VitreosHealth, the Predictive Healthcare Insights company, announced that it was cited in Modern Healthcare for its work with Social Determinants

PLANO, TEXAS – April 12, 2018 – VitreosHealth, the Predictive Healthcare Insights company, announced today that it was featured in a recent Modern Healthcare article written by Virgil Dickson. In the article, called “Mapping the Impacts of Social Determinants of Health,” Mr. Dickson writes, “the issue of trying to manage all of the factors contributing to a person’s health is growing as providers work increasingly under value-based purchasing models and at the same time are expected to reduce the cost of care.”

The article goes on to highlight VitreosHealth because the company has over 8 years of experience using social determinants data to predict adverse health outcomes. CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances uses VitreosHealth because the company, “provides risk stratification platforms and analyzes data—including claims data—to try to optimize the cost and performance of healthcare.” In partnership with VitreosHealth, Trinity Mother Frances has been able to cut average monthly spending on patients by 15% since 2016. Emergency room visits for targeted patients have fallen by 20%.

“Before we were making care decisions, but we didn’t have the full picture of what was happening with a patient,” said Andrea Anderson, administrative director of population health and primary care at CHRISTUS Trinity. “There’s so much more information the payers had that helped us more effectively manage patients.”

Jay Reddy, CEO and Co-Founder of VitreosHealth says, “We have been using psycho-social data at VitreosHealth since our inception. It’s validating that there has been so much buzz in the marketplace about the power of using social determinants of health to impact outcomes.”
