Quantum Health intercepts members’ healthcare journeys months before claims get filed. Analysis by Cogitativo explains why it’s a cost-saving best practice.

Early intervention is generally accepted as a best practice in health and benefits management, as proven by the efficacy of preventive services such as regularly scheduled screenings for cancer, high cholesterol and diabetes. In general, the earlier a medical condition is identified and appropriately treated, and the earlier consumers understand their options to make effective (and cost-effective) decisions, the better.

But how early is ideal? What circumstances or conditions offer the greatest impact? And what are the best ways to engage consumers so they actively participate in managing their healthcare with less stress, higher confidence and better outcomes? Quantum Health set out to investigate these questions by partnering with data science leader Cogitativo to conduct an independent study of the impact of early intervention in healthcare navigation.
