Project:

3Rs Analytic Enablement via the Unified Data Warehouse (UDW)

Synopsis:

The Unified Data Warehouse (UDW) is UHG’s most comprehensive integrated repository, including claims, clinical, consumer/member, customer, product, plan and benefit, financial management, provider, dental, vision, pharmacy and behavioral health data. The UDW program has delivered millions of dollars of business value across the organization.

One such example has been the ability to meet the stringent reporting requirements associated with the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by the federal government, which mandated new reporting practices beginning in January 2014. To meet these requirements, specifically the legislative components known as the three R’s (Risk Adjustment, Risk Corridors, and Reinsurance), UHG needed a health care reform-focused reporting capability. Leveraging the UDW’s integrated data environment, UHG was able to design and deliver its 3R reports containing claims, member, policy and provider data sourced from more than 30 systems to meet federal requirements and satisfy internal measures of success tied to volume and quality. UHG was able to achieve exceptionally high data acceptance for their 2016 3R submission.
