Centene recently rolled out its Centelligence platform, a management program that uses a combination of advanced analytics and algorithms to help identify its high-risk members and deliver useful data -- including automated alerts -- to call center representatives, case managers, medical management employees, and medical providers to ensure that members receive the appropriate healthcare. Using Centelligence, demographic and medical data are collected and enhanced through predictive modeling. The predictive techniques, combined with advanced analytics, enable Centene to offer appropriate case and disease management for members who are enrolled in its health plans.

With Centelligence, Centene can see if a member has picked up a prescription that was ordered by one of the clinicians, for instance, an important piece of data to help measure adherence to the treatment plan. Centene also asks all pregnant members, or their healthcare providers, to complete a "notification of pregnancy" health risk assessment, which is then scored by the Centelligence tool. That score allows the health plan to put high-risk members into a case management program, called StartSmart for Your Baby, which is designed to meet their special needs.

Customized healthcare software helped our facility
Our urgent care facility hired to build a customized solution for our practice that automates the processes of providing and administering health care so we can focus on patients. Security was a concern, which is why we shyed away from cloud computing. Uniform Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is so important - it facilitates basic healthcare business processes, including claims transactions, remittance advices and eligibility and enrollment transactions.
