Health Risk Stratification: Targeted Tools and Methodologies to Prevent Illness and Improve Health


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. 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 42-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 42-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.
