Our Medicare Explorer Module

Medicare Advantage enrollment is steadily growing. Constructing a high-performing network of providers is critical for ACOs preparing to grow in this market, but successful network curation requires more than looking at traditional provider performance. Nascate’s Medicare Explorer solution combines public and client data to provide necessary insight into how people and providers behave, existing relationships […]

Healthcare Days

The complexity of life is impacting how Sam, Bob, and Ted each interact with the healthcare system. Things like family dynamics, geography, the choices a person makes in how they receive care- all give us the full picture of a person and what drives their utilization, or lack thereof.

Are ACOs Getting the Short End?

What is Early Action?

Getting to people early, instead of chasing dollars that have already been incurred, has major advantages for healthcare payers, providers, and most importantly- the person. Nascate EarlyAction means intervening “before”, and micro-targeting action/intervention on a very smallgroup of people, but with substantial results.The power of these results continues to surprise me (I am getting excited).
