Network Rankings and Employee Surveys

A well-documented challenge with disruption analysis is that it measures disruption for existing provider relationships – not necessarily the providers you want. The nature of managed care is that we are often forced to use providers that are not our ‘first choice’ simply because that provider isn’t in-network. The new Rank Networks tool with built-in Employee Surveys in Network360 is a powerful, yet simple tool to address this need.

Rank Networks can be a tremendous tool for both your sales and account management teams. It also gives you the power to run customized disruption analyses for groups of all sizes, not just the large self-funded ones.

  • Meeting one-on-one with a benefits manager or business owner, you can use the Rank Networks feature in Network360 to create a list of the providers who are important to the key decision makers. These can be physicians, hospitals, medical groups, or other types of providers.
  • Send employer-specific survey links to allow client’s employees to anonymously identify the providers that are important to them.
  • Rank the networks in that market based on the number of key providers that are in-network. The salesperson or broker can easily suppress those networks that they don't represent.
  • Get disruption analysis reports for groups of all sizes faster and easier than submitting requests to health plans.
  • You can also quickly and easily generate an email that can be sent to your group’s Benefits Administrator who can then forward it to all employees. This allows the employees themselves to identify the providers that are important to them as well and feel like they are part of the decision-making process. The network ranking can now show the best networks not just for decision-makers, but all the employees as well.

Rank Networks feature doesn't require claim analysis so it's a tool that can work for small groups and large groups equally well. For most health plans, disruption analysis is a luxury reserved only for larger employer groups. Rank Networks gives salespeople and brokers a new tool for addressing this important need for small employers.
