Analyses: Behavioral Health Impact on Total Population Health and Cost
Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™ clients occasionally have a transformation leadership group tasked with identifying and initiating internal integrated care innovations but do not wish Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™ input about future options. These groups often seek help in capturing and analyzing needed data before new program development starts, such as:
- Answering critical questions about the populations they serve, health care access and use associated with their system business practices, and measured total medical and behavioral health and cost outcomes or
- Understanding how they financially support or provide care that facilitates or inhibits population health and cost.
Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™-directed Analyses help client work groups save time and effort in using internal datasets to explore where value-added changes might better position them to compete in the health system, based on identified service use and cost patterns of the populations they serve at their organizations. During the past 20 years, Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™ has evaluated current organizational states for many clients related to the way that they handle medical and behavioral health services. It has developed a proprietary analytic template that is customizable to the special needs of businesses, government agencies, health plans, and accountable provider groups.
Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™ Analyses involve working with the client’s Information Technology (IT) specialists, finance department, and health professionals in analyzing the client’s “population data” to inform what is working, what is not, and what might be tried. Analyses are performed in collaboration with internal leadership using the clinical and financial framework of the organization so that findings are understandable and believable.
Each client type derives information pertinent to their organization and constituency based on the questions that they wish answered.
“Analyses” are typically included as initial activities when Cartesian Solutions, Inc.™ consults on Putting Behavioral Health Care into Medical Settings, Making Super Utilizers Just Utilizers, or Getting from Pre-ACA to Post-ACA. With these Services, it is necessary to understand the base state of the client population and business practices before considering solutions and recommendations.
