Johns Hopkins ACG® System

“Person-focused” healthcare management means genuinely knowing your members and accurately forecasting their needs over time. Identifying patients at high risk, understanding provider performance, forecasting healthcare utilization based on medical and/or pharmacy claims, and identifying equitable payment rates can help you measure morbidity and help improve accuracy and fairness.

The Johns Hopkins ACG® System, included in our CareAnalyzer® solution has been used in commercial and research settings worldwide, longer and more extensively than any other system on the market today. It uniquely helps payers measure the impact of multi-morbidity by recognizing patterns of disease. As the exclusive U.S. distributor of the Johns Hopkins ACG® Systems, we help payers in all markets.

What it means for you:

  • Improved reporting capabilities that enable you to integrate supplemental data and custom models.
  • New and revised risk-assessment markers improve the categorization of mental illness, refine frailty concepts, and more.
  • New predictive models help you stratify your member population in new ways; for example, identifying persistent high users whose expenses don’t regress toward the mean.
  • Utilize Care Density scores, insights from social networking, and referral patterns between physicians to better coordinate care in complex patients.
  • Describe and manage healthier populations.
