MedBen Selects Verisk Platform for Risk

Verisk's Sightlines Medical Intelligence platform will help the health insurer identify healthcare trends and cost drivers, facilitate benefit program design, improve health status, and reduce spending for its employer clients.

Newark, Ohio-based health carrier MedBen will use the Sightlines Medical Intelligence platform from Waltham, Mass.-based Verisk Health to help assess, manage and report risk.

MedBen will use the web-based predictive modeling and data analytics program to analyze existing claims data to identify and report on quality and cost metrics.
