White Paper: Proactively Identifying the High Cost Population

We’ve all read the statistic from AHRQ that 5 percent of the population accounts for roughly half of total health care expenditures – but what can health care systems and payers do to identify these patients as a precursor to better managing their care?

The Health Care Transformation Task Force, a consortium of patients, payers, providers and purchasers working to transform the U.S. health care system, addresses this issue through its latest white paper – “Proactively Identifying the High Cost Population.” Learn best practices to identify high cost patients and review proven methods to stratify high cost patients for targeted care management.
