Strenuus Insights

While it is clear that the healthcare industry is changing, most organizations don’t have the right resources or tools to actually examine the changing environment and gain an understanding of how those changes are being implemented by various industry participants. As the healthcare industry shifts, we are seeing everything from incumbent insurers offering new networks, to insurers moving into the individual market for the first time, to the entrance of entirely new participants in the industry. The shift will continue as companies refocus their strategies to adjust to the public exchange landscape.

At Strenuus, we have a unique position in this industry – we provide solutions for gaining provider network competitive intelligence – so, we have access to a unique set of data. Our process includes acquiring, standardizing, and matching network data across multiple carriers. As one of the largest collectors of managed care data in the US, we collect data from 400+ payors and thousands of networks in all 50 states, DC, and Puerto Rico.

Since the launch of the public health insurance exchanges, we have been collecting data about new exchange offerings, including which carriers are participating in each of the states and the networks being utilized for exchange plans. As we analyze new HIX provider networks we are finding some very interesting things. So, we are sharing our insights regarding the evolving healthcare landscape.
