Identifying Causes and Impacts of Care Variations

Patient Cards with medications

The State of Connecticut’s Medicaid program used PROMETHEUS Analytics to uncover the main reasons for variations in episode costs of care. The program was also able to identify the impact of certain prescription drugs on reductions of potentially avoidable complications (PACs), and understand how health systems compared to one another in managing pregnancies and deliveries. Armed with this data, the Medicaid program can take targeted action to address these critical patient care issues.
