Leveraging Benchmarks to Determine Optimal Benefits Plan Design

BLOG | April 25, 2023


The Central Problem:

Heightened Healthcare Costs and Utilization

Employers are searching for ways to control rising healthcare costs without sacrificing care quality. In a recent Centivo poll, nearly 75% of employees are willing to trade how they access care to realize annual healthcare savings. This is where benchmarking becomes most relevant, serving as a cost and quality reference tool to help identify high-performing provider networks, optimal treatment, and efficient locations of care. This information can help determine plan design incentives and “trade-offs” that are mutually acceptable to curb year-over-year cost increases and promote improved quality.


The Solution:

Cedar Gate’s Healthcare Benefits Analytics (HBA)

Healthcare Benefits Analytics is a member-focused benefits analytics tool that can help employers optimize the performance of their benefits plans. Main benefits and features include:

  • Establishing a Baseline for Cost and Utilization Outcomes: HBA can help set a baseline standard for cost and utilization goals by leveraging a proprietary reference database of over 12 million members.
  • Self-Service Plan Design and Reporting: Unlike other analytics tools, HBA is built for self-service usage, design, and automated reporting, minimizing the need for third-party support and system integrators.
  • Cloud-Based Tools: HBA’s cloud-based tools utilize cleansed and enriched data from our enterprise data management system, allowing providers and payers to centralize their book of business in one location.
  • Identifying Savings Recommendations and Generating Visual Dashboards: HBA can identify savings recommendations and deliver user-friendly dashboards that more easily communicate insights and key points.
  • Real-Time Queries: Providers and payers can run real-time queries to compare health plan performance against benchmarks, based on our proprietary member population data set.

You don’t need to be an IT genius or hire a bunch of consultants to get started. HBA is built for self-service plan design and reporting, so you can easily access and visualize the data you need to make informed decisions. It offers a critical solution to mitigate healthcare costs and utilization, helping employers navigate the complex world of healthcare benefits and deliver the best care to employees.
