Insights from DB Lytix in-database analytics help leading health plan identify and predict early stage opioid abuse
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 12, 2016
In-database analytics pioneer Fuzzy Logix will present at the Teradata Partners Conference, Tuesday, Sept. 13, 9:00 a.m. ET on its work with a leading health plan to combat opioid addiction.
More than 60 percent of drug overdoses in the United States involve opioids, and healthcare costs associated with abuse exceed $25 billion a year. The session, Using Analytics to Find and Prevent Opiate Abuse, will cover how Fuzzy Logix DB Lytix™ in-database analytics is used to develop an actionable predictive model that identifies likely opioid abuse before it occurs.
The health plan is using DB Lytix analytics software on Teradata to develop a holistic view of a member’s health based on past medical and pharmacy utilization, location data and demographic information. Findings help guide outreach efforts more sensitively and effectively. To build the models, Fuzzy Logix consultants worked with the plan’s analysts and data scientists to perform predictive and advanced statistical analysis on Teradata using fast and scalable in-database analytics.
“Opioid addiction has become a nationwide healthcare crisis that is destroying lives and racking up billions of dollars in care and treatment,” said Michael Upchurch, Fuzzy Logix COO. “Advancements in big data analytics offer the healthcare industry a way to predict potential addiction and develop the best possible level of care based on an individual patient’s unique circumstances. Fuzzy Logix is proud to play an important role in helping combat this epidemic.”
The session will be held Tuesday, 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. ET in room #C102 at the Teradata Partners Conference in the Georgia World Congress Center.
Fuzzy Logix also is hosting a second session entitled, Access to Healthcare: Analytics to Action, Wednesday, 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. ET, in room #C110, which discusses how a major health plan is using Fuzzy Logix DB Lytix in-database analytics to help improve the delivery of healthcare to its members.
Fuzzy Logix can also be contacted at booth #817 during the Teradata Partners Conference.
