Insurance Coverage Estimates Report Updates

At Stratasan, we believe in continuous improvement. Sometimes that improvement means making updates to our platform offerings. With that in mind, we want to make you aware of additions to our Canvas platform.

Added Medicare Advantage as Insurance Type

Any covered lives identified as 65+ with a Direct Purchase plan are now separated into the newly created Medicare Advantage insurance type. These covered lives were previously all under the Direct Purchase insurance type. Stratasan is working under the assumption that any direct purchase plan associated with a person 65+ is considered to be Medicare Advantage.

Added Age Group Detail 

Users can now view the insurance coverage for pediatrics, adults, and seniors separately via the report export. A new column for age groupings is included. Ages are split into the following ranges: 0-18, 19-34, 35-64, 65+.

These changes are both effective as of October 22, 2020.

Hospital Cost Report Plus: Now in Blackbird

When trying to assess hospital performance in a data desert, what can you use? HCRIS is often the go-to resource, but raw HCRIS data can be challenging to filter, sort, and decipher. Stratasan has taken HCRIS data, along with other relevant data sources, and created a queryable Blackbird dataset—our Hospital Cost Report Plus—enabling easy and flexible analysis of facility performance.

What you can query with this data:

  • Facility information in one place: a source of common truth on hospital data
  • Financial information: cost reporting and revenue
