Predictive Analytics, MSSP & Star: Relating & analyzing these Medicare programs for hidden compliance & enrollment patterns 
There is a strong focus on improving quality for Medicare beneficiaries as a result of national healthcare reform. Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and Pioneer ACOs require the reporting of quality measures this year and will start paying for performance in subsequent years. Medicare rates Part C and Part D plans on quality performance and provides financial incentives to reward better quality. This session addresses and compares these different quality measures, and shares how predictive analytics can help uncover the hidden patterns of compliance and enrollment decisions.

The Medicare Shared Savings Program and the Medicare Advantage Part C "Star" rating program both provide significant potential financial rewards if participating organizations meet applicable criteria. Join Milliman's Rong Yi and Bruce Pyenson as they explore how the two sets of quality measures relate to each other, and what types of these Medicare members are less likely to be compliant therefore require more targeted communication or intervention.
