How Employers Can Gain Control of Healthcare Costs Through Data Analytics

Dan Ross of Med-Vision Tours the U.S. Offering Risk Management Strategies for Reducing Health Costs.

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Med-Vision, LLC, a health plan and risk management strategy firm serving self-funded employers, announces that founder and president Dan Ross will be the featured presenter at a Southwest Michigan Association of Health Underwriters (SMAHU) event at 8 a.m. on Nov. 16 at Kalamazoo Country Club in Kalamazoo, Mich.

Ross, who has 20 years of experience in the employee benefits industry, will discuss how health data analytics is empowering employers to gain control of health costs, which are increasing at a national rate of 9-12 percent annually. This presentation comes after Med-Vision cohosts a weeklong series of employer-driven healthcare reform seminars in Florida for large, self-funded employers.

“Dan is a great thought leader, and Med-Vision’s approach to claims analysis is valuable for businesses and those in the insurance industry,” said Scott Doherty, founder of the Doherty Agency and president of SMAHU, which is a local chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters. “Regardless if you have a large organization with thousands of lives or a small business, the data shows that a small percentage of an employee population has a higher risk of certain diseases, which drives the majority of health costs.”

According to the CDC, 75 percent of healthcare costs come from chronic disease. Ross’ presentation for SMAHU will focus on how to analyze the data to implement customized disease management programs to counter those health risks. Med-Vision’s database of employer-sponsored plans shows that just 5 percent of members account for 60 to 70 percent of all employer health expenses.

Ross said, “Through predictive risk modeling, quality compliance, and corresponding wellness programs, we’re blazing a trail for employers to save money while boosting employee productivity.”
