DST Health Solutions Releases Enhanced ACG System to Help Health Plans Improve Member Health
Date:3/22/2010

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Health Solutions, LLC announced today the release of Version 9.0 of The Johns Hopkins University's Adjusted Clinical Groups (ACG) System. ACG Version 9.0 includes extensive enhancements that not only improve predictive accuracy but also identify opportunities for intervention to improve health outcomes. DST Health Solutions is the exclusive distributor of the ACG System in the United States.

"Risk adjustment and predictive modeling are critical to measuring population health to support quality assessment and payment reform," said Professor Jonathan Weiner, co-developer of the original ACG System and leader of the research and development team at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. "The ACG System was conceived to ensure access and equity in healthcare purchasing. Version 9.0 will allow users to better understand the needs of the chronically ill."

ACG Version 9.0 builds on the success of previous releases by identifying members with chronic conditions that are at risk for low adherence to prescription regimens, poor coordination of care among primary care providers and specialists or acute hospitalization needs. Greater predictive accuracy is also achieved through further refinement of the ACG System's clinical classifications.
