Synchronizing clinical care for a total health care approach

With pharmacy, the most frequent consumer touch point, we use every member interaction as an opportunity to direct members to their next best health and savings action. 

We pinpoint these opportunities with OptumIQ™ — a unique combination of data, analytics, and health care expertise that allow us to synchronize medical and pharmacy information and see a complete view of each member’s current health.

How data drives improvements in clinical care and costs


ANDREA MARKS: We're not sitting back


and watching the healthcare

system fall apart,


we're actually shaping

what the healthcare system


is going to be in the

future, and that's exciting.


Data in and of itself is

not going to be useful,


you need to be able to take

data and turn it into action.


And we at OptumRx, are really focused


around mining the data and

putting it into action.


We have predictive models

that are put in place


to be able to identify

who needs the right type


of intervention at the right time.


All of our algorithms are built not only


within pharmacy data,

we incorporate a number


of different types of data sources


to be able to get to the right outcome.


The data we have access

to at OptumRx comprises


over 250 million lives and 20

years of longitudinal data.


But also a deep set of clinical

data, information from EMRs,


information from lab results,

behavioral health information


to really provide us with

a very comprehensive set


of information that we can mine.


Synchronization is critically

important to our clients


as well as to our members.


It provides them a single

touchpoint to be able


to engage members at the time


that they are also engaging with us.


When a member calls in and

we have the opportunity


to be able to talk to them

at that point in time,


we wanna make sure that

we've presented all


of the the opportunities that

we have for that individual


so that we can coach them through things,


connect them to the right pieces,


connect them to the

right parts of healthcare


so that we can affect the

overall outcome of that patient.


Success for our clients

is really no surprises.


They wanna make sure that they understand


what happened in the past,

what's happening now,


but then also what's gonna

happen in the future.


We can partner with them to

be able to identify new ways


so that we can actually change

the course of the future.
