The following sample of projects illustrates our core competencies and the scope of services we provide to public and private sector clients. For a more in-depth description of Compass’s work on selected projects, see Case Studies.

Regional Health System ACO

A regional provider system participating in multiple accountable care organizations (ACOs) with both public and private payers wanted to manage care for the various populations with a common strategy and monitor progress toward ACO efficiency and quality targets.  It engaged Compass to receive the data streams describing services members consumed, to store the data securely in a common format across ACOs, and to produce both regular reports and ad hoc analyses.  Compass also made the resulting data stores available to ACO staff to perform their own analyses using SAS on Compass servers through a secure connection.

New Hampshire Insurance Department

The Department studied a potential fundamental shift in how health insurance carrier network adequacy is defined, moving from measuring members’ proximity to providers of various types to their proximity to services no matter what type of provider delivers the service.  Compass analyzed the geographic relationship between services delivered and commercially-insured members using the New Hampshire all-payer claim database, supported the Department in its rulemaking process by conducting ad hoc analyses, and assisted in reviewing pre-release draft regulations.

Behavioral health managed care organization sponsored by integrated health system:

Our client depends on Compass to develop rates and annual budgets, model IBNR reserve requirements, and analyze provider reimbursement methodologies and projections. Compass designed and managed the organization’s data warehouse, and we provided access to the data for client staff.

New Hampshire Citizen’s Health Initiative:

Compass provided financial modeling and design for a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded ACO pilot with five large health systems and four payers.

Maine Bureau of Insurance:

Compass provided actuarial services for analyzing premium rate increases for individual and small group plans, assisting the Bureau with evolving requirements under the federal health care reform law.

Massachusetts Center for Health Information and Analysis:

Compass provided the quantitative analysis supporting the Center’s study of the effect on health care costs of existing legislatively mandated insurance benefits. Compass coordinated data gathering among payers, processed the data, and authored quantitative portions of the report. Compass has also assisted the Center with projecting the cost of many legislatively proposed benefit mandates.
