Clinically Validated Vital Signs for Mental Health

Payers Making the Most of Their Data with Limited Resources
During the AHIP Annual conference in Las Vegas, I had a chance to sit down with David Schweppe, Chief Analytics Officer at MedeAnalytics, to learn more about what he was hearing at the conference and how MedeAnalytics can help the payer community.  In the interview below, I asked Schweppe what he’s seen that he knows works for the AHIP payer end user.  Plus, I asked him about how payers can make SDoH and health equity data actionable.  Doing so has been a hot topic lately and no doubt was a major discussion at the conference.

KLAS Differentiates Patient Communications from Patient-Driven Care Management Solutions
In this report, you actually divide what once was a single category of vendors and products into two separate categories. You now have patient communication solutions and then something you call patient driven care management solutions. Can you help us with that distinction? What’s the difference between the two?
