A powerful component of a health planís disease management toolkit is the Health Risk Assessment (HRA), which evaluates the populationís health status and targets actionable programs to address identified risks. Implementing effective HRAs and mining the resulting data is a strategic means of harnessing healthcare costs and promoting consumer awareness.

In this 46-page special report, Mining Health Risk Assessments for Richer ROI and Results, HINís expert panelists explore the progressive evolution of HRAs. Gregg Lehman, PhD, former president and chief executive officer, Gordian Health Solutions, Marlene Sigwalt, RN, MSPH, clinical consultant, Innovation Center, Humana, Inc., and Yan Zhang, research scientist, Humana, Inc. provide procedures, objectives, predictive capacities, consumer engagement strategies and results of these tactical questionnaires to identify risk before it becomes reality.

Youíll also get case studies on the HRA programs at HealthAtoZ, Blue Shield of California and Aetna.

You'll get details on:

  • Evolutions in the HRA market;
  • Risk stratification in the HRA;
  • Ideas to incent HRA participation;
  • Strategies for engaging physicians in the HRA effort;
  • Case study of HRA implementation;
  • Anatomy of Humana's in-house HRA development effort;
  • Using HRAs to probe productivity;
  • How an incentives program at Blue Shield of California cut claims cost in its first year; and
  • Stratifying your population to identify next yearís high-risk population.

To deflect the cost of chronic care, the scope of healthcare has broadened to embrace prevention. Using a variety of tools and methodologies, more healthcare organizations are striving to pinpoint that population poised for or in the midst of a health crisis and then attempting to slow or prevent complications. This special report, Health Risk Stratification: Targeted Tools and Methodologies to Prevent Illness and Improve Health, profiles the efforts of two organizations who have successfully identified high-risk members and patients and aligned appropriate interventions.

In separate case studies, Health Risk Stratification: Targeted Tools and Methodologies to Prevent Illness and Improve Health chronicles the paths of two healthcare organizations seeking to identify health risk factors in their respective populations and develop policies and outreach to put these individuals on the road to better health. With a special focus on the challenges of connecting with Medicaid enrollees, this 38-page special report highlights the essential role of the health risk assessment (HRA) tool in pinpointing the health status of employees and health plan members.

This 40-page report is based on contributions from Thomas Ferraro, business development director with Mayo Clinic Health Management Resources, and Penelope Kokkinides, national vice president of disease management with AmeriChoice, a United Healthcare Company, who presented at a HIN audio conference in August 2006.

PLUS this report contains a detailed analysis of the more than 200 responses to HIN's 2005 online survey on the use of HRAs by health plans, employers and healthcare providers.

You'll get details on:

  • Identifying health risk factors in populations and mapping risks to interventions;
  • The special challenges of engaging the Medicaid population;
  • Post-HRA interventions to promote health;
  • The incentive debate -- whether carrots or sticks motivate individuals to participate;
  • Collecting, analyzing, integrating and storing HRA data;
  • Interacting with HRA and disease management vendors;
  • The impact of HRAs on more than 200 healthcare organizations who use them -- employers, health plans and providers;
  • and much more.
