Richardson, Texas – (June 21, 2021) MedeAnalytics, a healthcare analytics software-as-a-service (SaaS) leader, announced today the go-live of its latest release, Aruba 21.1. It includes game changing capabilities in response to the needs of its Payer and Provider clients for the post-pandemic “new normal.”

“These new capabilities in our Aruba 21.1 release will enable our payer clients to proactively identity the most vulnerable communities impacted by the pandemic or natural disasters, monitor opioid and substance abuse by geography, power heat maps for chronic conditions by county, as well as identify COVID-19 vaccine administration with costs,” said Scott Hampel, president of MedeAnalytics. “The new capabilities will deliver a holistic view for healthcare providers into patients over multiple years, empowering clinicians to deliver the right care at the right time and enable superior patient outcomes.”

Here are additional details on a few of the new capabilities in the Aruba 21.1 release:

For Payers

The latest updates to the MedeAnalytics payer platform will enable organizations to more effectively assess performance, identify at-risk communities, develop education strategies, and more.

The Social Vulnerability Index is an SDOH capability that uses 15 U.S. census variables to identify and understand communities and members that may be impacted more acutely by disaster and need extra support.

The Medicaid & Medicare Substance Use Disorder Dashboard provides a deep dive into substance use by geography, type of disorder, and mental health co-morbidities to develop effective youth education strategies and care management plans.

Similarly, the Medicaid & Medicare Chronic Condition Updates show geographic heat maps with major chronic condition issues by county that Medicaid may want to address.

The Employer Account Forecasting Dashboard shows financial utilization and enrollment trends, with ability to see trends and take necessary action on undesirable forecasts.

The ACO Dashboard offers a clear view into performance on cost and utilization, leakage, monthly trending, quality measures, and patient risk.

For Providers

On the provider front, the most recent updates will drive improved patient care, create new efficiencies in reporting, and more.

The Patient Dimension tool (currently in Beta) delivers a holistic view into patients over the years, empowering clinicians to deliver the right care at the right time.

Both internal analytics and external audit workflows have been updated as well.  Internally, organizations can now launch collaborative investigations into any data set, including opportunity/risk reviews, actionable overview dashboards, and more. For external audits, search capabilities have been improved significantly and charts can now be marked as “Reviewed” to streamline workflow and provide quick insight.

This update also created efficiencies in data load optimization within Business Office as well as improved registration and reporting speeds for Patient Access.

General Features

Finally, MedeAnalytics deployed three highly requested features that will prove useful for various roles and organization types:

The new Resource Center presents a new way to access support information, request enhancements, share ideas, receive announcements, and more.

The Export Dashboards to PowerPoint feature offers online and scheduled exports of print-ready dashboards to PowerPoint (with some editing available) – which can save time, expand reach, and be increasingly self-service.

Finally, embedded Nelson Rules allow users to visualize significant trends, outliers, and ongoing deviations from normal across cost, utilization and quality metrics.
