HRCI* & SHRM** Pre-approved AP Benefit Advisors Webinar Series: Using Data Analytics to Change the Network Paradigm – Enhancing Benefits & Reducing Costs
Join AP Benefit Advisors’ Director of Data Analytics, Scott Mayer, for this complimentary, one-hour, HRCI* and SHRM** pre-approved webinar as he reviews how to identify more effective metrics to measure the cost efficiency of healthcare provider networks than by simply looking at average network discounts. HR departments often spend significant time reviewing network discounts to compare and contrast plan cost and efficacy. In this webinar, we will review how and why these metrics can be misleading, and alternatives to determine a more effective approach to improve plan benefits while reducing costs.
Topics will include:
- Why and how network discounts can be an inefficient metric
- How quality, as well as cost, can factor in to unit-cost spending
- Sites of service and impacts on unit-costs
- Diagnosis codes and impacts on unit-costs
- Pharmacy language and Medicare Part B pricing
- Wednesday, June 22, 2016
- 1:00 – 2:00pm EDT
- No Cost to Attend
- This webinar is open to all HR and Finance Professionals – but not to brokers, agents, TPAs and PEOs.
