Frequently Asked Questions about the Artemis Platform

Artemis Health

We know you have them – questions about how to navigate the
data awesomeness that is the Artemis Platform. Let’s dive into a few of our most
frequently asked questions and give you and your team the knowledge you need to
get the most from your benefit programs.


Q. I can customize the Home screen? Who else will see this

A. Yes, just click the “Change Home” button at the top right
to add or remove apps, pin stories or visualizations, and change the titles of
different sections to suit your unique needs. Click “Done Editing” to save
changes. Only you will see this view – other Artemis users can customize their
Home screens too.

Q. Cutting costs is great, but I also want to provide high
value to my employees. How do you tackle that?

A. Artemis is focused on quality care too, not just cost
savings. For example, when we recommend changes to your pharmacy formulary,
we’re only looking at drugs that provide cost savings WHILE maintaining equal potency and therapeutic equivalency. The New Program Savings can also help you evaluate
new programs, justify vendor relationships, and calculate ROI. Our goal is to find waste,
not find the lowest cost option.


Q. Prescription benefits are a big chunk of our spending.
What kind of savings are you finding?

On average, we’re seeing about $300/member of potential
savings. Those using the Inefficient Rx app are identifying about 10% of
actionable waste.

Q. Who will help me build these stories for my organization? 

A. Users are able to easily and intuitively create
Visualizations, Stories, and Explorations, then add them as cards to the
Stories App. Users can also clone cards and drag/drop them into the Stories
App. However, if you ever need assistance, ,we provide 20 hours a month of
analytic support – our team can build stories for you, or we can loop in your
consultants to help.


Q. I need to show these visualizations to our executive
team, but I don’t want them to have user privileges on the Artemis Platform.
What should I do?

A. You can easily create visualizations and export the images
or cards in the Stories App as PNG images. Then quickly add them to a
presentation or save them as PDFs.

Q. What’s the turnaround time on running reports? 

A. Standard, ad hoc reports can run in seconds, and the
results are available instantaneously. Previously saved reports can be
refreshed in seconds. Custom reports will go through the Artemis Customer
Success team, and requests are typically fulfilled in a few hours to a few
days, depending on the complexity of the request.


Q. What kind of wellness programs can be measured in the
Initiatives App?

A. Any program that you can measure participation or
engagement can be measured in the Initiatives App. During implementation, we’ll
figure out what data points are most helpful, then work with the vendor to get
the data and measure its effectiveness using cohorts. We use a 1:1 matched
pairs cohort analysis to see the impact of a wellness program.

Q. How long does it take to implement Artemis for a typical

A. We get it – it takes a lot of time and effort to
implement a new platform like Artemis. We break implementation into a few
phases depending on how many vendor files need to be integrated (we recommend
between 4-7 per phase). Historically, we have seen the first phase take between
4-6 months to implement and go live depending on the vendors selected (medical,
Rx, and eligibility), and each remaining phase takes about 3 months. We work
directly with your vendors and take the heavy-lifting off your plate as much as
possible. It’s part of our “white glove” service approach.

We’ll bet this is just the start of your questions about
the Artemis Platform, and we’re happy to answer them all. Get in touch for more
information on how we do what we do.
