Risk resets each year, meaning that healthcare providers need to provide annual documentation of chronic conditions for those conditions to be considered when a risk-adjusted premium is calculated. Arcadians Omar Nema and Michael Gleeson visualized this process over the course of a year for one practice serving 42,705 patients across 166,440 visits.
They found some surprising results. Patient “Jane Smith” was seen 35 times by 5 different clinicians throughout the year. Those clinicians slowly improved Jane’s documented risk profile – but never got more than 70% complete. To learn more, visit the Arcadia Data Gallery and explore this data visualization.
