Abacus Insights’ Data Solutions for Payers Are Now Natively Available on Snowflake

Boston, September 20, 2023—Abacus Insights, the leader in data usability for U.S. healthcare payers, offers a breakthrough with bi-directional data sharing for more than 25 use cases including risk adjustment, CMS interoperability, clinical data exchange, cost-of-care management, HEDIS and STAR reporting, pharmacy/specialty benefit management, ASO carve-out and others. As Abacus Insights steadily adds use cases through its expanding array of data solutions natively available on Snowflake, payers including Cambia Health Solutions and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts are accelerating and amplifying the business value of usable data from Abacus Insights made accessible via Snowflake’s Data Cloud.

“Operating on Snowflake has enabled Abacus Insights to give our payer clients unprecedented advantages in data usability, enabling seamless interoperable exchange with vendors, providers and other partners. Our collaboration is a game changer for technology teams who can now supply validated, on-demand data across their organizations to better engage members, lower employee healthcare spend, reduce operational costs and increase revenue,” said Minal Patel, MD, Founder and CEO of Abacus Insights.

Abacus Insights consolidates structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data from internal and external sources, then standardizes and validates it through a four-stage data transformation platform. The result is data that represents a new standard in usability defined by six criteria: accurate, complete, timely, relevant, versatile and use case and application agnostic. Abacus can update its usable data every 15 minutes versus the industry average of 24 hours and make it available in any required formats, tools and apps, not just for IT and data experts, but for business users, members, providers, vendors and other parties with specific use cases in mind.

For payers already using or interested in adding Snowflake, Abacus Insights ensures the interoperable usable data is accessible, on demand through Snowflake Data Cloud, providing payers with opportunities to scale analytics, operations, and gain advanced capabilities, even unlocking the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Payers can populate the usable data directly into business intelligence tools via Snowflake’s Data Cloud.
