Predictive Analysis

These predictions are based on ~100 billion feature combinations.

How does HBI Solutions incorporate uncoded/
unstructured data?

HBI Spotlight uses uses natural language processing (NLP) to extract information from unstructured data sources, such as clinical notes and summaries.

This strengthens risk predictions and more quickly identifies patients in need of intervention when a diagnosis code is absent from the record.

One study found that using NLP resulted in the identification of 9% more patients with diabetes than using diagnosis codes alone.
20% of health information is coded
What risk models are available?

Whether it’s predicting future costs, identifying an individual’s probability of a specific health event or condition, or understanding the risk profile of a population, HBI Solutions has the expertise.

More than 30 risk models are
available today, including:

What potential savings can be realized?

A recent study used Spotlight to analyze EMR data to identify Medicare patients at risk of chronic kidney disease in the next 12 months.

3Months

The study model identified
72.9% of high-risk patients at least three months before the confirmatory diagnosis was made by physicians.2

More than $113.5M

For a population of 50,000 lives, early interventions to prevent progression from Stage 2 to Stage 3 kidney disease could (using Medicare cost data) result in savings of $9.5M per year, and preventing progression to Stage 4 could save more than $104M.3
