Blue Health Intelligence Partners With AnalyticsIQ to Enhance Understanding of National Health Disparities
Blue Health Intelligence to Augment Its National Data Repository of 217 Million Unique Health Plan Members With Comprehensive Race and Ethnicity Information
Blue Health Intelligence announced a partnership with AnalyticsIQ to augment BHI’s rich healthcare data with race and ethnicity information. The partnership will add 13 ethnicity and language-related data elements to BHI’s large, longitudinal database of medical and pharmacy claims for millions of unique Americans to expand national analysis and reporting on health disparities.
COVID-19’s disproportionate impact has exposed long-standing healthcare inequalities. Governments and policy bodies have launched new initiatives requiring or encouraging stakeholders to better address underlying social determinants of health (SDOH) when designing and delivering services.

“We are excited to work with AnalyticsIQ,” said Swati Abbott, CEO of BHI. “By securely linking AnalyticsIQ’s ethnicity and language-related data with BHI’s vast national claims data set at a member level, BHI and AnalyticsIQ will be able to compare healthcare access, different care dimensions, and outcomes across various ethnic populations. This capability will enable us to help key healthcare stakeholders fill in missing information needed to produce highly accurate and scalable insights. When paired with BHI’s existing SDOH data and patent-pending predictive and prescriptive models, BHI can also further support healthcare program improvements, research, and community partnerships.”

“We are thrilled to partner with BHI in its effort to improve health outcomes across the U.S.,” said Dave Kelly, CEO of AnalyticsIQ. “The need for and use of reliable data and analytics has exploded in the healthcare industry thanks to its ability to allow health plans, providers, and employers to learn and act quickly on improving the lives of individuals and patients of all types. We are proud to help facilitate the critical insights needed to make this happen.”
Both BHI and AnalyticsIQ are part of the Datavant ecosystem. Datavant’s technology de-identifies healthcare data, removing identifying information while still enabling data to be linked to other data sets. This protects patient privacy while still allowing for advanced analytics.
