims by gender, office location, provider, job level, and even utilization bands. One interesting trend we found? Only 9% of eligible members had a preventive dental claim in the last year.
Finally, we helped the customer look at one more demographic breakdown: dental claims by age.
The de-identified data we used in this analysis showed a few key findings:
This analysis highlighted trends, utilization, and engagement data the employer needed to take action. They can use the insights gained to plan and execute benefits communications, encourage utilization, and even refine their dental program offerings to meet the needs of their member population.
