LexisNexis Risk Solutions Announces Clarify Health Partnership to Evaluate Predictive Capability of Social Determinants: Health, Clinical Data; Todd Gottula, Hilary Placzek Quoted

LexisNexis Risk Solutions has partnered with Clarify Health, a leading healthcare analytics company that provides AI-driven market intelligence and predictive analytics business applications to health systems, health plans, and life sciences companies to advance data analysis, LexisNexis announced on Wednesday.

"By understanding a patient population outside of just a clinical perspective, you can enable actionable insights to enhance the delivery and quality of patient care. We chose to work with LexisNexis Risk Solutions because of the depth of their data insights and attributes that can help us identify gaps in care around healthcare utilization," said Todd Gottula, co-founder and chief product officer, Clarify Health.

The partnership will enable Clarify Health to use LexisNexis Risk Solutions socioeconomic data to better understand patient populations. Clarify health will leverage the LexisNexis Risk Solutions clinically validated social and behavioral determinants of health data (SDOH) within predictive models that currently utilize clinical data to improve health outcomes, reduce costs and prevent readmissions.

The collaborative effort will integrate individual-level SDOH data into Clarify Health's clinical analytical models to evaluate the quality and efficacy of the data at the point of care to help drive care management decision-making.

LexisNexis and Clarify Health will input individuals' socioeconomic data into predictive models traditionally based on clinical data to standardize the process and and reveal the longitudinal impacts. 

Through the standardization, the companies will be able to better understand social and behavioral determinants of health from the individual to population. With the data, the companies will be able to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs attributed to healthcare.

"Partnering with LexisNexis Risk Solutions and pursuing research that better describes pathways between SDOH factors and health outcomes represents Clarify's commitment to provider- and patient-centered healthcare. We are excited to be leading the way and establishing good practice around social and behavioral data integration in clinical models,” said Hilary Placzek, senior director of research, Clarify Health.
