Our Innovative Approach to Health Care Strategy

CBIZ adheres to a process that focuses on three steps in the strategic cycle: identify, act and measure.   

Step 1: Identify

Through robust data insights, our Health Innovations team identifies health care cost drivers and employee engagement opportunities, isolates areas of fraud, waste and abuse, and utilizes cost and medical quality performance to curate industry-leading strategies. In addition to claims data, our ability to benchmark quantitative aspects of health plan financing, such as contribution models and specific categorical health plan spend, is supported by our industry-focused, operationally diverse client base.  

We interpret big data and analyze competitive intelligence to create custom reports and uncover meaningful insights that enable our team to develop actionable strategies tailored to the needs of your organization and your employees. 

Step 2: Act

After we've properly interpreted and evaluated claims and benchmarking data, our experts evaluate all possible means to define a multi-year strategy that meets your objectives while also improving cost, quality of care and employee experience. Our extensive experience in population health and epidemiology paired with our distinct expertise in pharmacy, wellbeing and actuarial consulting positions our team to curate strategies that are inclusive of:

  • Network analysis
  • Funding mechanisms
  • Reference-based pricing
  • Direct contracting
  • Higher performance networks
  • Centers of excellence
  • Pharmacy coalitions
  • Rx advocacy
  • Condition-specific strategies
  • Worksite clinics & direct primary care


Step 3: Measure

Once a strategy is deployed, we reaffirm the effectiveness of that strategy by measuring the results of each individual component via our data insights. Are key benchmarks being met? Is the client paying less for health care? Are employees going to the best quality hospitals for care? Are clinical compliance rates improving for members with costly chronic diseases? Are the selected vendors effective? 

This cyclical process of identify, act and measure allows our team to properly develop and validate that our insights and recommendations have a definitive impact on your organization’s ability to offer competitive, cost-effective benefits.
