Milliman’s MedInsight® and Hayes, a division of TractManager, announced

claims analytics™.

David Mirkin, MD, Chief Medical Officer at MedInsight, explains, “This
solution is the first of its kind to combine traditional analytics with
evidence-based metrics to provide a new depth of insight into unique
populations. It is the only product healthcare insurers can use
retrospectively to understand where spending without proven benefits
exists, and to prepare proactively for the impact emerging and
disruptive technologies may have in the future.”

Trace Devanny, CEO of TractManager, added, “The MedInsight Hayes Grouper
is an exciting new solution that is going to support healthcare
professionals in making better, more defensible clinical and policy
choices. The Grouper’s unique decision support analytics will help
insurers manage the enormous challenges that are raised by emerging and
disruptive technologies. And it is consistent with our mission to help
providers and insurers make smarter decisions with data, research, and
services as they continue to advance a smarter, more integrated
healthcare system.”

The MedInsight Hayes Grouper uses Milliman’s powerful claims analytics
and pairs it with Hayes Ratings™, the gold standard for evidence-based
analysis trusted by insurers and providers for more than 30 years. The
Grouper features two evidence-based analytics calculators that analyze
the impact of emerging and disruptive technologies, such as new
therapies, medical devices, and diagnostic testing. The Disruptive
Technology Impact Calculator™
determines the potential financial
impact that emerging and disruptive technologies may have on an
insurer’s population over time. The Hayes Rating Impact Calculator™
runs the client’s MedInsight claims analytics against Hayes’
evidence-based criteria to identify and determine the real cost of
technologies that lack clinical evidence to support their use for
specific clinical applications.

Maura Connor, Chief Operating Officer of TractManager’s Hayes division,
noted, “The MedInsight Hayes Grouper offers clients a new way to mine
claims data and identify procedures and technology utilization not
backed by evidence. The results are consistent with TractManager’s and
MedInsight’s goals of positively impacting our healthcare system through
improved decision-making, patient outcomes, and sound financial results.”
