CMT analytics uses claims data from the perspective of behavioral health
Why is behavioral health a conduit into healthcare analytics?
- 1 in 4 Americans has a diagnosable mental disorder.
- 1 in 17 Americans has a serious mental disorder.
- Behavioral disorders are the leading cause of disability in the US and Canada.
- Behavioral Health concerns account for more missed work days than any other health condition.
- People with diagnosable mental disorders are 50% more likely to be hospitalized for a physical health condition.
- Behavioral disorders are associated with more costs with lower improvements in quality of health.
- Persons with serious mental illness die 25 years younger than those without behavioral health disorders and die from physical health preventable conditions.
The presence of behavioral health conditions points the way to indicators of general health risk and healthcare costs. Knowledge and insight in to the complexity of behavioral health concerns and the application of evidence based medicines and services is a pathway to improvements in care while lowering costs.
CMT analytics identify high-risk, high-cost patients
CMT's ProAct analytics explores and identifies patients with patterns of care that are statistically associated with future hospitalizations and emergency room use. These events may be preventable.
CMT Quality Indicators identify 18.7% of patients who accountfor 50% or half of all hospitalizations and ER visits - both behavioral and non-behavioral.
CMT's ProAct aggregates data by populations and subpopulations and identifies action steps for specific patients and prescribers.
Using CMT's ProAct Web portal, payers and providers can survey patient groups and individual consumers to:
- Identify persons at risk for future high cost services.
- Promote evidence-based behavioral health care for individual cases.
- Expedite ongoing measurement and evaluation of health care improvement.
- Improve care coordination and care transitions.
