Why it's the Best
This company has extraordinary proprietary technology that analyzes current data to predict where
the hospital's major employee healthcare costs will be in the future, and makes recommendations
as to how to reduce them.  The physician analysis tool facilitates Pay for Performance (P4P)
initiatives.


The company's total offering is a system, using Web-based information technology, that addresses
and reduces employee health benefit costs without reducing benefits or shifting cost to your
employees.

network administration and efforts to reverse the trends of chronic illness.

determine priority and focus, and the evaluative tools to measure efficiency and effectiveness.
