Most people understand that certain analytics, such as morbidity and mortality rate, are going to be tracked closely by almost every insurance provider; however, how insurance companies use these analytics will change regularly. Furthermore, certain insurance providers may place different levels of priority on different analytics. It is important for hospitals and physician practices to remain up to date on how these analytics are being used by the various insurance providers and how these analytics impact the bottom line of physician practices and hospital networks. Metrics such as “bounce-back” rate, the length of stay, and time to treatment are examples of common analytics that are prioritized by various insurance companies.

All of this will be discussed at the Healthcare Analytics Summit of 2017.
