Configuring work around Risk-based contracts

Contract Features

The first step is to determine what standard elements your (actual or expected) contracts contain.  A Total Cost of Care element requires different analytical techniques than does a capitated element. 

Risk Management Life Cycle

Next, take a realistic assessment of where you are in the life cycle of your organization, or even of a specific contractual relationship.  

Analytical Tools and Data

Finally, identify the analytical tools you will need  - reports, data sources (including timeliness constraints), and the in-house talent that will deploy those tools.  

Select the Reporting Tools that Matter to You

Being effective and efficient means knowing where to focus your intellectual capital.  Even if you have enough resources to create all the possible reports, assembling everything into one clear and actionable picture means you will need to choose what matters the most.  


We will get you started, with a comprehensive inventory of analytics.  Then, our matrices will filter down to those most pertinent to your situation. 


Watch for our upcoming publication on Reporting Deep Dive, which will document each report's basic layout, data sources and use cases!
