76% of health plans collaborating with providers on population health: 4 survey insights

Eighty-two percent of health plans expect to work with providers on population health initiatives within the next three years, according to a Deloitte report.

For the report, titled the "Deloitte Center for Health Solutions 2017 U.S. Health Plan Analytics Survey," the audit and consulting firm surveyed 45 health plans about their work in the data analytics space.

Here are four survey insights.

1. Seventy-six percent of respondents indicated they are already working with healthcare providers on population health initiatives. However, these collaborations often lack maturity and effectiveness, according to Deloitte, and only 16 percent of respondents ranked collaboration with providers as a top priority driving investment in analytics.

2. Here's how health plan executives responded when asked what analytics tools they offer providers:

  • Provider performance management: 67 percent
  • Value-based contract performance: 64 percent
  • Population health management: 56 percent
  • Social determinants of health insights: 40 percent

3. Sixty-nine percent of respondents indicated they intend to share claims data with providers within the next three years.

4. Health plans indicated they were most likely to prioritize investment in clinical analytics (78 percent) and customer and employer analytics (62 percent) over the next three years, rather than market and financial analytics (56 percent) or operational analytics (53 percent).
