The Healthcare business of LexisNexis Risk Solutions is committed, more than ever, to our mission of enabling the U.S. healthcare system to operate better to create healthier communities.

The COVID-19 outbreak caused by the novel coronavirus has a profound impact on our healthcare delivery and support systems, our economy, safety, and overall way of life. LexisNexis is committed to supporting the US response by partnering with key healthcare players and leveraging our data assets and technology to provide timely insights that can help those on the front line provide care and resources to at-risk populations.

Our comprehensive analytical solutions leverage our unique identity, provider, and claims data assets and provide the foundation of our COVID-19 Rapid Response data set. This interactive visualization helps answer critical questions about the pandemic, such as:

Where Is There Increased Risk for Poor Health Outcomes with COVID-19?

By layering insights across data sets, LexisNexis Healthcare brings together:

  • Risk scores – to identify at-risk populations
  • De-identified claims assets – to identify trends related to emerging diagnoses, NPIs, and comorbidities
  • Publicly available and partner contributed data – to show a comprehensive view of the U.S. population and potential sources of clinical risk

The COVID-19 Data Resource Center data set identifies information, care needs, resources, and other factors that healthcare organizations and professionals need to make informed decisions about COVID-19. This data answers questions regarding where critical gaps in the healthcare delivery system are that require resources in order to address the potential spread and treatment of COVID-19.

Gain Trending Insights on Telehealth

As COVID-19 and social distancing requirements continue to impact healthcare delivery across the country, telehealth has emerged as the number one way to deliver care. Through remote patient evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment via telecommunication systems, providers deliver vital clinical services to patients, reducing care gaps, and preventing exposure to the virus. From addressing acute symptoms to managing chronic conditions and providing mental health support during these stressful times, physicians, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, and behavioral health professionals changed their established workflows in a matter of weeks.

Access to telehealth services is particularly important in communities at high risk of poor outcomes due to COVID-19, such as where there’s a high percentage of the population 60 years or older with two or more high-risk comorbidities and/or lacking critical care resources to help combat the impact of the virus, such as hospital capacity.

As the demand is surging, providers and other stakeholders are seeking to better understand just how it is being used by various specialties across the country. In a rapidly evolving pandemic, real-time, comprehensive information is required for improved forecasting, allocation of resources, and clinical care delivery healthcare systemwide.

LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ COVID-19 Data Resource Center now includes telehealth trending insights, demonstrating the change in telehealth claim volumes nationwide and the top national change in telehealth claim volumes by specialty, illustrating the weekly percent increases compared to last year’s claims. We are using a vast repository of current and past claims data to chart the change on a weekly basis to give healthcare organizations and other stakeholders access to the most current telehealth information and trends for informed decision making.

Where Are the Potential Shortcomings in Treatment?

In addition, LexisNexis is evaluating a number of critical areas that could identify resource constraints and potential shortages from COVID-19 industry demands. These include:

  • Critical care specialties – such as critical care intensivist, infectious disease specialist, anesthesiologists, cardiologist, and others
  • Hospital capacity and critical care equipment –including the availability of ICU beds
  • Accessibility of healthcare providers –by state, region, and county

Visit our COVID-19 Data Resource Center to view national data insights with drilldown by county. Heat maps are updated daily to quickly address the care needs of the community. Insights into these metrics can help all members of the healthcare community as they work to identify where health assets (PPE, ventilators, beds) are available and needed to mitigate the spread of the virus.

During this unprecedented time for our healthcare system, everyone must do their part to fight the spread of the virus, as well as ensure that those who need care are able to get it quickly.
