Closing the ratings gap
In the Medicare industry, Star ratings are indicators of quality care and customer service. Prime uses holistic member, prescriber, and pharmacy data and analytics to uncover opportunities to help close Star ratings gaps.
For example, Prime’s GuidedHealth® program helps members and providers make better decisions about members’ health. The program uses data and analytics to help improve health outcomes, increase safety and lower total cost of care.
According to Prime internal data
Prime’s program shows improved adherence among Medicare members
Improving drug adherence is critical to increasing Star ratings. Adherence is measured across three categories: diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins). Prime offers a new Medicare proactive pharmacist program informed by a predictive model to improve drug adherence in those areas and, in turn, Star Ratings.
