Why high-risk care management isn't enough

The first step to prioritize patients

Instead of just focusing on high-cost patients, you need to stem the flow of moderate-risk patients into the top 5%.

Here’s something you may have heard before: the top 5% of patients consume over 50% of total health spending in the U.S. So if you’re a population health manager, the top 5% seems like a good place to start.

But managing the patients who are already in the top 5% won’t be enough to see ROI on population health for long. That's because every year, nearly a fifth of moderate-risk patients become high risk and move into that top 5%.

Nearly two thirds of the highest performing population health managers have already invested in risk segmentation analytics. Find out why care management really starts after you segment and prioritize your patients.
