Benefitfocus and Battelle to Showcase How Data Analytics Drive Better Benefit Decisions

Cindi Van Meir and Cheryl Hayter present case study on how integrating claims data drove double-digit enrollment in HDHP

Charleston, S.C. – Sept. 29, 2015 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, will co-present with  Battelle Memorial Institute at the upcoming Employee Benefit News Forum and Expo, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek on Thursday, October 1 at 2:00 p.m. Benefitfocus Product Manager Cindi Van Meir will join Battelle Senior Benefits Consultant Cheryl Hayter to discuss how Battelle increased HDHP adoption using BENEFITFOCUS® Marketplace and Core + Advanced Analytics solution.

Battelle successfully integrated personalized claims data and decision support tools to drive adoption in its HDHP program from 18 percent last year to 29 percent as of September 2015. “The shift to individual accountability in healthcare requires consumers to use their benefits wisely as well as the impacts of those choices to their financial wellness,” said Van Meir.  “The challenge has been arming them with the right information to make effective decisions. We’ve made it a lot easier to do so.”

Key points to be addressed in the presentation entitled, “Driving Better Benefit Decisions Through Data and Analytics” include:

  • Why today’s benefits management systems fall short when it comes to driving HDHP participation and what you can do about it.
  • Where to start with implementing CDHPs and how voluntary benefits can help provide more options
  • How claims and biometric data make it simple to maximize the value of your health and wellness spend
  • How to use the right data analytics to measure the success of your health and wellness program
