Easy-to-use, visual interface provides access to analytics for understanding health benefits usage, modeling change scenarios
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ingenix is launching Ingenix® TrendView™, an affordable, easy-to-use desktop solution designed to help companies better understand and manage a critical expense category – employee medical costs. Ingenix TrendView provides graphical views of consolidated employee benefits usage, enables scenario modeling, and uncovers opportunities for reducing medical costs and improving employee health.
With health care spending projected to grow 6.1 percent annually over the next decade, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, employers face intense pressure to control their medical costs while offering competitive health benefits that will attract and retain the best talent.
Ingenix TrendView is a low-cost, flexible online tool that helps companies address these challenges by converting employee health claims data from multiple sources – including multiple health plans serving their employees – into easy-to-understand visual reports. Employers can use these reports to answer a variety of cost-management questions, such as where they might reduce prescription costs by promoting the use of generic versions of brand-name drugs most commonly prescribed to their employees or how they can minimize employee absenteeism through increased use of preventive care.
Employers can also use Ingenix TrendView to perform simple “what if” scenarios to see how changes to their health benefit plans could affect overall medical costs.
“TrendView is revolutionary in its intuitive, visual approach to delivering actionable insights,” said Tina Brown-Stevenson, executive vice president, health care innovation and information at Ingenix. “TrendView is simple to install, requires less than two hours of training and gives employers access to accurate, understandable information.”
Ingenix TrendView is ideally suited for companies with 2,000 to 10,000 employees that offer multiple health plans, and for health plan management brokers and consultants serving mid-size employers. Because Ingenix TrendView is Web-based, employers need only a PC and an Internet browser to use it.
Ingenix TrendView includes eight tabbed screens (for a product demonstration, click here):
Each Ingenix TrendView screen is easy to navigate. With one click, employers can view a different time period or type of information, download the data behind any graphic and print reports.
