Analytics for Risk Contracting (ARC) Suite

Project Management Backgroud Image

The Analytics for Risk Contracting (ARC) platform helps achieve optimal value and performance for health care organizations currently in or planning to move to risk-based arrangements.

ARC pinpoints opportunities for improving care delivery and population health and the resulting net financial effect of those changes. It uses proprietary algorithms for financial modeling that enable providers to understand and explore the financial impact of various combinations of inputs, such as changes in specialty use, inpatient use, and physician incentives. Providers can see how they are performing against their care delivery and financial plans.

ARC software makes it possible for providers to confidently chart a financially viable course to accepting more risk-based payments while driving better quality, outcomes and costs.

The analytics platform delivers precise information and detailed insight from its comprehensive data inputs and analytical power.

ARC:

  • Aggregates data from numerous sources across the continuum of care and populations—claims, pharmaceutical, provider financials, and national, regional and network benchmarks.
  • Transforms, sorts, slices and analyzes data into actionable insights, such as network gaps, high-risk members or therapy effectiveness based on risk factors such as patient age and comorbidities.
  • Provides root causes and paths for navigating to solutions after flagging specific problems or variations within populations, service lines, clinicians or locations.
  • Develop a roadmap to economic sustainability in value-based contract arrangements.
  • Operationalize value-based care by identifying targeted opportunities to implement population health and cost reduction initiatives to better manage a population.
  • Tailor initiatives to meet local and regional market nuances.
  • Draw on growing provider use cases to enhance learning for all.
  • Understand the financial impact of initiatives across an organization.
  • Facilitate improved care coordination and outcomes with dashboards for the entire care team—physicians, pharmacist, network managers, care coordinators, post-acute/community-based organizations, finance experts and senior leadership.
  • Create internal benchmarking and compare national best practices to facilitate change in physician and other provider approaches to care delivery.
  • Access disparate data sources, advancing data interoperability goals.
  • Draw on growing provider use cases to enhance learning for all.
