The data science and clinician informatics team at LexisNexis® has created a predictive model called the Stress Index to augment the firm’s predictive analytics options, representing the first meaningful industry integration of medical and pharmacy claims information with socio-economic data. The Stress Index predicts health risks more accurately than models that don’t incorporate socio-economic data. The findings indicate that individuals with higher stress have higher health risks, suggesting that they are more likely to require behavioral or social programs or related interventions.
