Softheon Solutions

Softheon solutions combine powerful technology and expertise hardened through years of real-world use to navigate members towards optimal outcomes, ensure healthcare program investments are optimized, and accelerate digital health guidance and adoption. All solutions are designed to foster better clinical, operational, and financial outcomes.

Medicare and Medicare Advantage members represent a highly vulnerable population with multiple chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension.

Softheon solutions can help you find and realize:

  • Increased closure of gaps in care
  • Improved STAR/HEDIS quality ratings
  • Faster member activation and engagement in  specialized care programs

20 percent of Americans use Medicaid, many with complex and costly needs for care. Most Medicaid members receive care through Managed Care Organizations (MCOs).

The complexity of the Medicaid population makes them often hard to reach and requires specialized engagement approaches. Often, socio-economic factors, health equity, and behavioral conditions play an important role in understanding the communication and engagement needs of this population.

Softheon solutions can help you:

  • Find the highest impact areas where member behavior can likely change
  • Better engage with this member population where they are at
  • Deliver faster and continued activation in specialized care programs
  • Help your members make better care choices that produce stronger outcomes and costs

Commercial health plans work hard to ensure members get the care they need when they need it. Still, a 2020 survey showed only 25 percent viewed their health plan as a trusted partner in their health and wellness.

You’re making investments in preventive and primary care services to provide excellent care while managing costs. However, your investments only work if members choose to use them when appropriate.

Softheon solutions can help you:

  • Find which segments need help and are likely to make better choices
  • Engage with member populations to shift behavior and perceptions
  • Shift member choice to programs and care services that deliver impact and ROI
