How payers and providers can leverage external claims data to manage risk and understand market dynamics during the pandemic and beyond.

Mass job losses, closure of healthcare facilities, and patients’ fears about visiting their doctor, scheduling procedures, or even picking-up their prescriptions has all led to physicians and payers no longer being able to rely on traditional data to predict future trends. This has also led to a continued shift to value-based care and digital transformation. The marketplace is now awash in both unexpected risks and paradigm shifts in how we approach our healthcare in general, as providers, payers, and as consumers now require more diverse data to interpret.
